Software For Gifted And Talented Students
Island Software has released the Mindstretcher Series, a set of programs for gifted and talented students in grades three through nine.
Jigsaw (MS 1) is a group of four programs that present 16 picture puzzles, ranging from a view of New York city to Whistler's Mother.
Traffic Jam I Chain Reaction (MS 2) consists of two programs that provide exercise in strategy, as players try to force their opponents into vulnerable situations.
Rubik / Candles (MS 3) contains two programs that challenge students to develop problem-solving skills.
Black / Kayles (MS 4) presents two contests, with deceptively simple rules, that use advanced mathematical theory.
Jinx / Welter (MS 5), also two programs, develops deductive reasoning and insight into the structure of mathematical abstractions.
All programs work with any 8K PET. Every program includes a teacher's guide sheet with specific teaching suggestions.
Each set of programs is available for $20.
