EMTask - math test authoring software

EMTeachline Mathematics Software - interactive math problem solving, test authoring

EMTask was specifically designed to address the needs of math teachers - from elementary school through high school - who want a reliable cost-effective tool for preparation of tests, quizzes, exams and homeworks, and for above-average students who want to study for and take tests. EMTask offers an infinite number of math problems with answers and solutions, together with a set of test preparation options. A difficulty scale for each task - 11 complexity levels - will assist teachers in a class of mixed ability students. To develop a test, you have to specify topics and a level of test complexity - that's all. The software itself will select the corresponding examples for you. Unwanted examples can be replaced at once. For more demanding teachers the software offers a way to develop math tests manually, by visual selection of each example. When you save your test, the software itself generates up to 30 similar test variants. All math tests with or without the solutions can be printed out. EMTask is a time-saving solution for math teachers!

The software modules are organized by subject. Covered subject areas are Arithmetic, Pre-Algebra, Algebra I and II, Trigonometry and Hyperbolic Trigonometry. The trial version of EMTask can be downloaded from this site. Alternatively, you can try some options online.

EMTEACHLINE MATH TEST AUTHORING SOFTWARE - TIME-SAVING & COST-EFFECTIVE SOLUTION FOR MATH TEACHERS

Press release

ABSTRACT. EMTeachline Software has released a PC-based test authoring mathematics software package that offers a comprehensive set of test authoring tools for math teachers and a large repository of math problems in arithmetic, pre-algebra, algebra, precalculus, trigonometry and hyperbolic trigonometry, with answers and solutions. Authoring options enable teachers to select math problems by topic, difficulty level and solution method, create printable math tests, quizzes, exams and homeworks of varied complexity and develop numerous similar variants around each constructed test. The software is suitable for elementary, middle and high school use.

1. MATH SOFTWARE OVERVIEW

Teaching problem solving skills in math requires a large amount of training in solving math problems. The EMTeachline Math Test Authoring Software EMTask helps math teachers in the organization of the teaching and learning process. Provide each student in your class with an individual practice test!

The software modules are organized by subject. Each module offers hundreds of math problem types, with dozens of similar problems within one type. Math problems of 11 levels of complexity are presented in a logical sequence from basic to advanced. All problems are solved in detail.

A comprehensive set of test authoring options makes preparation of math tests, quizzes, homeworks and exams an easy and creative work. With thousands of math problems at hands, teachers do not have to search for fresh examples. They can select math problems by complexity level, solution method and type of task; develop customizable math tests of varied complexity in a minute and generate up to 30 similar variants around each constructed test. All developed materials with or without the solutions can be printed out or stored in a file and re-used. A set of variant tests is ready for students to review and reinforce their math skills.

2. MATH SKILLS COVERED

Arithmetic and Pre-Algebra: Operations: multiplication, division, addition, subtraction. Fractions, powers. Numeric expressions: estimation, equivalencies, problem-solving. Solving arithmetic problems using algebraic formulas.

Algebra: Polynomial and fractional rational expressions: transformation, simplification, evaluation. Solution of linear, quadratic, cubic, biquadratic, reciprocal and fractional algebraic equations and inequalities. Proofs of algebraic identities. Solution methods: Substitution, factoring, grouping, Bezout theorem, formulas of short multiplication, method of intervals and more.

Trigonometry and Hyperbolic Trigonometry: trigonometric and hyperbolic functions, arcus functions. Trigonometric and hyperbolic expressions: transformation, simplification, evaluation. Solution of trigonometric and hyperbolic equations. Proofs of trigonometric and hyperbolic identities. Solution methods: universal substitution, sum, product and addition of trigonometric functions, power reduction, multiple argument, shift of argument and more.

3. USER OPTIONS

For math students: You can review solutions of math problems step by step and try to solve similar math problems on your own.

For math teachers: You can use an extensive bank of math problems; arrange problems by topic, complexity level, solution method and type of task; compile math tests, quizzes, homeworks and exams of varied complexity; generate numerous similar variant math tests around a constructed example. You can use dozens of ready variant tests.


Preparation of tests, variant tests and other methodical materials

To prepare various tests, exams, revision exercises and homeworks, math teachers have to either compose examples themselves - which is a long story - or use the existing task-books - which is slow and costly. The EMTeachline mathematics software provides an ideal cost-effective help in these areas...

How does the EMTeachline mathematics software help math teachers?

Once upon a time, when I was a math teacher I knew little about the world of training programs and was extremely skeptical about training potentials of mathematics software. Although I still firmly believe that no program can replace a good math teacher, I am positive that training programs can help math teachers a lot in the following areas...

Ordinary task-books versus training software

Apart from standard schoolbooks that are selected by a teacher and are mandatory for a student, many people have to buy additional task-books and tutorials. Prior to visiting a book store, consider new opportunities opened by the world of training software...

How many math examples should contain an ideal software?

There are mathematics programs with no single example at all and there are programs with huge repositories of math examples. Both program types have their advantages and disadvantages...

Criteria for assessing the teaching capabilities of training software

Any training program is a tool designed to build specific knowledge and a suit of practical math skills. It would be useful to have some quantitative and qualitative parameters reflecting the training capabilities of software...
