     Teach yourself to count in binary on your fingers. Includes a couple of simple finger games, let me know if you develop others and I'll add them. Converted earlier program to use a tidier UserControl. Fixed a logic error one of the games.

For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
  3. Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net

Nicely done!

I have something you're on the border of: chisenbop/chisanbop. You basically use your hands/fingers as you would an abacus...Now, if you'd like something *very* challenging, buy one of the books about Trachtenberg and provide a tutorial (using something similar to your project.)

You can look for Trachtenberg in WIkipedia, but the only things they mention (and they do so lightly) is simple multiplication, not doing Trachtenberg any justice. When it comes to standardized tests, it really shouldn't matter how you come up with your answers, as the kids will be doing work with computers far earlier than they should. That said, students have to turn in their work so it can be determined if they are using the correct techniques -- so that when they go into higher forms of calculus, their brains won't get a sprain because they don't have to relearn how to solve certain types of problems. *cough* *choke* *sputter*
