Annos Learning Games is a educational program for K-3 by Putnam New Media It is available for both the Macintosh and MS-Windows platform The activities are designed to strengthen students logic and math skills in an enjoyable and entertaining way The program is inspired by Mitsumasa Annos book Annos Math Games After booting the program the user selects one of seven games by clicking on its icon The interface is intuitive enough to learn in a matter of minutes and is very appropriate for the age group If the user needs any help there is on-line help available and the language in the help is clearly and plainly worded The first game I tried was CARDS a card game that helps teach logic and sequence There is also a side program that allows you to customize the deck This is a fun activity for kids but the real meat of the program is the card game GUESS MY RULE is a game where the student tries to classify a jumble of objects in a Venn diagram The student needs to find commonalties between seemingly dissimilar objects and then guess what the rules of commonality are The task is made easier with hints couched in the comments of the two hosts Kriss and Kross GUESSING MACHINE is a interesting attempt at artificial intelligence The user thinks of something and the computer asks yes or no questions about it If you stump the computer the student becomes the teacher and teaches the computer what the something was and some parameters about it The next time you play the game the program will use this saved information and be smarter The game is a logic exercise for the student but it makes the student feel useful in teaching the computer STORYMAKER is probably what kids will most enjoy because of the use
