I was searching for months for a piece of software that would help me improve my Algebra skills. My solution was the Algebra Professor, and now I can tell you how it feels to be an A student.
I am a parent of an 8th grader:The software itself works amazingly well - just enter an algebraic equation and it will show you step by step how to solve and offer clear, brief explanations, invaluable for checking homework or reviewing a poorly understood concept. The practice test with printable answer key is a great self check with a seemingly endless supply of non-repeating questions. Just keep taking the tests until you get them all right = an A+ in math.
I like the ability to show all, some, or none of the steps. Sometimes I need to cross reference my work, and other times I just need to check the solution. I also like how an explanation can be shown for each step. That helps learn the functions of each different method for solving.
We are still both novices with the program, but have seen its benefits nonetheless.
I recommend the Algebra Professor to students who need help with fractions, equations and algebra. The program is a great tool! Not only does it give you the answers but it also shows you how and why you come up with those answers. I've shown my students how to use the program during some of our lessons. A couple of them even bought the program to help them out with their algebra homework.
Students struggling with all kinds of algebra problems find out that our software is a life-saver. Here are the search phrases that today's Algebra Buster customers have used to find our site. Can you find yours among them?
