Planet Mathematicus

THIS MULTI-LEVEL maths test program is aimed at the 7-10- year-olds and allows addition and subtraction in the bands 0- 10, 0-20 and 0-1000. Multiplication or division can also be selected in levels of 1-5 or 1-10. The user assumes the role of captain of the TP1 Starship, who is stranded, along with his crew of eight, on the planet Mathematicus. Unfortunately, the spaceship has been dismantled by the Mathems, and the object of the game is to answer the questions correctly in order to rebuild the craft and escape. For added interest, occasional surprise attacks take place, so you have to keep your wits about you all the time. I found the sound effects in the game exceedingly annoying, and would have welcomed the chance to switch them off. I cannot imagine teachers in a busy classroom taking kindly to the irritating noise.
