I can provide some suggestions for middle school students. I have
successfully used these CD-ROM programs. They are all reviewed at the
Eisenhower National Clearinghouse Resource Finder. Just go to:


and type in the name of the CD or software and you will be able to read a
complete review!

DinoPark Tycoons, MECC
	"This software, designed for grades 4 through 12, allows students to
practice and build skills in estimating, reading graphs, problem solving, and

Math for the Real World, Davidson and Associates
	"CD ROM that teaches math skills based on real-world experiences."

The Logical Journey of the Zoombinis, Broderbund
	"Twelve challenging puzzles, each with four difficulty levels and a
regeneration feature so they're never solved the same way twice. Logical
thinking, grouping, categorizing, graphing, sorting, mapping and planning are
all put into play."

TesselMania, MECC
	"Students of all ages learn complex geometric concepts as they experience
art and transformational geometry working together."

KaleidoMania, Key Curriculum
	"A dynamic tool for creating symmetric designs and exploring the
mathematics of symmetry."

Some excellent software programs include:

Geometer's Sketchpad, Key Curriculum  -  http://www.keypress.com/keyhome.html
MicroWorlds, LCSI -  http://www.lcsi.ca/
Claris Works - to use for spreadsheets/graphs/charts and also the paint tools
to create tessellations!
