Real Analysis Math Education App

Case ID:

Inventors at the University of Arizona have developed an application that delivers lessons on mathematical concepts to students enrolled in a real analysis mathematics course. The application includes lesson overviews, graphs that can be manipulated by users, and true/false questions to reinforce learning experiences. The app can be updated and refined to incorporate the feedback of the students.



With the use of smartphones becoming ubiquitous, there is a need to leverage these devices as a platform to provide learning experiences for students. In addition, over 6.7 million students were enrolled in post-secondary online courses in 2014. Designed as a companion to Real Analysis of One Variable (MATH 425A/525A), a course offered at the University of Arizona, this app works as an aid in teaching upper division math courses.
