Click on an alphabet range above to read the math product description and vendor contact information.  Check the list below for math software titles.

Note:

Grade levels in a vendor's product description are sometimes indicated specifically with numbers (e.g., grades 1-12), or with words such as elementary, middle, high school, "and up" or "to adult".  An age range might be provided instead of a grade level.

Sometimes no grade level is indicated, particularly if a product is for a specific subject (e.g., algebra, geometry, calculus, etc.).

Some products are developed only for preparation for standardized testing.  Some states give grade level exams, high school exit exams, or end of course exams.  There are standardized college entrance exams or the high school equivalency exam.  A product might be designed to accommodate any or all of those and no grade level is promoted in the product description.

Some vendors design their products to be used in one state only or several states.  What you get in terms of a grade level depends on the state you select.

Bottom line: A particular grade band or age range is only a guide; best judgment is needed when selecting products, as some might also be used for other than their intended purpose (e.g., acceleration or remediation).

Product Effectiveness Research

Professor: Pedagogy comes first in selecting software

Mathematica Policy Research, Inc. and SRI International conducted a three-year study that the U.S. Department of Education requested in 2003 to determine the effectiveness of certain math and reading products on raising student achievement.

On April 4, 2007, the U.S. Department of Education released its report for Congress, Effectiveness of Reading and Mathematics Software Products: Findings from the First Student Cohort. It received immediate reaction from leaders around the country concerned about the effectiveness of technology in education and results of this study.  A key finding noted by Mathematica Policy Research, Inc. indicated, "Test scores were not significantly higher in classrooms using the reading and mathematics software products than those in control classrooms. In each of the four groups of products-reading in first grade and in fourth grade, mathematics in sixth grade, and high school algebra-the evaluation found no significant differences in student achievement between the classrooms that used the technology products and classrooms that did not."  Sixth grade math products included Larson Pre-Algebra, Plato's Achieve Now, and iLearn Math.  Algebra products included Cognitive Tutor Algebra, Plato Algebra, and Larson Algebra.  Read this full report: https://ies.ed.gov/ncee/pubs/20074005/

Note per a news release: In 2012 PLATO Learning changed it name to Edmentum.  PLATO courseware remains a key brand.

The Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA), the principal association representing the software and digital content industries, is conscious of contributing research on product effectiveness. The SIIA released a report on May 13, 2010, Conducting and Reporting Product Evaluation Research: Guidelines and Considerations for Educational Technology Publishers and Developers," which provides 22 standards of research best practices for publishers and developers of educational software and other instructional technologies.  The guidelines do not endorse use of a particular research methodology and can also benefit school leaders who select and implement technology-based products and services, according to SIIA's media release at that time.
