Product Description:

This software, now packaged in a USB flash drive format,contains a year's worth of lessons in consumer mathematics. The Switched-On Schoolhouse program creates an interactive learning environment by combining written instruction with video clips, audio clips, animation, and vocabulary games (that's right, even in math it's important to learn the appropriate vocabulary). Like other Switched-On Schoolhouse subjects, this computer-based course is NOT intended for self-study. Personal instruction is required. This software is not intended to replace the teacher, but to free up some of the teacher's time by taking care of administrative tasks such as grading and writing lesson plans.

This course consists of the following ten units: basic math review, personal finance, statistics, taxes & insurance, banking & credit goods, purchase & sale of goods, leisure & travel & retirement, job-related services, and consumer math review. Each unit contains approx. twenty lessons, two to five quizzes, and one unit test. Once the teacher sets up the student calendar, lesson plans are automatically generated by evenly spreading the course work over the total number of school days. Up to five students can be registered on this software, and access for each student is password protected.

One feature I really enjoyed using was the message posting system. Before each new lesson, the teacher can skim the material and post hints or explanations to potentially confusing sections. During the lesson, the student can read these messages and post his or her own comments and questions (which is really useful if the teacher is not on-hand to answer questions when the lesson is actually completed). The more familiar the teacher is with the course content, the easier it will be to answer student questions, especially since answer keys, but not solutions, are provided. I would consider this elective a high school level course. System requirements: Windows 7/ Windows 8 & 8.1 / Windows 10; printer recommended. - Anh
