Softmath announces New Release of Algebrator™ Mathematics Software

Release 5.0 is a comprehensive educational environment for mathematics

designed to help students from pre-algebra to pre-calculus levels

SAN ANTONIO April 27th, 2010 - Softmath today announced availability of the latest version of its Algebrator™ software. Algebrator 5.0 is a mathematics tutoring software program which solves and explains a wide range of problems entered by users of the program. Version 5.0 is equally suitable for grade school students, who can see basic arithmetic operations broken down to elementary steps, as well as for college students who need to brush up on trigonometry and statistics before taking a calculus class.

Step-by-step solutions provided by Algebrator are virtually indistinguishable from the solutions given by the math teacher, making the software an ideal 24/7 math tutor. The software works seamlessly on both Windows and MAC based PCs.

In addition to greatly expanding the covered math areas, Algebrator can now export its solution process to MathML – a standard format used for displaying mathematics on the web. In close collaboration with InftyReader Group, Inc., Softmath has developed a process that makes Algebrator's benefits available to students with vision impairment.

"Softmath is making a concerted effort to make our software available to all segments of student populations. By teaming up with InftyReader Group, a company that markets an Optical Character Recognition (OCR) application that recognizes and translates scientific documents into LaTeX and MathML, we hope to continue our strong tradition of innovation", said Neven Jurkovic, Ph.D., president of Softmath.

"It's been rewarding, working with Dr. Jurkovic, in support of helping to level the math playing field for students with print disabilities" said CEO of InftyReader Group, Inc. and president of IDEAL Group, Inc.

In another effort to reach a traditionally underserved student population, Softmath will be releasing Algebrator 5.0 in both English and Spanish.
