MENTALMATH is an educational assistant targeting students that want to practice and improve their arithmetics skills. It deals with the most basic math operations, such as additions, subtractions, multiplications and divisions and is able to generate expressions of low, medium and high complexity.
The interface is classy and visual appealing, as it has been built to comply with modern standards (modern UI style). Most of the GUI is reserved for displaying the math questions, while several configurations are made available in the lower part, under the Settings section.
Here, you can create personalized profiles which can be saved and loaded at a later time. The use of profiles is important, because it allows the audience to create customized tests based on criteria that is specific to a certain math operation. For instance, if you want to practice multiplications exclusively, you can create a profile that allows you to do just that.
Moreover, you can adjust the complexity of the operations by configuring the number of items that will be placed in the expression to be solved (between one and four). Also, there’s the possibility to set a limit on the maximum result, which will restrict the application to generating expressions whose calculated output doesn’t exceed the preset margin.
If you decide to use the program in quiz mode, you should set the countdown interval first, which is an indicator of the time gap between two consequent questions. While you’re answering the questions, the application will display your progress visually at the top of the main GUI.
MENTALMATH does not provide the answer to a question you haven’t answered correctly, but allows you to assess your skills by displaying the percentage of your success. High percentages are indicators of great performances.
