Description: The basic module of Math Stars Plus challenges students to complete all fact groups up to a selectable number. As each function (+ - x /) is successfully completed, the student earns a STAR. The program records every problem the student attempts and can be set to use the student's previous data in selecting new problems.
In addition, Math Stars Plus includes 6 fun but challenging math games. The games range in difficulty from fairly easy to quite challenging even for advanced high school players. Students compete against their own best time or highest score in each game. The PLUS games are not counted in the student's quest to complete the facts for each function.
User selectable options include: time limit per question, number of problems, random or fixed numbers, allow negatives, vertical or horizontal display, and highest number allowed. Problems can be created by the program based upon the student's previous efforts or truly at random. Users can select addition, subtraction, multiplication, or division functions or determine which of those functions will be randomly selected by the computer. Its many options make this program adaptable for students of all ages. Problems can also be spoken aloud by the computer voice for the visually challenged.
