Introduction to “Levels”

In the "Practice", "Test", and "Flashcards" activities, the Level number determines the different frequencies with which different problems tend to be presented.  Frequencies vary from 0% (not at all) to more than 5% (once every 20 problems). 

In general, lower-numbered Levels emphasize easier problems, and higher-numbered Levels emphasize more difficult ones but still display (although much less frequently) problems emphasized in lower-numbered Levels. 

When the FlashMaster is turned from off to on, it is always set at Level 7—for each of the 4 arithmetic operations (+, -, ´, and ¸).  In Level 7, the FlashMaster essentially displays all problems taught by it (in the selected arithmetic operation)—except for the "11" and "12" tables in multiplication and division.  And more difficult problems are displayed more often than easier ones.  This is to avoid time being wasted by too much practicing of easy problems. 

When the "Practice", "Test", or "Flashcards" activity is selected, you can change the current Level to any other one of the 9 possible Levels by pushing the white "LEVEL # or TABLE #" key one or more times. 

Following are listed the problems that are emphasized in each Level for each arithmetic operation.

But remember:  Many of the Levels also include other problems, which are not listed because the Levels do not emphasize them.
