Tom Snyder Productions has announced that two of its software programs will be included in the recently launched Apple Digital Learning Series, a collection of value-priced curriculum solutions designed to increase achievement in key curriculum areas. Each Apple Digital Learning Series consists of research-based educational software and tools created by leading education developers and recommended by educators, according to the announcement. Tom Snyder's GO Solve Word Problems and The Graph Club will be included in the Elementary Math package.

The company also announced that it will release the new Universal versions of GO Solve Word Problems and The Graph Club that will run natively on Apple's Intel-based Macs.

The Tom Snyder Productions programs focus on critical elementary math concepts. GO Solve Word Problems teaches students to become better problem solvers by showing them how to recognize mathematical situations in word problems, comprehend problems with the aid of graphic organizers, and give students ways to solve problems with addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division, the announcement states. Graph Club is a software tool for creating, exploring, interpreting, and printing graphs. The program's hands-on environment is intended to help young students make the transition from graphing with manipulatives to graphing in the abstract.
