Now, this app is really a learning app, it has many subjects you can learn with a lot of illustrations and Tests.

I personally used this app for my A level studies and I found it very interesting. The app mostly focuses on video learning and it is not bad because most of us like watching than reading. I don't know if you are even going to read this line or just the headings. 

4. LinkedIn Learning (1M+ users)

5. Photomath (50M+ Users)

The name itself gives you an idea that it is a math app. It is really a cool app and I recommend all the school students to use it to get maths answers directly.

It is very simple to use, open the app and take a photo of the question than in a few seconds you get the answers with the procedure how you get or work that question out. 

This app can instantly help you out with topics;

Basic Math/Pre-Algebra: arithmetic, integers, fractions, decimal numbers, powers, roots, factors 
Algebra: linear equations/inequalities, quadratic equations, systems of equations, logarithms, functions, matrices, graphing, polynomials

I love this app so much and I have been using this app since I was in grade 7.

Most of the schools are not going to continue with their learning but some schools will continue to learn online. So it not safe to assume that staying at home means we are on holidays, if you are thinking that way then please change your thinking and take look at the calendar and the topics you have covered till now, those writing ecz this year please continue to move on even when you are at home.

As for the past papers, this website has got a lot of past papers to revise from, visit our ecz past papers page and revise as you study. Download Useful Textbooks from our website (Extra Materials) to study further and revise the topics you already did at your school.
