Abstract
Over the past decade, the use of tablets in teaching basic school students has increased by 32.1%. [0] In this project, the researcher considers and analyses a tablet-based mathematics software and how feasible its implementation and use will impact the understanding of mathematics. A quantitative and qualitative test was carried out on 20 primaries one and two students and the result shows an improved understanding of mathematics knowledge using the tablets. The effects, however, may depend on how long an instructor spends with the students and if the use of the tablet is led by a teacher. This research paper should provide insight to some background work, related works in this domain, data collection approaches, application development and suggestions that will enable future researchers in this field to further enhance the development and adoption.
