>Streamlined Grant Process Gives Algebra Teachers Free
>Professor Weissman's Software announces the availability
of free copies of its flagship product, Math911, to
qualified schools. Math911 is a Windows application that
makes it easy for students to master Introductory and
Intermediate Algebra, as well as College Algebra,
Trigonometry, and Precalculus.
>With its streamlined grant approval process, Professor
Weissman's Software provides educators in middle schools,
high schools, and colleges with immediate, free use of
Math911 in their classrooms for the remainder of the 2002-
2003 school year. Grants are easy to apply for, and
approval notices are sent quickly to qualified applicants.
>Math911 contains twenty chapters containing multiple
lessons, and a range of difficulty levels. Chapters include
Prealgebra, real numbers, linear equations and
inequalities, exponents, polynomials, factoring, rational
expressions, radicals, linear graphs, systems of equations,
conic sections, quadratic equations, complex numbers,
absolute equations and inequalities, x word problems, x and
y word problems, College Algebra, Trigonometry, and
>Since all questions are generated randomly in real-time,
students can continue to practice their math skills until
they master them. Students can do keyword searches for a
topic which is not named in the chapter headings. The
program includes grade reports by chapter, by lesson, and
by difficulty level, allowing students to track their
progress and achievements.
>When students provide an incorrect answer, they can see a
step by step solution that explains, in non-technical
jargon, both the reasoning process and the mechanics of
solving the problem. Math911's built-in calculator makes it
easy to perform simple arithmetic, as well as sine, cosine,
tangent, roots, powers, and logs.
>Math911 can also be used for classes reviewing for SAT,
ACT, GED, or CLEP exams, or with students in need of
refreshing math skills for a new job. Math911 is so easy to
use that it actually makes it fun to master Algebra.
>Math911 runs under Windows 95/98/Me/NT4/2000/XP, and costs
$29.95 for the student edition, and $69.95 for the school
standalone edition, with multi-user and site licenses
