Mobile technology can manage efficiently Physics knowledge with mobile devices trough graphical context (a set of graphical elements that surrounds and explains concepts) and multi touch features. This communication shows the development of mobile math technology applied to Physics from a teamwork of university professors and companies (Girona and Barcelona, Catalonia) aimed to the global education community. Several pilots are shown: from a single formula to a network (Force, Work and Power), from an academic view (dimensional analysis) to a market-oriented (gasoline consumption, car management).

There are several innovations to take into account. A graphical context (symmetries, colors, icons...) manages Physics information in a coherent and intuitive way. User manages dynamic information when establishing input values, processing and quantifying the results. The way of operating and representing numbers through geometrical forms: any number can be graphically visualized in any tablet screen! No text or number-driven way; a graphical way is fully used. Everything is done with multi-touch gestures! New ways to show Physics with awesome screens.
keywords: mobile, tablet, physics.
