New: Hundred Number Item for Math Exercises

The new Worksheet Crafter comes with a hundred number item which is ideal for teaching students the number space from 1 to 100. This math activity also supports showing parts of the grid only, as well as showing patterns. The start value is configurable so that it can be used in number spaces  larger than 100 as well.

Im manual mode, without exercise generator, the visibility of cells and values is freely configurable.

Custom Shapes

As requested by many customers we have now added support for various shapes. This includes lines, arrows, curves, triangles, rectangles, circles, diamonds, stars and more. All these shapes can be placed and resized on the worksheet. The color and thickness of the shape lines as well as the fill color is freely configurable. Additional shape modifications, such as the head position of the triangle, can be interactively adjusted on the worksheet.

The new shapes can be found in the item bar at the left side of the application.

Isometric Grid Representation for Math Grid Item

The math grid item now provides a new visualization for an isometric grid. This visualization is an ideal basis for three dimensional drawings. Since the height and width is configurable, the perspective of the grid can be configured as desired.
