Two college students after observing math classes in their local middle school for one semester wrote this letter to the math department:

"We propose the purchase of MathMedia computer software to help teach the students math in a more exciting and interesting way. These programs will supplement teacher lectures... with progress recorded by the software, giving teachers the ability to see where more improvement may be needed. Another benefit to this program is to prepare students to take the Standards of Learning exams as well as teaching computer literacy.

Not only is math a difficult subject, but focus has become a major issue. Presenting material in this refreshing way gives students a second chance to learn the universal language of math. Learning through MathMedia interactive programs will give students the upper hand in getting ready for thse types of tests. Teaching software is an investment in both the students' future and also the school. The programs will help current students and also future students that pass through the door.

After doing research, some additional benefits include easy to use software that is both entertaining and educational. It is based off of establish curricula and is already in use in hundreds of schools ranging from elementary to college.

The program does not require much supervision and allows the student to navigate and move at their own learning pace. One major advantage this particular software has over other programs currently in use is that it is much more than just testing software, but includes actual lessons and gives hints on how to solve the problems. By using this more entertaining form of software, students will better focus on the material, leading to better retention and improved grades.

Having worked with these students for a semester has shown that they clearly have the ability to succeed, but the teachers require more tools to keep the children's focus and motivate them. The MathMedia software will provide this and much more, and truly is an investment that will pay for itself through the success of the children."
D.M. Middle School

My son used your geometry software during this school year. He felt it provided him additional suppport that was not always available at school and helped produce an A for both semesters. In addition, he felt that the software was an excellent review for the final exam. Today I am purchasing the Algebra Series by Topic as a resource for him this school year. Thank you!
