Besides Valgetal and Matego, our star programs, we have developed some more educational software. The programs are suitable for high schools, and perhaps elementary schools, for students aged between about 11 and 17 years. They could of course also be used at home, to be a help with the homework.
Powers of Ten ---
Learn how to write powers of ten as decimal numbers, how to multiply and divide powers of ten, how to multiply with the square root and how to raise a power to a power to ten. There are seven different exercises. Also is it possible to play for a High Score, which will surely increase the motivation!

These are equations involving only one variable, like x, and nothing complicated like powers or square roots. With this special educational program you learn how to resolve them. In four different exercises you make use of the following rules:
an equation you may
Like in our other programs, you hardly have to use pen and paper, and the exercises are not simply "questions with an answer", but a special kind of "dynamic-game-like-mathematics".
To challenge your knowledge, you can play "Valgebra": By manoeuvring the falling x-terms and numbers, you resolve an equation. But take care.., if you make a mistake, you are penalised by a reduction in the size of the container, which immediately makes it harder to control successive terms precisely!
