BuzzMath for Middle School is among the first apps in the newly launched education category of Google Apps Marketplace

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 school year.
