The app is set to go “live” on Android and IOS platforms towards the end of May and will be available for Years 7 to 11 to access on tablets, phones and other devices.
Gursharan Singh, aged 20, who is based in Rugeley, has taken six months out from studying aeronautical engineering at Loughborough University to launch the app together with co-directors Tom Faulkner, aged 20, who is studying history and politics at Manchester Metropolitan University, and 19-year-old Edward Farnell, who is studying law at Manchester.
The three friends met while studying at St John Fisher Trinity Sixth Form at Stoke-on-Trent.
Now they have joined forces as directors of Numero AR Limited, based in Rugeley, to launch the mathematics revision app that uses augmented reality to bring the subject to life.
Gursharan said: “This method of visualisation is going to make it easier for students to understand the concepts in maths as well as making learning more fun.
“Having recently done GCSEs ourselves, we acknowledged the current, outdated ways of learning and decided to implement an emerging technology called augmented reality into mathematics to help students understand and enjoy learning this subject.
“The app will be free to download and will initially have some free content. Then parents will be able to top up at a cost.”
