The purpose of this study is to provide a better approach to learning numeracy module since it includes interactive and attractive interfaces to engage students to the module. It also evaluates the effectiveness of the application in preparing students for LINUS. The results from user acceptance testing show that this application gives a lot of benefits to students who are weak in numeracy and can increase the students’ interest in learning numeracy module for LINUS
