The "Animated Arithmetic CD" for Windows and Win 95 teaches addition, subtraction, multiplication and division for children from 1st through 4th grades. It provides exercises in addition and subtraction with and without regrouping. Problems can involve up to 9 digits. More than just a drill program, progressive help is given as needed to instruct the child to solve the problems. The multiplication and division problems are based on the multiplication table from 1 to 10, it teaches "mental math" in a painless way.
Progressive help is given as needed when the student is having difficulty with a particular problem (not just a Wrong! response from the computer).
Once ten problems are completed, the student gets to visit the game room. There are over 20 puzzles using 3D animation and sound on the registered CD ROM. The child can choose 12, 24, or 48 pieces. Hints for solving the puzzles are available, or the child can have the computer solve the puzzle and enjoy the (mostly silly) animation. There is also a maze game where the child can play mazes of varying complexity (which are rewarded with an animation when solved), or make and save their own mazes for their friends to try and solve. You can even choose to have the computer solve the maze  watching it find it's way out can be fascinating. There is over 160 Meg of animation and sound in the games on the CD!

Brain Builder  Math Edition includes over 500 million problems presented in a fun multimedia format. Sharpen your problem solving and critical thinking skills by tackling math puzzles that are presented at precisely your learning level. The program includes Multiple Choice Warmup games and Three, Four, and Five Number Puzzle games. The problems are easy enough for a third grader to master, but at higher levels they will challenge even a math wizard. Watch your math scores climb dramatically as your rank advances from Learner all the way up to Math Genius.
There are three levels of Warmup games (Basic, Intermediate, and Advanced). The Basic game lets you select addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division to practice on. The Intermediate game randomly uses any one of the four operations. The Advanced game also uses any one of the four operations of addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division in its problems. However, you must find ALL of the correct answers. For example if the question was 3 ? 6 = ? and your answer choices were 2, 3, 6, 9, and 18, you must click on four numbers (2, 6, 9 and 18). These Multiple Choice Warmup games prepare you to play the Three, Four, and Five Number Puzzle games by making you familiar with using all of the operations of addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division in problem solving.
In the Three, Four, and Five Number Puzzle games you must solve the answer using ALL of the given puzzle numbers exactly ONCE. For example, a Three Number Puzzle puzzle problem is 3, 4, 5 = 2. The solution is 3+4 = 7, and 75=2. Each of the Three Number, Four Number and Five Number Puzzle games have four levels of difficulty.
As well, all games have two different modes of play. You can select the "10 problem" mode, or "time trial" mode in which you must correctly answer as many problems as you can within a fixed time limit.
Also features a special OneOnOne combat option that makes math an exciting twoplayer game.
