Look Up & Practice Math Problems
The Math Resource is an interactive math dictionary that lets students become their own math tutor. It covers a comprehensive list of topics from algebra to group theory. Each topic has its own curriculum guide for quick and easy access to the database.
Once a definition is located, the math examples shown can be interactively explored with existing data or by entering new data. The software lets one do "what if?" analysis, generate numerical and graphical solutions using Maple, generate graphs in 2D or 3D using Maple, and access information by word search, alpha search and curriculum guide search.
A free demo is available by visiting the firm's Web site at http://www.mathresources.com/demodisk.htm or by phone. Math Resources, Inc., Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada, (902) 429-1323. W
