Ultimate Challenge
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.


Features

> Uses a database of 442 Integer, 356 Decimal, 200 Percentage and 240 Fraction question levels.
