Solution description

The goal of our application is to provide students and teachers with a platform for creating and calculating mathematical examples. There is also a duel option that allows students to challenge their friend or any platform user to measure their skills and experience. The application will be free, but you must create an account to use all the features of the application. We will measure success by the number of downloads, user activity, and the number of uploads. The advantage of our application is the creation of examples and sharing them between friends and users of the platform.

Solution context

We did not face any significant problems when creating our application. The only problem is that we don't have a proper application development program. The current biggest challenge is to develop our proof of concept into a real app.

Solution target group

We focus mainly on high school students, and anyone else interested in learning mathematics.

Solution impact

The impact of our solution will hopefully be making math a fun subject to learn and its success will be measured by the amount of online users.

My friend: I don't know math Me: so download Mathfest lol

Solution innovativeness

Certain apps with the same idea of making math more accessible and fun already exist, but our solution differs in the ability to create new examples and its target audience. Instead of basic math concepts we focus on high school level education. It can also serves as a tool for testing and teaching math in a clasroom.

Solution transferability

This solution could be extended into other similar subjects like Physics or Electronics. For example duels can be played in almost any subject taught in schools.

Solution sustainability

We plan to develop our solution into an application and bring it to Google play and App store.In the long term we would like to see our app spread across Czech Republic and then be localised into different languages to increase its accessibility. 

Solution team work

Our group consisted of 5 people. We decided to divide our work right in the beginning so our Teamwork went smooth and we helped each other along the way. We could definitely work together again in the future.
