Publication Date: August 15, 2006
Article reviews Bridge to Algebra from Carnegie Learning, which is a math tutorial program that features practice activities that can help students master topics such as decimals, percent changes, two-step equations, and scientific notation. The author contends that the program suffers from limited graphics and a complete lack of multimedia, though an artificial intelligence component called Cognitive Tutor provides helpful hints via dialogue box. The program also features effective visual representations of abstract ideas, as well as logical instructional methods. The author contends that the program could provide valuable help for students who need extra support.
