Online Math Quiz
Get a random, 64 question addition/subtraction test on every view!

The inputs take only numbers and auto-tab to make it easy on young users, and answers are checked (and locked in) instantly. At the end, the correct/incorrect count and time are displayed. Tests can also be printed (click off of the first box to hide the cursor).

This originally began (way back... last night) as just a practice sheet generator to help my daughter with her timed math tests, to avoid the numerous shady or inadequate "resources" online.

However, that being a little too easy (and the results a little too school-like), I decided to make it interactive.

The problems are mostly random, only controlled so that a larger number is never subtracted from a smaller one (and therefore, you may see the same problem twice in a row).

There is plenty more I could do, but this meets our needs for now, and I didn't expect anyone other than myself to use it (I'm making this first projects post at the suggestion of a couple of #bunnies).

If there is interest, I'd be happy to share the (kinda ugly) PHP/jQuery source, add features or maybe put it up on a real host. I haven't tested it in every browser, but it is great in Chrome and at least functional in IE8.

I liked this a lot. Smooth running too!

My only suggestion? Make some way of telling the right from wrong aside from color coding. My red-green colorblind eyes can't tell them apart...

I only missed 1, but it said I got "-2 incorrect" at the end. Also, if I choose to check my answers, it's not obvious how to get back to the test results/stats. Is that even an option?
