If adults hate math, then you can just imagine the experiences of kids who are still being introduced to its concepts. The question then is: Why do kids hate math? Keep in mind that the disdain for the subject often starts in childhood. First, math is not something that can be done on a passive and impulsive manner such as learning the English language in an environment where it is the first language. Kids must put in plenty of time, effort and energy into learning math concepts, developing the skills for solving math problems, and advancing said skills to the next level. In most kids, concentration and focus are not their strongest suits especially with technology (i.e., video games) at hand. The good news is that kids affinity for video games can also be harnessed for their own good via cool math games but more on that later.
Teachers on their part find the program valuable as the math tests are scored and stored by the computer for evaluation of progress. The process is also simple because after taking the test, a personalized score sheet is printed along with an evaluation of topics requiring further study. The student can then return to the body of the program and practice those sections which were identified as weak areas. The use of the tests is flexible as the student may take Test A as a pre test and Test B as a post test or Test A may be used for one student and Test B for another. As a whole, a math software is a modern blessing for both learners and teachers who would enjoy studying the numbers instead of dreading them.
For unfamiliar words, I would turn to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary online, to the Oxford Dictionary online, or to a general "word-of-the-day" e-mail list for which one can sign up to get daily messages with new vocabulary. Not even a native speaker will likely know all of the words that one receives in the e-mails of words each day. Students should pay close attention to the etymologies of words. An etymology is an explanation of where a word came from and possibly how it changed in both form and sound over a long period of time. The study of the origins of words makes a challenging language like English all the more fun because it links the language to historical origins and to various cultures.
