Infinite Pre-Algebra is a self-explanatory application that helps both students and teachers create mathematical worksheets with single or multiple choice questions that cover almost all pre-algebra topics.
How it works
The interface is well-organized and structured allowing you easy access to a list of pre-algebra topics that includes decimals, whole numbers, fractions, integers, equations, exponents, ratios and polynomials just to name a few. You can scroll down the list in order to find the topic which you prefer, then double-click and begin creating your assignment paper in the dedicated pop-up window. A quicker alternative is to enter the name of the topic in the text box that is above this list.
You have different options at your disposal that allow you to customize questions, namely set the difficulty degree from easy up to hard, change your question types from single to multiple choice answers, resize numbers, use common factors and increase the level of complexity. When you have finished editing your questions, you can choose to reveal the answers. Plus, you won’t get bored practicing and learning algebra because the applications enables you to regenerate each question.
At any time you can change your assignment’s heading or fine-tune the space between each question as to give the page a more appealing and legible appearance.
Once you scale an assignment by decreasing or increasing the number of questions, you also regenerate it, so you can use this option to permanently update your quizzes. Merge assignments to create test papers, review sheets and quizzes, that can be printed or saved on your hard drive.
Among other things, you can attach relevant graphs to your hand-made projects. These graphs can be designed using the classic x and y axes with values assigned in decimal, degrees or radians forms.
To sum things up, Infinite Pre-Algebra is a software tool that can make you understand algebra without a teacher and make your learning experience more fun.
Once you have created an assignment, you can regenerate all of its questions with a single click. The new questions will conform to the same parameters as the original questions, but they will be completely new. This feature is at the heart of our software and is what makes it so powerful: you choose the properties of the questions, not the questions themselves. When a question is replaced, you get a new one that is similar to the original question. How it works.
You can regenerate entire assignments, particular question groups, or individual questions.
Respace the entire assignment to the desired length with one click. Easily give your students enough room to show their work by increasing the spacing. Or you can save paper by decreasing the spacing.
Spacing can also be controlled manually.
Very useful as a teaching aid when used in combination with an LCD projector or other display system. One to four questions at a time are shown on the screen.
Use this feature while you teach. Prepare your examples with the software, and then use a projector to display the questions on the board. This saves time during planning and during the lesson, and it makes it very easy to present long questions or questions with graphs and diagrams.
With one question displayed, you can:
Change the zoom level — so students in the back can read it
Draw lines beside the question to help you organize your work if you solve the question
Jump to another question — useful while reviewing homework
Reveal the answer
Show / hide the question number and the directions.
Print multiple versions of an assignment. You control how each new version is created: scramble the choices, scramble the questions, or make completely new questions. You can also save each new version after it is created. Print multiple version.
Proportionally increase or decrease the number of questions in the assignment. This is very useful when planning a lesson. You can create a few questions to use as examples, and then scale up the number of question to create a homework assignment. The questions on the homework will be completely new, yet follow \
precisely from the lesson–and you don’t need to design the questions again.
Export questions as bitmap images and paste them into your favorite word processing software. Questions created with our products can be added to existing assignments you have created with other programs. Or you can freshen old assignments by replacing old questions with new ones.
All questions are available for export.
Good Multiple-Choice Questions
Every question you create can be toggled between free-response and multiple-choice format. Multiple-choice questions come with smart, potentially misleading choices. Some are based on common mistakes students make while others are just random but near the correct answer.
You control the number of choices each question has, from two to five.
Merge two or more assignments into one. Easily create quizzes, tests, and reviews by merging the assignments from the unit and then scaling the total to an appropriate length. The questions will be new while following exactly from what you taught. Merge
Diagrams Drawn to Scale
Diagrams are all accurately drawn, except if the answer would be given away. If an angle is labeled as 30°, then it really is 30°. If a triangle’s sides are labeled 3, 4, and 5, then its lengths truly are in a 3:4:5 ratio. Seeing accurate diagrams helps students gain an intuitive understanding of angles and measurements.
When you print an assignment, you choose how the answers are reported:
On an answer sheet
On an answer sheet with just the odds
In context (next to or within the question)
No answer sheet
Graphing and Graph Paper Utility
Supplement your lessons with high-quality graphs and graph paper of any size. Each graph can have zero to two functions graphed on it. Graphs can be of any logical and physical size. You can also tile graphs across the page to maximize your paper use.
Custom Directions and Custom Questions
Enter your own directions to create new types of problems. Shown on the left was a standard order of operations question that has been modified to be more analytical. You can alter the directions on any question type.
From time to time, you will need to enter your own question. That’s what custom questions are for. They can be either free response or multiple-choice and can contain math formatted text (equations, expressions, etc).
Custom Questions and Directions
Modify automatic questions Modify Automatically-Generated Questions
Most automatically-generated questions can be modified manually. If there is a choice you don’t like, you can change it. If you wish a question was slightly different, you can change it.
Paper Size and Margins
Print assignments on any sized paper that your printer supports. If you decide to print an assignment on legal-sized paper, no problem. The questions will automatically be repositioned for you–no cutting and pasting the assignment back together just to use a different paper size. You also have control over the margins, page numbering, and paper orientation.
