Designed to develop mental math skills, Speedy will help students
increase the speed with which they can calculate math problems in
their heads. Take instructional lessons from Filuren, the helpful
math guide. Receive practice tasks, qualify to compete, then embark
on a lightning fast competition across the school�s computer
network. Use the internal chat feature to invite a competitor to
play. The multiplayer internet feature means students at different
schools can challenge each other, and children can even compete with
parents and grandparents! The Speedy Manager function allows
teachers to peek in on students� progress, check high scores, change
difficulty levels, colors, sound, and more. After the journey
students will receive a driving license that contains all their
results from lessons, qualifications and competitions!

qualify for the competitions. Choose from: Time Out, Stress or Race.

allowed to compete!
