At Bentz Test Laboratory, we have some "math brains" and some "not so math brains".  So, Math 911 had instant appeal (I wish I had some Math 911 when I was first learning Algebra!!)
My tester was our main math mastermind.  I figured he was the most qualified to accurately review a program teaching algebra and upper level mathematics!

Here are his thoughts:
  • Easy to do with short lessons
  • He likes that you always have to get the solution correct to get the credit and advance (he's a "rule follower"...I however would like to get credit for wrong algebra would have made it easier for me to get through algebra in high school!)
  • Doesn't really teach any of the concepts, it more of a review/practice application.
  • Seems a bit "old school" with the graphics and design - teenagers today have more sophisticated tastes in digital products! (see some screen shots to see for yourself...)

My Thoughts:
  • An affordable algebra & upper level math supplement!
  • The Free - Laugh with Math Cartoon Math Book (I was chuckling but, my tester...didn't get it.  I told you, he's so math brained he can't laugh at it!)  Check it out - you'll love it!
  • Great customer service!
  • Another tool in my math toolbox, you'll want one too!
