ZyroMath: New Switch Accessible Math App in Development

ZyroMath is a switch accessible Math app now in development. ZyroMath is designed to be fun and engaging to children with or without special needs. Through a grant from the National Institute on Disability and Rehabilitation Research (NIDRR) of the U.S. Department of Education, the Rehabilitation Engineering Research Center for Wireless Technologies (Wireless RERC) seeks to enhance the use and usability of wireless technologies for people of all ages and abilities. The Wireless RERC is headquartered at the Shepherd’s Center in Atlanta, Georgia. As part of the RERC’s mobile applications development project, the “App Factory” was initiated to develop software applications (“apps”) to enhance the utility and usability of wireless products and services for wireless customers with and without disabilities.

This year, five apps were selected for development during the 2014-15 grant year.  We are pleased to announce that our ZyroMath app was one of the apps selected.

ZyroMath is designed to be a fun and engaging app that drills and challenges students on basic math skills. ZyroMath is tied to the common-core curriculum, and is accessible to children with special needs. ZyroMath will offer a unique way for kids to master basic math skills in the format of a fun 3D game based on our ZyroSky runner game concept. Kids will love practicing counting, comparisons, addition, subtraction and other math concepts with their robot friend Zyro.

Key Features:

  • Self paced math practice program
  • Virtual rewards and games
  • Monitor progress with a real-time dashboard for parents and teachers
  • Mode designed to automatically set the app parameters based on the motor skill abilities of the child
  • HD graphics and sound effects to give an amazing game play experience
