Arc Maths received the maximum 5 stars from the Educational AppStore Review panel. Read some of the comments about Arc Maths:
The application ‘ARC Maths’ is an easy to use, student-friendly platform that helps you remember all of the key skills you need to be successful at secondary Maths. This application covers maths content taught between the ages 11-16 and includes all content within the GCSE syllabus across most exam boards. ARC Maths works closely with the user identifying gaps in mathematical knowledge resulting in a bespoke effective learning programme. This application is free from adverts and is a subscription-based package. The application is supported by an extensive developers website.
The student enters the level by pressing the ‘Start’ button on a clear and intuitive dashboard. The student answers 12 questions unsupported. The first 2 questions are warm-up times table questions. The other 10 questions are on topics that you may have recently practised, ones that you have forgotten, ones that you might be about to forget, some that are just revision and possibly a couple of new topics to see how you get on. The developer suggests that “The more time you spend on the app, the better Arc will get to know you, and what you need”.
The script recognition
Many of the questions will ask you to write an answer in the space provided which is then identified by the application (script recognition technology) and converts it into a number, fraction etc. This works seamlessly. Other questions may ask you to match, select or order items on the screen. The developers have included a drop-down screen for working out and calculator icon lets you know whether you can use a calculator or not. You can rub out your answer by using the reset button or just by crossing out.
The variety of questions
We were very impressed by the variety of the questions, examples include; multiplication, division, multiples, graphs, angles, shapes and so much more. This kept of users engaged and wanting to practise more and more."
Arc Maths is a wonderful application that supports ages 11-16 for those who are studying mathematics and for those who are embarking on a GCSE level. The application makes maths fun and engaging as well as embedding those key skills for knowledge retrieval. Our users found the app intuitive and easy to navigate and with only 10 minutes per session they found their maths knowledge progressing rapidly. No time wasting just high-quality questions and answers!
