First, it will allow kids to conduct mathematical investigations by themselves.

Second, it will help them acquire other thinking skills particularly problem-solving and as mathematician Paul Halmos (1980) stated, 'problem solving is the heart of mathematics'.

Third, it helps kids get a deeper appreciation of mathematics and use it in their daily and working lives.

What is an App Smash? Content created in one app transferred to and enhanced by a second app and sometimes third. Preferably the final product is then published to the web – remember, digital presence is the new résumé (CV).
