Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) December 2, 2004 -
Parents with mathematically challenged teenagers about to face the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) can now enroll their children in an affordable, on-line SAT mathematics program designed to help students develop a mastery of the concepts needed to pass the math portion of the SAT. The innovative program is getting rave reviews from students, parents, and academics alike.
XLMath.com, the outgrowth of years of research and development, offers students the means to not only reinforce their understanding of key math concepts, more importantly, it offers students having difficulties with math the means to identify and overcome their mathematical shortcomings.
While traditional math prep courses offer students a series of multiple choice questions that enable them to test their knowledge of key mathematical concepts, XLMath prompts students to revisit each and every concept until it is mastered.
Here is a simple example. Prompted to provide the next number in the following series: 4, 7, 11, 16, the student is given five possible choices: A. 21, B. 22, C. 23, D. 24, and E. 25. The correct answer as described in the detailed solution strategy is 22. If the student answers incorrectly, he/she is then asked a slightly modified version of the question, e.g., provide the next number in the series 3, 8, 16, 23 along with a new set of answer choices.
The site provides over 10,000 problem permutations, allowing students to repeat a virtually unlimited number of variations of the same problem so they can eventually overcome their "blind spots". Visitors to the site are invited see the interactive system in action before they enroll.
As the individual student works through XLMath, the siteÂs server not only keeps track of scores and the percent of problems answered correctly, it keeps track of the time spent solving each problem so each student can concentrate on those concepts posing the greatest difficulty. Once students have identified and overcome conceptual problem areas, they can put their skills to test in real time, taking a number of simulated 25 minute, 20-question exams that simulate testing time constraints.
The company offers three affordable programs. The cram course, designed for students who are looking for an interactive tool they can use to reinforce what they already know, costs $29.95 and lasts for 30 days. The mathematically challenged can take advantage of two extended programs at slightly higher cost. An additional $10 extends the Âdrill and killÂ program to three months; the All-Star program for $49.95 provides user access for nine months.
Parents interested in enrolling their children in the companyÂs program are encouraged to visit the XLMathÂs web site to give it a test drive. Those interested in making direct inquiries can email XLMathÂs administration team using the hyperlink found in the right hand column or call (310) 500-2234. Unlike so many SAT prep sites, XLmath specializes in SAT math preparation and only SAT math preparation.
