MathTech: Math aids for students with dyslexia and dysgraphia



ModMath is the first free iPad app that helps kids with dyslexia and dysgraphia do math by providing virtual graph paper that keeps problems legible. To create a worksheet, kids simply tap in a cell of the graph paper. As kids enter equations, the program aligns numbers and symbols in neat columns and rows. Kids can save their worksheets and print to PDF to share or print.
