Hey Neighbors!

Here is a really good math program.  It is A+ TutorSoft Inc.  I received the A+ Interactive Math, 4th Grade Math CD.  Some of the other Crew Members received the online course and of course many different grade levels were covered, so be sure to click at the link at the bottom of this review for more opinions.

I mainly used this for my daughter as a refresher type course.  I have to share with you though that right after loading this program on my new (purchased in November) computer, my husband spilt a whole glass of soda on my laptop keyboard.  I had a warranty on it, but it had to be sent in for repairs and it is just now ready for pickup.  Good thing we have more than one laptop in the family.  I quickly loaded it on another laptop and away we went.  This is perfect, because we have been able to skip around to different areas where she needs some improvement.


The CD Program is available in a standard version, or a premium version.  The standard version is $99.99 per grade level.  If you wish to purchase the premium edition it is $124.99 and includes extra features.

From the sponsor's website:

Product Description Premium Edition

This is a Premium Edition of Interactive MATH Software CD. In addition to all the great contents and features of the Standard Edition, the Premium Editionincludes the following valuable and time savings features.
1) Progress Tracking and Reporting for up to 5 Children with easy to read progress report. Easily maintain records of all completed assignments for each student in one secure place.
2) Parental Controls - Allows parents to hide/unhide the "answer keys" and solution guides from a student
3) Weekly Certificate of Accomplishment - The system tracks all assignments completed by students once parents have entered their assignments scores and generates a "Weekly Progress Report" in a very child-friendly format for student's review. This provides encouragement to your students as they see their weekly accomplishments in a very well formatted "certificate-like" format.


I used the above information from the website as I did not want to miss any important details.  I really like that we have been able to hit some areas where she needs improvement.  I have also had a couple of my older children work some of the lessons.

One great benefit is the ability to print off extra worksheets after the lesson is completed.  This way if your child needs a little more practice it is available.  And I personally like that you can print off the exams.  All of my children prefer working out the exams in front of them.

I personally did not use the lesson plan as I was mainly using the program as a refresher. but it is there to guide you through.  You as the parent do not have to be a math expert as all the answers are available for you.

The curriculum is great because it includes a visual workbook for students who learn better reading through the instructions and problems themselves, but they also have the Multimedia Lessons which show you and talk you through each lesson.  My daughter prefers the Multimedia!

I also feel that for the price the CD software courses are well worth the investment as you own them and keep going back anytime it is needed, not to mention if you have several children they can all eventually use it.
