I recently updated QuizCalc. QuizCalc is more than just a cool calculator. It also helps kids develop basic arithmetic skills. QuizCalc shifts into the quiz mode by simply tapping a key on the calculator face. Once in quiz mode, the operation keys (+, –, × and ÷) are used to select a math skill for practicing. Likewise the function keys (%, √, +/- and x²) shift the quiz into presenting problems related to percent, square root, integers and powers. In quiz mode QuizCalc will show two keys labelled L1 and L2. These keys are used to select the level for the problems. When L2 is selected the problems are more challenging that when using the L1 option.

But of course, QuizCalc is also a basic calculator perfect for elementary age students with percent, square root, integer, power and memory ( +, – , C & R ) functions.
