Inspiration

With remote learning being used to teach, it gets harder to learn, especially when your teacher isn't there to directly teach and help you. Elementary school students, in particular, might have a difficult time with the online teaching, especially in mathematics. Children are the future, so it is our responsibility to teach them everything they need to learn, even if it is in the most unconventional setting. This website was created to be a kid-friend website to assist young students to understand mathematical concepts.

What it does

Students are able to use Cowculator to find descriptions and examples on math subjects that might be hard for them to understand. This website includes concepts from addition to counting money, and is aimed for students in first to fourth grade.

How we built it

The mockup of the site was created on Figma. The front-end was created using HTML, CSS, Javascript, Bootstrap. The back-end was created using Javascript, Express.js, and Google App Engine.

Challenges we ran into

We had some trouble with the alignment of the text and buttons on the pages. We also had trouble with routing to get the pages connected to each other.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

We are proud of using Express.js for this project because, it was the first time using it, and we were happy with how it turned out. We are also proud of how many pages we were able to make with

What we learned

One thing we learned from creating this project was how to use Express.js. It was our first time using it, so majority of the time was used to research on the topic and trial and error. We also learned how to deploy a node.js app on the Google App Engine.

What's next for Cowculator

Due to the time constraints, we were not able to implement all the pages we hoped to have. We hope to create a profile so students are able to track their progress, or see concepts that they might need help with. We also hope to create the calculator function, which would be used to assist students when they complete a practice problem.
