The PLATO Learning Environment is online educational software that includes an algebra component. The software is part of the Plato Courseware system developed and sold by Edmentum.
Plato Courseware is not a school in itself. It is software sold to schools for their use in developing virtual courses for students. Students may access their courses through the PLATO Learning Environment. A set of middle school math courses is sold that covers pre-algebra, algebra and consumer mathematics. The Plato Courseware software may also be purchased by parents who home-school their children through co-op organizations that buy a license to distribute the software.
