***HOOKMATHk is the Hooked on Math demo by Vince Valenti of PAC (Programs
from Atari Consumers). Hooked on Math presents the user with an easily
mastered interface with a pleasing 3D look. The math student (suggested
ages 6-12) gets to choose between three levels of difficulty in
practicing addition, subtraction, or multiplication skills (the demo
allows only the easiest level of addition practice). You are presented
with a math problem (written vertically). A list of four possible
answers are written on boards on the right of the screen. Using the
mouse you drag the correct (hopefully!) answer over to the problem. If
correct a sampled voice congratulates you (presenting one of several
different congratulations each time). If you are incorrect the program
also tells you and goes on to the next problem. At the end of the
practice session (normally 25 problems, but in the demo only five
problems) the program lists your score. ST-TT compatible. Requires at
least 512K of RAM and a color monitor. The complete program is even
better than the demo. I know, I have it!
