Middle Grades Math - Level 1

Picture of Middle Grades Math - Level 1Middle 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 problem-solving 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.

Middle Grades Math - Level 1 runs on PC-Windows platforms. It is available on CD-ROM..
