The native languages of many countries have had a considerable reduction in their number of speakers due to factors like globalization, the predominance of ruling languages, and precarious State policies for their revaluation and survival, among others. Despite this, the population conserves them as the spoken language in their daily lives and many contexts, as the sole language. Such is the case of Peru, which has three official languages: Spanish, Aymara, and Quechua; the latter is spoken at the national level by 13.6% of the population and in the Department of Apurímac the total is 69.69% of its inhabitants. In these contexts, policies have been implemented to achieve bilingual education; however, these efforts are not reflected in the construction of digital teaching/educational material in the Quechua language. For this reason, this research presents the design, development, and deployment of an educational digital tool for the Mathematics area of 2nd grade of primary school in the Quechua language in a web version, which was built using the Census Assessment of Students as a guide. The results obtained show that the students present a positive attitude to the use of a digital application in their mother tongue, however, there was a significant finding referred to the difficulty in reading the sentences proposed in the evaluation, since the language is above all verbal, an approach to a writing system has been null or little.
