Flashcards for Kids
http://www.edu4kids.com/index.php?page=12&TB=2

C+ CONTENT:
This site is an online, free application of flash cards for math with a variety of options and mathematical operations.

C+ AESTHETICS:
The site consists of one page and is a simple table format without color or graphics.

B ORGANIZATION:
All the information needed to operate the application is well-marked and easy to use.

REVIEW:
This page was set up to help kids learn basic math skills using the Internet. Because of the simplicity, this site would be appropriate for grades K-12 but would greatly reinforce lower level lesson plans. The user can choose the flash card to provide equations for addition, subtraction, multiplication, division and a combination of addition and subtraction. Other options to set include the "complexity" (the amount of numbers in an equation, from two to ten) and the numbers to be used (from 0-999). Once the flash card is set up a random equation appears with a box for the user to input an answer. The program either displays a congratulations message or an error message and gives the correct answer. Since the problems are randomly generated this program could be used over and over again. This could be a great starting point for math teachers new to the internet and wanting to incorporate an interactive lesson into their classroom but it is also a good resource for anyone wishing to brush up on math skills.
