This program develops
students' non-calculator skills by generating numeracy questions
according to the user's choice of topic, complexity and phrasing,
from a database of over 1200 distinct types of problems.
This 'Non-Calculator' Challenge provides comprehensive coverage
of all basic operations and calculations involving integers, fractions,
decimals and percentages. There is ample opportunity for students
to work at their own level of competence and confidence and progress
at their own rate. The scoring system and timing options support
individual target setting.
on either specific topics or a mixture of topics can be generated.
> Uses a database of 442 Integer, 356 Decimal, 200 Percentage
and 240 Fraction question levels.
> Select difficulty against Scottish 5-14 levels, SQA Standard
Grade levels or individual level number.
> Choice to be presented with questions either in random difficulty
order, or progressively difficult.
> Choice of questions to be presented in a variety of formats,
including "traditional" visual layouts as well as using phrases
such as "sum", "product", etc
> Choice of whether to have responses timed, with a mean completion
time calculated at the end.

is advised by the program to seek help from the teacher. In addition,
at the end, students must go back and do their corrections to enforce
and consolidate successful strategies.
