August 27, 2004

Tonawanda, New York – August 26, 2004 – Science Kit & Boreal Laboratories, a leading provider of science educational materials in the U.S. and Canada, announced today that Quantum’s Artificial Intelligence-based Chemistry and Mathematics Tutors are now available for purchase online at the Science Kit Web site Internet subscriptions are priced per user for unlimited access during the school year. Bundled discount pricing is also available to individuals and schools when multiple Tutor modules are purchased.

“Our partnership with Quantum gives us an immediate and distinct advantage over ‘traditional’ computer-based learning products,” states Chris Adams, National Sales Manager at Science Kit. “When teachers and students see the Quantum Tutors in action, they are amazed at how easy the software is to use and how effective it is in teaching complex chemistry and mathematics concepts. That’s why we decided to offer a free 15-day trial of the Quantum Tutors. Once users try it, they’re sold.”

Ideal for student learning and teacher training, the Quantum Tutors are teacher developed and classroom tested, and proven to improve test scores by as much as 50%. ANY problem can be entered into the Tutors, making it compatible with ALL state school standards and curriculum. Students can access the Tutors wherever there is an Internet connection; in the classroom, at the library and, most importantly, at home when a teacher is not readily available. Quantum Tutors are available in modules, just like chapters in a book, and include:

Quantum Chemistry (High School and College
The Elements
Ionic Compound Formulas
Mathematics of Chemical Formulas
Equation Balancing
Oxidation Numbers
