WICAT SET TO RELEASE NEW TEACHER TOOLS FOR MATH

 WICAT SET TO RELEASE NEW TEACHER TOOLS FOR MATH
 OREM, Utah, June 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Wicat Systems Inc.


(NASDAQ: WCAT) announced today that it is releasing three new software products specifically designed to help math teachers better focus instruction and practice on student skill deficiencies.
 Wicat Math Toolkit lets teachers create their own on-line math exercises and tests without the need for programming skills. Exercises can address a wide range of kindergarten through eighth grade objectives involving basic facts and multi-digit whole numbers. These new on-line exercises can be integrated with other on-line math curriculum and assignments using Wicat's AIMS management software.
 Exam-in-a-Can Plus(R), developed by ips Publishing (Westlake Village, Calif.) and sold by Wicat under a recently announced marketing agreement, is a powerful algorithm-driven mathematics test and worksheet generator. Teachers can use Exam-in-a-Can Plus to create drill and practice worksheets, quizzes, practice tests, or exams.
 Exam-in-a-Can Plus automatically produces student answer sheets and answer keys. The product's algorithm approach lets teachers select objectives and then generate multiple worksheets or tests with different problems that address these same objectives. Wicat will offer nine versions of Exam-in-a-Can Plus, addressing objectives from basic math facts through high school calculus.
 "With Math Toolkit and Exam-in-a-Can Plus, teachers can target individual areas of weakness with extended practice and assessment," said Jean Herre, Wicat's assistant director for mathematics product development. "And this can be done either on-line with Math Toolkit or in printed homework and quizzes with Exam-in-a-Can Plus."
 Wicat is also releasing a set of computer math games. Mental Math(TM), developed by the Waterford Institute (Provo, Utah) and sold by Wicat, features 15 different types of math games designed to give students practice solving basic math problems in their heads under a limited time constraint. Activities in Mental Math feature high- resolution color graphics, engaging themes, and amusing animations to hold student attention while they learn to do basic computations quickly and accurately.
 Activities in all three math teacher tools comply with appropriate National Council of Teaching Mathematics (NCTM) curriculum standards.
 Exam-in-a-Can Plus and Mental Math will be released at the end of June. Math Toolkit is expected to be released in early August.
 Wicat Systems 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.
