“GraspMath is an interactive video CD series that allows students to learn mathematical topics at their own pace. The program is well designed and encompasses several pedagogical elements, from learning mathematical concepts to mastering computational skills. The program may be used “as a tutorial, a teaching supplement, or for self-study.” Certainly, in my own experience as a Two-Year College instructor, there are many occasions when it would be useful to have interactive self-learning material of this nature to help students who need an introduction to a topic, a refresher course for specific skills, or a tutorial on a subject matter that the student has either never learned or failed to fully understand. The Basic Mathematics series consists of 8 CDs, each one devoted to a different subject matter. The titles of the eight DCs are: Whole Numbers, Fractions, Decimal & Ratio and Proportion, Percent, Measurement, Geometry & Statistics and Probability, Signed Numbers and Exponents, and Introduction to Algebra . . .”

“This 8 CD set is a valuable addition to any collection of mathematics learning materials. Students who wish to review a topic, or who missed an instructor’s class on a specific topic, can readily turn to this set of CDs for a self-paced introduction or review. The combination of live instruction with pre-assessment materials, objective summaries, and workbooks makes GraspMath a well-conceived and effective resource for students and instructors.”

“As a busy teacher, I don’t have the time to learn how to use the many resources that are available. I was so pleased to find this product because all I had to do was insert the CD into my computer, and it began playing. This allowed me to focus my attention on teaching the students math, not having to learn a new program. It was so easy to use!”

"It is the best interactive video math series that I have seen, and I’ve been looking for over two years! Working with adult learners, it is so hard to find material that is not insulting to their intelligence. GraspMath's Basic Mathematics Interactive Video Tutor presents the material in such a way that it encourages adults to learn and enjoy the lessons, without teaching 'down' to them. Students love the series and have been fighting over them!"

“I searched for over a year, and settled on the Elayn Martin-Gay video Series from Summit Interactive. I think these are the best tapes on the market. I believe the reason why these are so popular is that they are direct and to the point, they show the students how to do problems just like ones from their homework. Elayn has a real camera presence as well, and has a very non-threatening style.”

“The tapes are the basic source of instruction for students taking remediation through a math lab in the learning center. Also the tapes are used as supplemental to classroom instruction for students in a traditional math course through the math department. If high usage and positive feedback from students are valid indictors, then we certainly made the correct choice. The material is not only cost effective, but more importantly, of exceptional quality with regard to content and presentation.”

"Here is a rare case of a program setting out to accomplish a certain goal, then reaching it exactly. This series will be an invaluable adjunct to mathematics instruction at all levels."

"When you consider the cost of having a student tutored for a year, the tapes are reasonably priced. For the visually-minded student, this program is a plus. For the timid math student, this program is a plus. For any math student, this program is a plus."

"Since mathematics is a fluid process, one step flowing into the next, full-motion video works better than computers in allowing the student to grasp a mathematical concept or algorithm."

"I have reviewed the sample videos and have found them to be the most exemplary presentation I have seen in a long time. Simply speaking: THEY ARE OUTSTANDING! Your staff of educators has delivered a product to education that will raise the math skills of students everywhere and will bring about proficient young people demonstrating life-long learning. I am simply impressed with the classroom approach, the computer graphics and so much more."

“The instruction on each tape is clearly presented using universally accepted techniques. The tapes have been well received, so much so that the library staff had to purchase more equipment to handle the increased use of their facilities. The students tell me they like the tapes for their clear and precise instruction. Most importantly they have the privacy which encourages them to get help without feeling embarrassed. They also appreciate every step being shown in a skill that unfortunately they don't always get from their instructor. After realizing the success of the tapes, we purchased the complete set. I, for one, am very happy with your products and wanted you to know.”

"These videos are the finest teaching tools I have ever used! I wish I had them 25 years ago! Your videos are comprehensive, effective and appealing to kids. They hold the interest of children and the student participation is a plus!"
