The Hostos Math Web App is an in-house, online math application that allows students to practice their math skills using a browser and any device able to connect to the Internet; e.g. smart phones. The application has been gamified so that students are challenged to “beat” their previous high score. All results are accessible to the instructor for intervention and/or assessment. This presentation will show the application in detail and model its use. Data will be shown that highlights the students’ reaction to this app as well as quantitative data comparing classes that used the application versus control groups.
