Middle
Grades Math  Level 1 is the first program from Math League Multimedia
designed to help students sharpen their math skills. The program is designed
for 6th grade students, and is organized to supplement a standard 6th
grade curriculum. There are over 5000 practice questions organized by
math subjects, in addition to online help. There are 40 different major
math subjects covered. Each subject has 6 days of practice problems of
increasing difficulty. There are about 20 to 30 practice problems per
day. A large number of word problems give students practice in applying
their mathematical knowledge. Due to the large number and wide range of
topics covered in this program, the program would be useful for advanced
5th graders, as well as 7th and 8th graders who need to sharpen some of
their more basic math skills.
Students enter
their answer for each problem, and are graded on a problem by problem
basis. Correct answers are given for each problem, and many of the problems
have detailed solutions so students can learn various problemsolving
methods. Students can also browse help, search help topics, create bookmarks,
and save reports on their progress.
Teachers love
the Report Writer feature in Middle Grades Math  Level 1. Students'
responses are saved for each problem, as well as the correct answer to
each problem. Summary information showing the students' name, the time
spent on the problem set, the number of problems answered, the number
of problems marked correct are all saved, along with the percent of problems
marked correct.
