Big Daddy's Math Drills is a set of simple text based drills For Windows or Linux

Description  Big Daddy's Math Drills is a cross platform set of simple text based drills in basic addition, subtraction, multiplication and division tables featuring programmed instruction, adaptive learning, and user profiles.
Big Daddy's Math Drills Version 2.0

This is the upgrade you have all been waiting for (at least I've been waiting for it) since 1997 when the first version was released. It finally works more or less the way I always wanted, including

    All the drills are now in a single integrated program with modules for addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division.
    The program now leads you through a course of gradual programmed learning in each module, keeps track of your progress with user profiles so when you start a new session you can pick up right where you left off, and generates progress reports.
    As you gain in accuracy, you are allowed less time to answer.  When you reach a high level of accuracy at high speed, larger numbers are introduced and more time is again allowed.
    The program now adapts to your answers by decreasing the frequency of correctly answered questions, and increasing the frequency of incorrectly answered questions, so that the drills are enriched both in newly introduced problems and others requiring additional practice.

This version has been released as free and open source software under the Gnu General Public License 3.0.  Both the complete source code, and precompiled binaries that you can just copy to a folder and run under either Windows or Linux, are at the project's home page at Sourceforge.

Please let me know if you have any problems or questions.
