    "What are you guys talking about?"

    January 19, 2004

    Version: Algebra One on One 4.0

    Summary

    This is a great little programme. When I needed to brush up on my skills a few years ago I tried this and loved it. Now that I'm in school again I was glad I tracked it down. High graphics would just slow it down. I think this was designed by math teachers. I like it anyway. Try it.

    "Math quiz"

    Version: Algebra One on One 4.0

    Summary

    Not good at targeting what you need help in -- very basic.

    "Excellent concept - poor execution."

    October 22, 2003

    Version: Algebra One on One 4.0

    Summary

    Rudimentary graphics aside (the hand cursor seems backward), the interface is rough. Find a designer to help you make it look prettier.

    Then work on the functionality. Once I figured out what I was being asked to do, I managed to answer all the questions correctly. But I'm trying to teach someone the importance of SHOWING YOUR WORK! This program shows how the answer was reached AFTER it's been reached. Need to somehow give the user a workspace to actually work through the equation - not just in their head or, heaven forbid, with pencil and paper! ;-)

    Good luck! I'll be checking back to see how it comes along in version 5.

    "It's not THAT fun!"

    October 17, 2003

    Version: Algebra One on One 4.0

    Summary

    Maybe it's because the program isn't really what I was looking for, but I really didn't find this useful at all.

    "Learn Algebra by DOING"

    February 08, 2002

    Version: Algebra One on One 4.0

    Summary

    Not the best interface, so it may take a few minutes to understand. Suprisingly, this doesn't take away from its effectiveness. The layout actually begins to make some sense as you begin using the software. The method of teaching however is excellent: Do and see the results, over and over and over. This program not only teaches you by making you do the work repetitiously, it STRENGTHENS your understanding through repetition until the subject matter sinks in, becoming second nature. By the way, you control how many times you want to continue solving practice problems. Another attractive feature is that the questions (or expressions) aren't canned. The expressions that you solve (you'll be given the answer if you can't solve it after a few tries), are created on the fly. This reduces the chance of you memorizing the answers to the expressions, and gives the software a fresh feel every time you start solving problems (unlike a book, once you solve a book's problems you can't continue to practice on new problems without buying a different book).

    "Terrible program"

    December 19, 2001

    Version: Algebra One on One 4.0

    Summary

    This program doesn't teach you anything, if they were giving it away for free, I wouldn't keep it. The graphics are terrible, no examples and logic behind the program. I put this program in the worthless category.
