WICAT RELEASES NEW SPANISH MATH PRODUCT FOR BILINGUAL EDUCATION

WICAT RELEASES NEW SPANISH MATH PRODUCT FOR BILINGUAL EDUCATION
 OREM, Utah, May 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Wicat (NASDAQ: WCAT) today released a new courseware package for bilingual education programs. Wicat Spanish Math I, available immediately, will provide native- language math instruction for students in this nation's rapidly growing Hispanic population.
 The course covers math instructional objectives at grade levels kindergarten through fourth grade. It teaches students math in a rich multimedia environment which utilizes Spanish audio, high-resolution color graphics, and animation to motivate students and to model and explain difficult or abstract math concepts.
 Wicat Spanish Math I is the first product to be released as part of Wicat's on-going bilingual education development efforts. Additional products are currently under development.
 "With Wicat Spanish Math I and future Wicat Spanish courses, educators can continue student educational development while students simultaneously work at mastering English," commented Shirley Arnett, Wicat's director of Spanish courseware development. "Without such products, educators must stop a student's development in math, writing, reading, etc. while that student becomes more proficient in English."
 Wicat Spanish Math I supports both process and content standards recently set by the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM). Wicat is also developing additional products as part of its bilingual education curriculum. These products include additional math courses and a bilingual literacy product.
 Wicat Systems Inc. is a world leader in technology-based education and provides products and services to significantly improve learning in schools and industry. Wicat stock is traded in the NASDAQ market under the symbol WCAT.
