__BETT Awards 2018__

Astro Algebra was shortlisted as a finalist in the category:

Educational App 2018

Astro Algebra did not win but was Highly Commended!

Astro Algebra is a space themed app based on introducing algebra in Key Stages 2, 3 and 4 as well as being a great way to start understanding algebra for those revising for the 11+ grammar tests. Each planet has a different topic and stars can be gained, which are dependent on how fast you answer the questions (and if it is the correct answer first time). Each planet can be replayed until you gain the maximum number of stars for each planet! The number of stars earned are linked to the medal you can achieve in Astro Algebra.

There is a learn section for each planet to help you understand the different aspects of algebra. In this section the child is walked through how to solve the algebra on this ‘planet’ with different examples.

There are two options under play - practise and a challenge. The practise are all questions that are multiple choice and do not count towards the stars and medals. The challenge section is a mixture of multiple choice questions and questions that require the child to type in an answer.

This app was highly commended in the BETT Awards 2018 (in the category of best educational app) and has won a gold award at the Horizon Interactive Awards 2018 for mobile app.

This amazing app concept was built in conjunction with Zeta – my local app developer in Poole (UK). You can find out more about them at https://www.zeta.net/
