The features of the Math Tester software is quite straight forward and self explanatory.
There are three prepared algebra and trigonometry exams that are suitable for high school
level math students. These could be either answered with multiple choice from selected
from the checkbox labelled A through E or need to be answered directly by typing in the
answer in the text box provided for question requiring a typed in answer. Click on the
**Start Exam** button to start the prepared exams. Each prepared exam is 50 questions
in length and there are 3 prepared exams included with the Math Tester software.

In addition to the prepared high school level exams, a basic math problem generator is
also included which generates math problems involving basic arithmetic. These include
problems involving addition, subtraction, multiplication, division and mixed problems
involving bracketed math operation and also arithmetic operations involving fractions.
A math tutorial for basic math concepts is also included. Click on the **Generate
Problems** button to generate a 50 question quiz involving basic math problems.

In doing the prepared high school level exams, the Math Tester program will either
show a sequence of multiple choice check boxes that the student need to choose from
corresponding to the possible answers shown after each math question is displayed in
the text window or a text box is shown instead where the student taking the exam needs
to type in the answer to the math problem directly. The prepared exams are started after
the user clicks on the **Start Exam** button upon starting up the Math Tester software
or click on the **Next Exam** button after a 50 question exam has been completed or
quitted. Click on the **Submit** button to submit your final decision for the answer
or click on the **Clear** button to erase your answer and restart the question.

Upon clicking on the **Generate Problems** button immediately afterwards a dialogue box
will appear asking the user whether or not you want to review basic math concepts with the
included basic math tutorial that comes with the Math Tester software. Clicking the **yes**
button will start the basic math tutorial which goes over concepts in basic arithmetic in
graphical detail showing how each basic math operation works and shows a step-by-step process
of solving those basic math problems. Clicking the **No** button will immediately start a
new quiz on basic math concepts that's generated by the software.

The generated basic math quiz follows the same format as the prepared exams except all answers must be typed in directly into the answer text box provided. There are no multiple choice questions available for the software generated math quizzes.

If you click the **Yes** button when the prompt box is displayed asking you whether or not
you would like to review the Basic Math Tutorial then a graphical math tutorial on
understanding and solving basic arithmetic problems will be shown. Each problem involving
addition, subtraction, multiplication, division and mixed problems involving bracketed math
operation and also arithmetic operations involving fractions will be solved in a
step-by-step process with detailed graphical explanations following each step in the
problem solving process shown.

Click the **close** button at the bottom of the graphical window to close the explanation
that's displayed for each step in the math tutorial. Click on the **Next** button to
proceed to the next step in the math tutorial or the **Previous** button to go back to a
previous step in case you don't quite understand the solution process. You can also choose to
quit the math tutorial early by clicking on the **quit** button.

After an exam or generated quiz have ended or have been quitted you have the following list of
options available in the Math Tester. You can click on the **Review** button to go through
the solution and detailed explanation for each question in the exam. You can click on the
**Restart** button to restart the current exam. You can click on the **Next Exam** button
to start the next exam (There are three prepared exams in total). You can click on the
**Generate Problems** button to generate a 50 question quiz involving basic math concepts or
to view the Basic Math Tutorial. Or, you can click on the **Quit** button to quit the software.
