This article is in collaboration with Math911.
Professor Martin Weissman has been teaching Mathematics for 50 years. Passionate about the subject, he desires to help students overcome their fear of Mathematics and to master it. In his years of teaching, he felt that students needed fewer explanatory textbooks and more illustrative examples to help them understand how to do higher math problems. To that end, he developed the Math911 tutorial software.
The Math911 tutorial software download generates problems for students to solve in Introductory Algebra, Intermediate Algebra, College Algebra, Statistics, Trigonometry, and Pre-Calculus. No answers are marked “wrong.” The student must get a certain number of problems “correct” to prove mastery and move to the next level. If the student does not understand how to do the problem, he may click on a button for step-by-step instructions to see the problem being solved. He may follow these step-by-step instructions for as many problems as necessary to understand the process. Professor Weissman wanted to give students practice, practice, practice in all types and variations of problems.
The Homeschool Review Crew members were given the complete download of this product, and some received codes to review it with multiple students. We then each reviewed the level of math at which our students were working, from Introductory Algebra through Pre-Calculus. For Introductory Algebra only, there are also free PDF downloads with some explanations of how to do the problems.
The complete Math911 program is available at http://math911.com/ for the discounted price of $49.95. That includes all the subjects listed above. As a special back-to-school offer, you may try a free download of the Introductory Algebra course from the website. Tech support is always free. The age range is 12 and up, or any student who is ready for Introductory Algebra.
