Mobile technology is based mainly on graphical context and touch screen features. Therefore, brain disciplines are relevant in order to take the most. Traditional knowledge from classical ways to show numerical relations comes from more than a millennium ago; the tools were primitive. Nowadays, we have the powerful mobile devices. So, a team of researchers and developers has applied neuroscience in Mobile Math Technology.

Didactics follow historical tradition so change comes with difficulty even if a new mobile technology demonstrates its advantages. This paper provides not only a scheme as well as examples but also different topics of neuroscience. Then, benefits are shown. For instance, visual information is show trough form, proportion, location, depth, color, movement, static position and light intensity. When applied, numerical relations are shown tru geometrical forms (classical and modern as Sierpinski fractal), number quantification and color (for instance: negative numbers are shown in red)... The team has pilots and different experiences that show the benefits: it broadens the use of math formulas to and, when it is applied to a specific collectivities, math becomes easier and faster to learn.
