"...but because of the immediate and untiring ability of this
program to provide help (lessons, an infinite number of sample
problems, general guidance in how to start and hints for specific
problems) she was able to understand the new concepts on her own!"
"This curriculum is a complete program, beneficial for the student who enjoys learning on the computer. For those who prefer pencil and paper, it's easy to use MATH-TEACHER's Printed Problem Generator to print homework or tests, with and without step-by-step solutions. Problems are randomly generated so students who need more practice can be given another worksheet of equivalent difficulty" full review
A letter from Al Houseman
Ontario High School,
...The students are now enjoying the challenge of getting the problem done, and done correctly. They want to pass from one level to the next and realize that the fewer number of mistakes they make the quicker they can accomplish that goal.
They seem also to be gaining a quicker understanding of the material because of the immediate reinforcement, even though it is negative, when they make a mistake. The fact that they must work in an organized manner and not helter skelter all over the page adds to their success as well.
We took a hard copy test of the material in Algebraic Expressions in class today. The students seemed to finish in a reasonable time and felt the material was not too difficult.
All in all I believe they enjoy of the experience of using the program and are increasing their skills. They are disappointed when something interferes with a scheduled visit to the computer lab and are punctual and on task when they are in the lab.
