MONTREAL, Jan. 25 /CNW Telbec/ - Scolab Inc. today announced it has
added BuzzMath for Middle School app to the education category of the
Google Apps Marketplace™, Google's category for educational Google
Apps™ products and services. Schools and districts using Google Apps
can easily add the application and work on quality math problems with
their students in less than 10 minutes.
"When a school buys a software, setup and login distribution are usually
a pain for a teacher. Thanks to the Google Apps single sign-on and
secure data sharing features, math teachers can subscribe, use, and
track BuzzMath with hundreds of students in minutes instead of hours.
To go online with unified sign-in is a major shift in this traditional
market." said Carl Malartre, CEO of Scolab Inc.
Teachers may be skeptical about using math software where the overuse of
multiple choice questions leads to student guessing, answer sharing,
and lack of engagement. BuzzMath conquers these issues with dynamic and
interactive problems that have students demonstrating their knowledge
in a variety of input styles beyond multiple choice. Furthermore,
BuzzMath randomizes the numerical values in their questions so that
students on the same page are not all working the same problem.
Students are allowed to study detailed feedback to a missed problem and
then retry it with different values, which gives students an
opportunity to demonstrate mastery.
"After eight years and approximately twenty different online software
programs, BuzzMath emerged as the program that more students prefer."
says Mr. Ashendorf, credit recovery math teacher in Newport-Mesa
District, CA. "Following an initial assessment, my students select one
out of six software programs for their educational plan. Students often
try several before a good fit is found. Yet after trying BuzzMath,
students stay with it."
"Using Google Apps, schools can now test applications at a speed never
seen before." says Tom Trang, Director of sales at Scolab Inc. "As a
result, teachers will be able to compare and select the best
educational applications for their students."
BuzzMath is available through the Google Apps Marketplace EDU Category
for a special price of $100 per school for the first 100 schools this
