Algebra Readiness: Learn Algebra 1 on OS X

Algebra Readiness

The non-profit MIND Research Institute last week launched a new national intervention program, Algebra Readiness. The full year course is aimed at middle and high school students and endeavors to 'rebuild a solid maths foundation' and prepare students for success in 'Algebra 1'. Algebra Readiness offers a 'rigorous yet engaging curriculum', that encourages to 'look' and visualize mathematics problems from simple arithmetic to linear algebra concepts. "Algebra Readiness features MIND's patent-pending visual approach, which both engages students at any level, and explains math in a direct but powerful way they can understand and retain... MIND developed the program in response to the persistent low student success rate in Algebra I classes and the increasing use of Algebra I as a requirement for a high school diploma." said Dr. Matthew Peterson, a neurosurgeon who helped develop the software.

With a complete range of course materials including textbooks for students and teachers, as well as additional learning materials, Algebra Readiness is used by over 59,000 students, 3,500 teachers, and 300 schools in California and Texas. The Universal Binary application requires Mac OS X 10.3.9 or later.
