Abstract
Education is one of the basic needs of a child. The knowledge imparted through education is key to the recipient’s growth and skilfulness. In most cases, education is attained by attending a school (face to face) where several subjects are taught. Of all the subjects taught in schools, mathematics is a fundamental subject that cuts across all disciplines, hence a significant field for all school-going children. For some children, they find it easy to understand basic mathematical concepts and excel tremendously in the subject. However, quite a number struggle to learn both deep mathematical concepts and the most essentials skills such as addition, subtraction, multiplication, fractions, and decimals. As a result, this project seeks to develop a tablet-based math application for primary school pupils in grade 1 and grade 2, based on the Ghanaian education system. The app simplifies addition, subtraction and object grouping for pupils by making it fun through interactive game like activities.
