Maths Trainer – CD-ROM

The “Maths Trainer” takes users to "Universe City" where they can follow the school adventures of Nina, Van and Alpha. Each of the four CDs contains the topics covered in one school year (5th, 6th, 7th and 8th year of upper secondary school). The topics are based on the syllabus of a secondary school with a focus on science and therefore provide a solid basis for all schools offering graduation with university entitlement. The linear structure of maths — nearly every chapter builds on what was learned in the previous chapters — is taken into account: the four school years proceed step by step but are thematically linked.
