Algebra World software will turn struggling students into successful math learners and average students into accelerated math learners!
Algebra World teaches and reinforces introductory algebra concepts and meets NCTM standards. Mathematics topics have series of lessons and real world examples that accompany them. Equations and their relationship to word problems are emphasized throughout the program.
The major topics covered in Algebra World are: Expressions, Variables, Algebra Notation, Pattern Recognition, Integers, One Variable Equations, Two Step Equations, Ratio, Proportion and Percent, and Geometry. Each topic has a series of detailed lessons designed to teach key mathematical concepts. The lessons are followed by challenges in three skill levels that assess understanding of the subject and mathematical reasoning ability.
MathRealm's research showed that students are not as responsive to long narrations in software as they are to interactive visuals and audio effects that draw them into the program as active learners, rather than passive listeners.
Hands-on virtual manipulatives with limited text reading and immediate visual feedback will capture your students' attention and help them understand concepts, as well as develop logical reasoning.
