How do I use this program?
Download math_racer.zip and extract the contents anywhere on your computer. It's recommended that you extract to "C:\Program Files\Math Racer" and create a shortcut wherever you want, but it's up to you. Alternatively, you could put this program on a flash drive and run it from there. Just make sure "Progress.txt" is always in the same directory as the .exe file, otherwise the program won't work!
This is a pretty intuitive program to use. There are four types of math races: addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. You can also choose three different difficulties (the speed of your opponent) for each race type. This means that there are 12 (4x3) racing combinations. You start out with a score of 5 for each category. Every time you win, the score goes up by one point for that category, but your maximum number goes up as well. For example, if you score was 10 for the easy addition, the highest math problem you could solve would be 10 + 10 = 20. When you win that round, your score would move up to 11, resulting in a maximum addition problem of 11 + 11 = 22. To check your scores, click the button labeled "Hall of Fame." All 12 of your scores are visible there. If you ever want to reset your scores, modify them in "Progress.txt". The scores are stored in the first 12 numbers in that file.
