This single program can offer questions for "primary', 'junior' and ‘senior' levels (that is everyone). The question can be of any one type, selected from plus, minus, multiply and divide. The questions and answers are drawn to a blackboard to help make the presentation attractive.
Selecting the primary level will set up problems which involve counting two sets of ‘little men' to produce a total. The junior level provides options for the four types of arithmetic and produces questions which have whole number answers. It should be possible for most adults and older children to work these out mentally.
The senior level would require a very strong mental arithmetic ability and is designed to set problems which can be worked out using pencil and paper or even a calculator.
The answers are required to be typed in and then sent to the computer using the ‘Enter' key. This means that mistyped answers can be corrected if spotted before the ‘Enter' key is pressed. The program will allow up to two wrong trys before revealing the correct answer.
At the end of ten questions the computer will print up a 'report' showing the number of correct answers and a percentage score.
After "RENUM 40000,5" the game Rainbow Breakout may be merged with this program to provide a fun reward for getting ten out of ten.
