Generate and print arithmetic problem sheet for younger elementary grade students.<br />
<h1>Purpose of this project</h1>
This project provides practice math problems for early-grade elementary school students. A set of random addition and/or subtraction problems are generated (but with some simple rules: no duplicates, and numbers must be within a specified range) for printing. My kid, in 2nd grade, is fine with math, but <b>not</b> the timed math tests given at school. He has to solve 25 addition and subtraction equations within 90 seconds, and he could not pass it. I wrote this program to make simulated math test problems printed in a form similar to the timed tests at school. After a few timed practices at home using the output of this application, my child finally passed the school test. It is my hope others might find this project useful for their elementary school students.<br /><br /><img src="http://download-codeplex.sec.s-msft.com/Download?ProjectName=MathSheetPrinter&DownloadId=808721" alt="MathSheetPrinterImage.png" title="MathSheetPrinterImage.png" /><br />
<h2>What does project this do?</h2>
On start up, the application creates a set of 25 math problems, currently limited to addition and subtraction. Click the "Print" button and a sheet with the 25 problems is sent to your printer. Need another sheet? Just click the "New Problems" button for a new set of math and print again. Don't like the number ranges, click the "Settings" button to customize the problem set.<br />
<h2>Can the math problems be adjusted?</h2>
Yes, just a bit through the Settings button. <br />The first tab allows setting the maximum X, Y values.<br /><img src="http://download-codeplex.sec.s-msft.com/Download?ProjectName=MathSheetPrinter&DownloadId=808722" alt="MathSheetPrinterOptionsOperandsImage.png" title="MathSheetPrinterOptionsOperandsImage.png" /><br />The entries must be such that the lowest valid number is 2 and the highest is 9,999.<br /><br />The second tab adjusts the types of math problems and whether or not to allow 0 in the problem set.<br /><img src="http://download-codeplex.sec.s-msft.com/Download?ProjectName=MathSheetPrinter&DownloadId=808723" alt="MathSheetPrinterOptionsRulesImage.png" title="MathSheetPrinterOptionsRulesImage.png" /><br />If only addition problems are needed, un-check the "Subtraction" check box. Having both "Addition" and "Subtraction" check marked includes both types in the problem set. If zero may be included in the problem set, check-mark the appropriate check box.<br />
<h1>What are the system requirements?</h1>
Windows Vista to 8.1 (desktop only)<br />.NET framework 4.5 needs to be installed.<br />A Windows-compatible, connected printer.<br />
<h1>How to install this application</h1>
Select the "Downloads" tab above and download the installer. Once on your PC, run the installer (sorry, but I do not have a costly certificate to give to the installer, so you will get a warning about "unknown publisher").<br /><br />Also, one may download the source code (Visual Studio 2013 solution) and build the application with your own copy of Visual Studio 2013 or later. Go to the source code tab and download the ZIP file.<br /><br /><b>Comments, suggestions and bug reports are welcome.</b><br /></div><div class="ClearBoth"></div>krisgusThu, 05 May 2016 00:29:29 GMTUpdated Wiki: Home 20160505122929AUpdated Wiki: Documentationhttps://mathsheetprinter.codeplex.com/documentation?version=2<div class="wikidoc"><h1>Math Sheet Printer Instructions</h1>
This application prints practice math problem work sheets.<br />
<h2>Prerequisites</h2>
This application runs on Windows with .NET 4.5 framework installed.<br />The code was create using Visual Studio 2013, so building from the source code will require VS 2013 or higher. This is a desktop application, not a Windows 8 tile application. A connected windows-compatible printer also is necessary.<br />
<h2>Building the source code <a href="https://mathsheetprinter.codeplex.com/wikipage?title=optional&referringTitle=Documentation">optional</a></h2>
<ul><li>If .NET 4.5 is not installed, it will need to be installed before the project can build. Try <a href="http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=30653">http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=30653</a> for the correct version for your installation of windows.</li>
<li>Download the source code ZIP file.</li>
<li>Unzip the source to an appropriate folder.</li>
<li>Open the solution file, MathSheetPrinter.sln, using Visual Studio (2013 or higher).</li>
<li>Create the release build, for example, by selecting menu "Build --> Build Solution".</li></ul>
<h2>Running the application</h2>
If MathSheetPrinter was installed using the downloaded installer, locate the "+ -" icon on the desktop and double click it.<br /><br />if MathSheetPrinter was built using your copy of Visual Studio, hit the <a href="https://mathsheetprinter.codeplex.com/wikipage?title=F5&referringTitle=Documentation">F5</a> button (or even better, <a href="https://mathsheetprinter.codeplex.com/wikipage?title=Ctrl&referringTitle=Documentation">Ctrl</a> <a href="https://mathsheetprinter.codeplex.com/wikipage?title=F5&referringTitle=Documentation">F5</a>).<br /><br />The MathSheetPrinter application will appear with a double-column of 25 arithmetic problems ready to print. If this set of problems in insufficient, or it is time to print a new set of problems, click the "New Problems" button at the top of the window to generate new math problems.<br /><br />The type of math problems create can be modified by clicking the "Settings" button. The "Operands" tab allows setting the maximum "X" and "Y" values for the problem set. The "Rules" tab allows selection of:
<ol><li>Only addition problems.</li>
<li>Only subtraction problems.</li>
<li>Both addition and subtraction (default)</li>
<li>Inclusion of "0" as a valid number (false by default).</li></ol>
<br />The changed settings can be saved for subsequent problem generation.<br />
<h2>Purpose</h2>
My kid is in 2nd grade at elementary school. He does fine with math, but not with the timed math tests, where he has to solve 25 X plus-or-minus Y problems in 90 seconds. I create this application so he could practice timed math at home. I have no special knowledge of the actual tests administered at his elementary school, just my observations of the tests he brings home.<br /><br />I welcome constructive suggestions and comments, or feature requests.</div><div class="ClearBoth"></div>krisgusThu, 05 May 2016 00:27:35 GMTUpdated Wiki: Documentation 20160505122735ANew Post: New version out soonhttp://mathsheetprinter.codeplex.com/discussions/541927<div style="line-height: normal;">A new version is in the works that permits setting the range for the X and Y variables, not must the maximum for each.<br />
