Middle-school courseware targets algebra

updated 04:30 pm EDT, Mon October 1, 2007

MIND middle-school algebra

The MIND Research Institute has released a new courseware package, ST Math: Algebra Readiness Supplemental. The software targets teachers of middle-schoolers, helping them prepare students for algebra through a series of visually-oriented game modules. These concentrate on a variety of basic, underlying concepts, such as variables, long division, fractions and exponents, and are geared towards meeting both state and national government standards. Students playing the modules only advance at their own rate, as they must master each module before moving on.

The courseware pack is now on sale, shipping in a hybrid PowerPC/Windows format. Licenses are sold on a perpetual or subscription basis, the latter costing $89 per student, or $120 per sequential user, including training and support. Owners of of a license can track student status reports online.
