Learn
Math 3D on Orbital One allows you to also make up
your own tests. Learn
Math question maker
is part of the Learn Math 3D package and allows you to create more math tests
using a normal 2D Windows environment for use in the 3D world of Learn Math
3D on Orbital One.
243 extra tests are available for the teacher or student to
use and you can reuse the other 243 that come with the package.
The Learn Math Question Maker can
be downloaded and tried for free. Click here
( 728Kb) or click the download button below. Unlike Learn Math 3D the
question maker is designed for teachers and parents and is a more complex
piece of software.
It also includes the help file for the
whole Learn Math 3D package. There are no
time limitations on Learn Math
Question Maker and you are free to use it to create your own math
tests.
Simple examples
The first example is a simple missing number
question from the first topic, test 8, question 1. You are in the input mode so
red lines are shown and indicate where the user will place their
answer. All ten lines start off with the "Line not
used" status and you decide what each lines function will be. This can be
from just displaying the question to which line accepts the input.
Below is a compressed screen shot of the
same question in Learn Math 3D. The student is using their
mouse to move the number 4 into the white box. The
student can set the test to automatically check their answer or they
can press the enter key. ( You can, of course, just use the
keyboard to input your answers )
The second example from topic 8, test 3,
question 1 checks to see if the student knows what a quarter looks
like. The shapes are picked from a drop down list and in grid mode
you can draw grid lines directly onto the board area. Because you are in
the "Finished view" the red input lines are not
shown.
Below is a compressed screen shot of the
board in Learn Math 3D for this question. The student has not answered
yet or picked up a number from the bottom of the
board. If they do pick up a number with the cursor the cursor disappears and
is replaced with the actual number they picked up.
Note
The drop down list box in Math Question Maker
showing with " _{2}2 bottom
left " allows you to place borrow/carry forwards on any of the
four positions on each number in that line. Very handy for long
division and more complex addition/subtraction sums.
