Shmoop Opens the Doors of Its New “Math Shack”

Share Article

Shmoop University Inc. has developed and launched a new interactive math tool which helps students enhance their skills.

If a student sees a faded sign by the side of the road that says 15 miles to the Math Shack … then help is straight ahead. That is, for those who are hunting for a product that will help them or their child make mincemeat of the SAT Math section. In other words … for a mathlete who is looking to train their brain with little pain and plenty of gain.

Shmoop, a publisher of digital curriculum and test prep, is proud to offer this new SAT Math practice tool. Math Shack features more than 200 types of problems that will hone a user’s skills in all test areas—Numbers and Operations, Algebra and Functions, Geometry and Measurement, and Statistics and Probability. The probability of Math Shack increasing one’s SAT test score? About 100 percent. And that’s rounding down.

Every problem comes with hints and detailed explanations of the answer, so that if a student didn’t know what in the world they were doing before they started the problem, they will when they’re done. There is also a tracking feature that maintains stats on a student’s progress, and shows them the areas where they may still need work. And it’s guaranteed not to laugh and point and mock the user for any wrong answers.

Math Shack is something like a dojo, a gym, or a training center where one can go to bulk up on smarts. By the time a student leaves, their brain will be absolutely ripped.

Once inside Shmoop’s regular SAT product, Math Shack is instantly accessible. A user can simply jump back and forth between the two as they pump their noggin full of formulas and variables. A student can learn a concept in Shmoop’s SAT Math test prep section, then head immediately over to Math Shack to test out their newfound knowledge on a handful of sample problems. It’s a funky little shack.

Bang, bang, bang on the door, baby.
