My friends at Zap Zap Math has been building an education platform that makes learning math a joy for kids from kindergarten age to Grade 6 and beyond.

Fun with Maths

Through Zap Zap Math, math learners are entering a universe of play aligned with Common Core standards, and engaging in structured lessons that encourages higher order thinking skills and better retention of new math concepts at their own pace. Because they have full rein on how fast they learn plus it’s incentivized (i.e., scoring system, new levels unlocked, etc.), kids absorb the lessons far quicker.

Students’ Progress Tracking

Zap Zap Math also enables teachers to track and assess each student’s individual progress with updated, easy-to-digest performance analytics. It’s a great self-guided supplement for math classes, and an educational past time for kids during the extended holidays!

..and it’s Free!

Do support the Zap Zap Math team by downloading the free app and trying it out with your students, as well as sharing the good news with other passionate teachers like yourself.

In Windows, the Wii Remote Plus requires the use of the Toshiba Bluetooth Stack or the DolphinBar. For more information regarding this issue, you may refer to

Some Smoothboard users have difficulties installing the Toshiba Bluetooth Stack and thus I have made a tool to simplify the process.

If you have difficulties installing the Toshiba Bluetooth Stack for your device, this tool may work for you. If you have any issues with the tool, you may post a comment here.

The Bluetooth Stack Tool automates some of the steps required to force the Toshiba drivers to be used for your Bluetooth adapter.

The following steps are automated:

  1. Identify your Bluetooth Adapter’s hardware ID.
  2. Insert the entries into C:\Program Files (x86)\Toshiba\Bluetooth Toshiba Stack\Drivers\tosrfusb\tosrfusb.inf.
  3. Update the registry to pretend to be a Toshiba Bluetooth Stack compatible adapter.
