Is there a program that allows students to do math computation on the computer rather than on paper?

Computer-aided instruction has been shown to be an effective tool for mathematics instruction, and there are many math software products on the market. Children who find it difficult to write math problems legibly or accurately can benefit from computer-based programs that allow them to focus on calculating and problem solving. Some software programs have a game-like format, others allow a student to solve teacher-made problems. The key is to select programs that are rich in content as well as motivational for your student. 10 Tips for Software Selection for Math Instruction may assist you in making an appropriate product selection.
