Spotlight Review — Practical Homeschooling

... here's what sold me on this program. While doing PSAT preparation we learned that my oldest (and math resistant) daughter was weak on probability, so I had her work with the Word Problems/Probability CD. Initially she had some trouble. Now, normally this would mean waiting till the regular math tutor (me) was available, 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!

MATH-TEACHER

MATH-TEACHER makes the teaching and learning of math as easy as math can get! Mathematics builds progressively from concept to concept. MATH-TEACHER helps students understand each concept before moving on to the next. Each lesson first presents the concepts and an infinite number of sample problems.

The interactive tutorial requires no pencils and paper! No multiple choice or fill in the blank, MATH-TEACHER understands every step of a student's solution! Students type symbolic expressions in a free-style format, MATH-TEACHER analyzes each line and indicates whether it is correct or not. This analysis detects common mistakes and provides focused help. The process repeats until the answer is reached. MATH-TEACHER perceives the proficiency of the student and generates problems accordingly.

Several levels of help are provided, including:

• Online textbook with a lesson on each concept
• Sample problems with detailed solutions
• General guidance on how to begin or continue a problem
• Hints to solve a specific problem

Each module covers 1 to 1.5 years of mathematical concepts. The Customization Utility allows the instructor to fine tune and control the tutorial and on-screen tests. The timed On-screen Tests display all problems so the student can choose the one to answer next (duration, difficulty and scope can be customized).

The Problems Generator for Printed Tests prints problems with and without answers, as homework or as hardcopy tests. The step-by-step answers are complete with explanations, charts, figures, graphs, and tables.

The Calculator provided in MATH-TEACHER is designed to work with algebraic expressions. Rational expressions yield both rational and the approximate real results. Student scores are collected automatically to simplify record keeping.

These unique features make MATH-TEACHER the private tutor of each student!
