Hotmath.com Adds Math Instant Messaging Feature For Online Collaboration on Math Homework

SAN FRANCISCO—(BUSINESS WIRE)—October 18, 2007— Hotmath, Inc. has added a new Math Instant Messaging feature to its award-winning web site, www.hotmath.com. The leader in online math homework help, Hotmath.com displays hint-step explanations for the actual, odd-numbered homework problems used in more than 200 math textbooks used in U.S. middle schools, high schools, and colleges. Math Instant Messaging allows students to study together in real time over the Internet.

The first U.S. education web site known to have embedded instant messaging technology, Hotmath's Math Instant Messaging allows students to collaborate on homework assignments online. Students use a pointer and "texting" while viewing Hotmath hint-step explanations of textbook homework problems. They can communicate via instant messaging and a shared pointer to move through teacher-prepared problem explanations.

"Starting in November, students who need help on math homework can turn to their friends, without having to be in the same location," said Chuck Grant, Hotmath co-founder and a former mathematics teacher. "We hear news every day about the preferences of tweens and teens to communicate with instant messaging. Yet, to my knowledge, no other U.S. education company has taken this powerful communications tool and integrated it with instructional content. Now students can work on math problems together in a cyber study hall."

The guided context of Hotmath for homework discussions helps students work through homework problems at a faster rate. Students move a pointer to a location in a troublesome hint or step, and then use a text-window to ask or answer a question.

Founded in 2000 by math educators, Hotmath.com is the leader in online math homework help, serving thousands of schools and millions of students throughout the U.S. Hotmath.com provides step-by-step help with hints for the actual odd-numbered homework problems in math textbooks. The company also offers practice tests for state exit exams, as well as Pre-Algebra, Algebra 1, and Algebra 2. Parents may subscribe to Hotmath.com at a cost of $49 for 12 months. Hotmath is a full-service math help resource. Visit www.hotmath.com.

    Wow, I really thought this was going to be my answer to my private re-studying of Algebra of more than fifty years ago but then I saw that it was a pay for knowledge site, it stopped me dead in my tracks when filling out the join up form. In my retirement years I can only handle so many things requiring payments. Too bad, but I do have some more that will do almost what this site can do.
