Apple, IBM Math Tutorials
Mindplay has introduced two programs that help children learn about math while they're having fun.
In Campaign Math, players practice their math skills as they research issues, raise funds, and choose the advertising media that will help them win an election. This helps them hone not only their math skills, but their knowledge of political science elements like platform issues, surveying techniques, population size, and fundraising. In RoboMath, arcade action inspires robomathematicians to practice multiplication and division as they close down trashbot factories. Players choose a quick-answer method or use the screen to work out more difficult problems with a unique step-by-step process that prompts development of long division or multiplication skills.
Both programs are available for IBM PC and Apple II computers, and retail for $39.95 each.
