[ ] TODDLER AND PRESCHOOL GAMEROOM. Twelve games designed for children aged between 1 and 5. Some of the activities are Doodle (draw a picture), Letters (type letters on screen), Reflex (test reaction time), Same/Different (distinguish between patterns), 1 to 9 (touch numbers in order), Simon (repeat the pattern). Created by Linda Van Zee and Gabor Laufer. Some of the games require a joystick.

[ ] HINKY PINKY (double-sided, shareware). In this educational game, you try to guess pairs of rhyming words like "fat cat" or "fender bender" based on a definition, the number of syllables in each word and, if needed, the number of syllables in each word. There are three levels of difficulty and you are also able to create your own pairs of words. Professionally designed by the folks at The 22nd Avenue Workshop.

[ ] APPLE FOR THE TEACHER. Six programs which give children practice in sharpening their math skills. Topics include addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, estimating, fractions, making change. (Not for GS.)

[ ] MATH INVADERS (shareware). As the name suggests, this is a math drilling program in the form of a space invaders game. The goal is to shoot invading aliens representing the answers to addition problems. A version covering subtraction, multiplication, and division is available from the author, Alan Needham.

[ ] NEWTON'S APPLE (double-sided). A series of science tutorials presented by DuPont Corporation in conjunction with the TV show of the same name. The first side of the disk contains lessons on mirrors and inertia. The reverse side of the disk contains a tutorial on probability and a quiz testing your general knowledge of science.

[ ] GM SUNRAYCER (double-sided). In 1987, the General Motors Sunraycer was the winner out of 24 solar powered cars in a race across the continent of Australia. This program explains the principles of solar energy and the winning ideas used in designing the GM Sunraycer. You will also be given the opportunity to take the controls of the Sunraycer and try to qualify for the pole position in the race.

[ ] SOLAR RACER CONSTRUCTION KIT. In this simulation, you build and test your own solar racer making the same types of decisions that the designers of the Sunraycer had to make. You choose the parts of your car (type of frame, battery/motor, and solar panel), then try out your racer on one of fourteen available test tracks in different kinds of weather.

[ ] PHYSICS TUTORIAL (double-sided). This disk contains a wide array of physics lessons. Topics covered are vector arithmetic, one-dimensional kinematics, gravitational acceleration, projectile motion, circular motion, conservation of linear and angular momentum, one- and two-dimensional collisions, simple harmonic motion, calorimetry, thermodynamics, and heat engines. These lessons come from Steven D. Kamm, South Oklahoma Junior College, with support from the National Science Foundation.

[ ] PICO-MATH (shareware). A series of programs which gives you the ability to expand, take derivatives of, and integrate mathematical functions. Separate programs are included to handle polynomial, trigonometric, Fourier, and rational functions. From the Soft Warehouse (creators of muMath and its successor Derive).

[ ] APPLEWORKS MIND TEASERS (double-sided). This collection of logic puzzles, in AppleWorks format, challenges students to think and problem solve. The information on this disk was gathered over the past 15 years by R.L. Reid of the Milwaukee Public School System. Answers are included in separate files.

[ ] CREATE A TEST. A system of programs designed to make it easy to create true/false, multiple choice, fill in the blank, and word match tests. Some example files are included to demonstrate the range of tests it is possible to create. By Donna K. Woody.

[ ] CLASS RECORDS (shareware). A grading system for secondary school and college instructors. Class lists may be kept and modified. Exams can be graded with a fixed point scale or by "curve" and can be weighted. Cumulative scores are available as total raw scores and average standard scores. Histograms of scores may be displayed and/or printed. By Walt Wilson and Nick Brown, Educator Software.
