﻿ MATHSprint Version 4.0        # MATHSprint Version 4.0            New features in Version 4.0

Now optimised for interactive whiteboard/touchscreen use:

• Generate and edit questions 'on the fly' using touch alone (no keyboard entry required).

• Add questions, edit the number of subsections, reorder and delete questions on the touch screen.

• Then use touch to write and draw on your pdf worksheets on the screen.

• In other words, unlimited questions for you to work through on your interactive board, generated on demand.

New features in Version 2.1

MATHSprint will now set entire examination papers for you, complete with a cover page and a customisable formula sheet!

• You have complete control over the front cover text and rubric as well as a choice of all GCSE formulae, including area and circumference of a circle, area of a trapezium, surface area and volume of a sphere, cone and cylinder, volume of a prism, Pythagoras, trigonometric ratios, sine and cosine rules, area of a triangle and the quadratic formula. You can also include any of these formulae on a standard worksheet if you wish.
