Mathematics - Number Balance

 Home > Browse Our Collection > Software > Acorn > BBC Micro Software > Acorn Computer (USA) > Mathematics - Number Balance

Number Balance is a set of two, easy to use, programs that help maths learners resolve questions of equality and inequality in simple math equations.

Addition/Subtraction and Multiplication/Division are pictorial programs for practicing simple mathematical operations for numbers 1 to 20.

The object of the exercise is to make a balance level by typing the correct missing number into one side of a simple equation. Incorrect answers tilt the balance in the appropriate direction. After two incorrect attempts, the program responds with the correct answer.

Number Balance offers a high degree of user control. Each program gives the user the opportunity to set the layout, difficulty, content and timing of the exercise. Once these parameters are set, the program can be used by up to 12 children and their results will be stored for future recall.

This package contains Acorn schoolware that meets or exceeds quality standards set by the Acorn Educational Advisory Board.
