Description from the packaging.

How many ways to practice and learn!

Meg-A-Math Addition is one of the most educationally sound math programs available. And it is certainly one of the easiest to use, whether in the classroom or at home. The program's instructional format is based on current educational research which concludes:

(1) Math lessons need to be short in duration.
(2) The instructional format must match the student's needs.
(3) Students need immediate, positive feedback.
(4) Students need to be able to correct mistakes immediately.
(5) Forming correct visual images is essential.
(6) Students vary in how they best learn math.
(7) Some ensured success should be built into each lesson.

The difficulty level of Meg-A-Math Addition depends on the instructional format selected, and the numerical range of the problems. Both are under user control. Because of this the program can be used by young children just learning to add, as well as by older students; and by gifted as well as mentally handicapped students.

There are three main sections to the program. The first deals with adding numbers ranging in value from 0 to 9. The second goes further including negative values so that the range of numbers added can fall between -9 and +9. The third section enables the user to specify problems and sums ranging between -100 and +100.

Each section offers eight instructional formats, i.e. eight options of how best (for each student) to learn and practice addition. Option:

(1) Shows a problem and answer, and asks the student to say it aloud.
(2) Shows a problem and asks the student to type the answer.
(3) Shows a problem and asks the student to select the correct answer from four.
(4) Shows a problem and answer, and asks if it is the correct answer.
(5) Shows an incomplete problem and answer, and asks that it be completed.
(6) After seeing a problem and answer, students see only the problem and supply the answer.
(7) Shows a problem and asks the student to select the answer from several choices.
(8) After seeing a problem the student is asked to type the answer.

Meg-A-Math Addition records the most recent performance of the current student for each option exercised. These scores are displayed when the student selects Option (9) Stop.

Meg-A-Math Addition can run on any Apple II computer having at least 48K memory, Applesoft in ROM, and a single disk drive.
