The Math Slate
The Math Slate uses an old-fashioned chalkboard motif to teach students ages 5 through 10 basic math skills in addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. Each skill is divided into three levels of difficulty that encompasses basic facts, problem solving and more advanced techniques. Teachers can take advantage of the feedback features, which present automatic feedback that can be adjusted to each individual student. The Math Slate allows teachers to create their own problem sets, as well as provides them with reports of students' responses that they can review to discover any problem areas.
