At The Circus
By Sumlock

Published in Home Computing Weekly #16

Based on a circus theme, this game is designed for young children from about four to seven years old and introduces them to basic maths.

Inside the circus tent is a high wire act, and the aim is to count the number of acrobats. If the correct answer is entered, the number of performers changes - otherwise the display is repeated until the child gets it right.

Occasionally the men jump off the wire and after bouncing in a safety net form a human pyramid to demonstrate the difference between tens and units.

The program includes some basic addition and subtraction. and the speed of operation can be altered to suit the childâs ability. A score card is kept of correct answers.

Parental supervision will be needed, at least to set up the programs.
