__Mathematics‑Problem‑Generators__

**I have created six
software-based calculation devices this year (2011), that are designed to help
students practice solving various types of mathematics problems. I am
calling these devices**
__Mathematics-Problem-Generators.__**This website is primarily focused on one of these devices,
which is the Basic Algebraic Equation Generator. However, I am
presenting general information, and a list of all of the
Mathematics‑Problem‑Generators I created in 2011 in the following
introductory paragraphs. **

All of the
** Mathematics‑Problem‑Generators** listed below are

Each of the
__Mathematics‑Problem‑Generators__ listed below generate 12 mathematics
problems, when numbers are entered in their input boxes. They are useful
for multiple practice sessions, with similar sets of problems. This is
because the numbers in the input boxes can be changed for each practice session,
which results in a new set of problems that will have different calculated
results than the problems in the previous session.

The
__Mathematics-Problem-Generators__ listed below, are not tutorials, and they
do not provide, step-by-step instructions, on how to solve math problems.
They are designed for students that know how to solve a specific category of
math problems, but need practice to avoid errors, and to increase speed and
efficiency with the calculations.

__INSTRUCTIONS for the
Basic Algebraic Equation Generator____ __

**This software is very easy to use,
and it only requires a few simple steps, as follows: **

__1, Enter Four
Numbers)__** ** The __Basic Algebraic Equation
Generator,__ generates 12 basic algebra equations, for you to solve, as soon
as you enter four numbers in its input boxes. The input boxes are white
and they are located on the top section of the software. When you are
entering numbers, left click on the relevant white input box first, and then
immediately enter the number. If you want to avoid difficult arithmetic,
enter single-digit numbers.

__2, Solve the
equations____)__ After you enter the numbers, your job
is to scroll down and, solve the 12 equations with pencil and paper. You
can use a calculator for the arithmetic.

** 3, Check Your
Calculations)** To
check your calculated results, with the software, there is a pink box on the
bottom of each problem, with a letter

**Note)** The __Basic Algebraic
Equation Generator__ is designed to help students that know how to solve
__Algebraic Equations__, but need practice to avoid errors, and to increase
speed and efficiency with these calculations. If you do not know how to
solve basic algebraic equations, carry out a Google search for VIDEOS on:
__basic algebra,__ __solving algebraic equations__, and __solving
quadratic equations__.

__Optional Features of the Basic
Algebraic Equation Generator__

There are two optional features in
the** Basic Algebraic Equation
Generator.** These features contain their own instructions,
and I am briefly describing them below. Keep in mind that you can ignore
these features if you do not want to use them:

** The
Random Number Generator,** is available in some of the versions
of the

Below the white input
boxes of the ** Basic Algebraic Equation Generator,** there is a device, in a green box,
that controls the number of decimal places that are displayed in calculated
results. This device has a number in

__Technical
Description of The Basic Algebraic Equation Generator__

This software contains twelve algebraic equations, with coefficients and related solutions that change, by a mechanism controlled by the user. Specifically, the software calculates the coefficients of the equations, based on the absolute value of four numbers, entered by the user. A fraction of a second after the software has calculated the coefficients, it solves the twelve equations, but the solutions are initially invisible to the user. The software recalculates the value of the coefficients if the user enters a new set of numbers.

The user's task (the student) is to solve the equations with pencil and paper, which may be aided by a calculator when the arithmetic is difficult. After attempting to solve an equation, the user accesses the solution calculated by the software, to check the pencil and paper calculations. To do this, the user deletes a letter (N) in a pink input box, located beneath each equation. This activates a mechanism, which reveals the solution calculated by the software.

__The
Purpose of the Basic Algebraic Equation Generator__

The primary purpose of this software
is to assist students with the practice of basic algebra. This software
presents twelve equations that range from the simplest linear equations and
gradually progress to quadratic equations that are more difficult. The
software provides the utility of repetitive practice, for multiple practice
sessions. This provides practice with equations with similar structure,
but coefficients and calculated results are different from one session to
another. This is likely to assist most students in learning mathematics,
__if it is coupled with other learning
strategies.__

The
** Mathematics‑Problem‑Generators** suggests a methodology focused on
practicing the mechanics, the steps, or the algorithms of mathematics, but by
itself this is not an effective learning or teaching strategy. However, if
the above is combined with detailed instruction of the logic behind the
mechanics, and the related mathematical proofs, derivations, theorems, and
postulates, it will most likely result in a highly effective learning or
teaching strategy.

On the other hand, teaching or
studying the logical concepts involved with mathematical calculations, is not
likely to result in optimal learning, __unless it is combined with at least
some repetitive practice, involving problems with calculations.__ A
student that has a good understanding of the mathematical logic can probably
figure out the solutions to math problems that he or she studied, even without
repetitive practice, but this can be time consuming, and inefficient, especially
for tests. However, when repetitive practice, involving problem solving
and calculations, are coupled with a study of the logic, derivations, theorems,
and postulates, involved with the calculations, the optimum learning strategy is
probably achieved.

__Design Concept to Maximize
User‑Friendliness for the Website and the
____Software__

The website and
the __Mathematics‑Problem‑Generators__ were designed for efficiency and
ease-of-use. A single page was used for this website, and for the
__Mathematics‑Problem‑Generators,__ to avoid the need for pull-down menus,
and links to other pages. With this design, the user can scroll up or down
intuitively to navigate the website or the
__Mathematics‑Problem‑Generators__. However, for the website, I
provided a hyperlinked table of contents, as an alternative way of finding and
selecting topics and subtopics.

The text is clearly written, with large fonts, organized into relatively short paragraphs that are suitable for a website. I structured each sentence with the goal of minimizing confusion, and maximizing comprehension, for users with varying levels of technical knowledge. I provided many headings and subheadings, to allow the user to easily skip material that they find uninteresting or difficult.

__Services Offered by
the Author David Alderoty__

I design and build user-friendly
software based calculation devices for __arithmetic__, __accounting__,
__currency exchange rates__, __algebra__, __trigonometry__,
__correlations__, __calculus__, and databases with built-in calculation
devices. I also create attractive online calculation devices for
websites. I generally make these devices in the Microsoft Excel,
OpenOffice.org, and the JavaScript formats, but I can work with other
spreadsheet formats besides the above. I also create web communication
forms in JavaScript for websites. This includes forms with built-in
calculation devices.

I write instructions for the devices I build. I can also write instructions for software and computer devices created by others. In addition, I can write advertising for your websites, products and services.

I am located in the USA, New York City. If you are a great distance from my locality or are in another country, this is not important. I can provide the above services worldwide, because the software and the writing services I offer can be delivered through the Internet to any locality, providing there are no governmental restrictions.

like a book, but it is on one long webpage.__ You can scroll up or down to
go from one topic to another. However, if you want to examine all the
sections and subsections of this website, use the __hyperlink table of
contents__, below this paragraph. To go to any section or subsection of
this website you can left click on the blue words that relate to the material
