Just In Time: Math

In the summer of 2016, I taught web development to middle and high school students in Washington, DC with the College Success Foundation. During this time I became close with one of my students who was thriving in my class, but was struggling with basic math skills. A year later I was reflecting on my experience and I decided that I would like to build an application to help that student. For this reason I created Just In Time: Math.

JIT Math is an iMessage application that allows users to take and challenge others to quick, three question math tests. Users can choose the operation (addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division) and the highest number used in the operations. Following that choice the user can take the quiz or send an invite to take the quiz to a peer via iMessage.  

This application is now in the App Store and I hope one day it will become a tool for mentors, parents, and children to engage with and improve on directly with mathematics.
