AbstractThe specification discloses an electronic mathematics trainer including a problem sheet bearing a plurality of arithmetic problems. An arithmetic problem display holder receives the problem sheet and includes lamps therein for sequentially being illuminated to indicate sequential ones of the arithmetic problems to be solved. A keyboard encoder enables a student to manually enter the arithmetic problem presently illuminated on the problem sheet. A display unit displays the arithmetic problem which is entered into the encoder. Circuitry is provided to compute the correct answer to the arithmetic problem entered into the encoder, along with at least one incorrect answer. The incorrect and correct answers are displayed on the display unit. Structure is provided to enable the selection of one of the displayed answers. If the correct answer is selected, the answer to the problem is then displayed adjacent the displayed problem. Circuitry in the display holder is responsive to the selection of the correct displayed answer in oder to advance the illumination of the lamps to the next arithmetic problem on the problem sheet. Selection of the correct displayed answer also clears the arithmetic problem displayed on the display unit.
