Astro Algebra Provides a Strong Foundation for
Algebra Success!
Astro Algebra teaches you the concepts and problemsolving skills you need
to master algebra basics and build math confidence! Four expert crew members
help you rocket through each stage in the problemsolving process:
understanding, strategizing, calculating and checking your work. You'll learn
how to graph functions, translate word problems into mathematical expressions
and represent algebraic equations using the program's Virtual Manipulatives.
Hundreds of problems and dozens of intergalactic missions provide you with a
solid foundation for success in algebra and beyond. We're so sure of this, we
fully guarantee your satisfaction!
In Astro Algebra, your child will master these important 7th, 8th & 9th
grade math topics:
 Graph points, functions, equations and inequalities on a number line or
coordinate plane
 Use ratios, proportions and percents to solve problems. Plus, whole
numbers, decimals, fractions, integers and rational numbers.
 Evaluate expressions using order of operations
 Define mathematical relationships using expressions, equations,
inequalities, functions and graphs
 Understand word problems and how to use variables and graphs
 Discover and explore the language of algebra
FREE video for parents included on CDROM! In Dear Parents, Edmark's
Donna Stanger, a teacher for 20 years, shares thoughts about the role you can
play in helping your child successfully learn math.
Special Alert: Alien Friends in Trouble! Algebra to
the Rescue!
The Astro Algebra Alliance is counting on you! Accept the challenge to
captain the spaceship Algebra Centauri and answer distress signals from across
the galaxy.

Play with the Basic Building Blocks of Algebra You understand
equations better when you can build them with VariaBlox. Manipulate the Blox to
combine like terms, substitute or solve for a variable and multiply and factor
simple algebraic expressions. An alert warns you when your equation is out of
balance! 
Capture Satellites, Meteoroids and Unusual OuterSpace Treasures
Drag objects into the Cargo Bay to sort them and solve a mathematical
problem. Use the special sorting bins for translating between fractions,
decimals and percents and identifying equivalent rational numbers or
exponential expressions. The Proportion Tool can help you solve scale factor,
equivalent ratio, proportion and percent problems. 


Represent Multiple Points and Graphs of Linear Equations and
Inequalities Use the Grapher Station to solve problems and complete
missions by identifying slopes and intercepts and solving systems of equations
and inequalities. In some missions, a Number Line replaces the coordinate grid
and you can graph fractions, decimals, expressions and inequalities. 
Special Features! The math fun in Astro Algebra takes place in two
modes, OnDuty Mode and OffDuty Mode. You begin the program in OnDuty Mode,
where you are directed through missions. You can also go into OffDuty Mode at
any time in order to freely explore the tools and stations at your own pace,
view trophies or play Equation of Mystery in the Cargo Bay. Surf the AstroNet,
a simulated universewide Internet* that contains data on math topics and
terms. Learn about important algebra concepts before or during a mission. Use
the Calculator to evaluate functions, compute solutions and create tables of
values. 


Astro Algebra's Grow Slide automatically records your progress and
adjusts to guide your learning. The activities in Astro Algebra offer dozens of
math topics and hundreds of problems in 7th, 8th and 9th grade algebra. As you
learn and progress, the Grow Slide advances, offering more challenging
problems. Students. parents or teachers can also set the difficulty of each
activity or choose a specific topic related to schoolwork.
