Interface Design: Texas Math Tools

Texas Math Tools was an application created to help high school students practice solving different math problems. The problems were presented in the Texas Math book; students would then launch the appropriate tool to complete each question. So, if students were having trouble understanding negative numbers they could open up Integer Counters to practice adding and subtracting negative numbers.
