New Series from Modality and Pearson Brings Algebra Learning to iPhone™ and iPod touch®

Boston, M.A.—July 22, 2009—Pearson Education and Modality, Inc. today announced the AlgebraPrep: Factoring application is available on the App Store. This iPhone™ and iPod touch® app, comprised of practice tests and video tutorials by the award-winning instructor and bestselling author Elayn Martin-Gay, is designed to provide supplemental help for students in or out of class.

“Every student can succeed in mathematics with the right learning tools,” says Martin-Gay. “I am confident that these AlgebraPrep applications for iPhone and iPod touch will help students in new ways.”

Each app in the AlgebraPrep series focuses on a key algebra topic and features a “Practice Test” to help students build skills and gain confidence. The revolutionary capabilities of iPhone and iPod touch enable students to access a variety of learning content just by tapping the device screen. Questions in the “Practice Test” provide immediate feedback to the user in the form of quick tips and step-by-step video solutions from Elayn Martin-Gay.

After completing the “Practice Test,” students move onto the “Mini-Tests,” to apply what they’ve learned in a more challenging framework. Each Mini-Test is designed to take 10 minutes or less to complete, in order to encourage valuable math review even in small windows of time.

AlgebraPrep: Factoring is available for $2.99 from Apple’s App Store on iPhone and iPod touch or at
