With exams around the corner, stressed students and parents are on the lookout for ways to improve test scores. While subjects like Social Science and languages can be learned, concept-driven subjects such as Maths and Science are a different ballgame. Maths and Science require more practice than theory and excelling in these subjects means hitting the jackpot, since they are considered subjects where one can possibly secure high scores. Learning apps can aid in studying Maths and Science, using artificial intelligence and machine learning to helps students learn at their own individual pace, which is often missing in classrooms.

Here are five apps which your kids and you can explore to score better in Maths and Science:


Brainly is a global crowd-learning platform which aims to encourage curiosity with a flow of questions. The app gets queries on subjects like Algebra, Chemistry, Biology, Algorithm, Geometry, etc which are answered by experts. Learners can upload a picture of the problem they are attempting to solve and ask for help wherever they are stuck. Not restricted to just students, it can be helpful for parents and teachers also who want to gain in-depth knowledge in these subjects.
