Dear Shuki,

How do I create red dot sets for 1 - 5 and 6 - 10?  I see that I can choose other icons, and do not understand how to choose red dots?  confused

Also, I want to set up a schedule inside of LM using category names of Day 1 Set 1 Numbers, Day 1 Set 2, Day 1 Set 3; etc. and then categories for addition/subtraction/multiplication/division/etc. and then I will create a playlist with Day 1, Day 2, Day 3, etc.  I am still unsure how to do this in LM?

Thank you in advance.  smile

Hi Ayesha,

I'll walk you through how to create 1-5 in red dots smile

1. In Little Math, go to the PLAYBACK screen, and click on the yellow "Learn numbers" button to go into your numbers list.
2. Click on the + NEW button in the bottom left part of Little Math to create a new Preset.  Type in the name of your new Preset and press ENTER on your keyboard to confirm.
3. On the right side of the screen there are two SETTINGS buttons, click on the upper SETTINGS button to enter your number settings.
4. Adjust the number range to show From: 1 on the left, and To: 5 on the right.
5. Change the Number of Displays to 5.
6. Make sure the Order is set to "Numerical Forward"

Now that we've set which numbers we want to display, time to adjust how the numbers are shown so they will be large red dots!

1. At the top of the Number Settings window, click on the DISPLAY tab.
2. Adjust the three displays so only the first one is active (the "1" will be in a green circle, the "2" and "3" should be grey) and set to ICON.
3. In the lower-left "Icon" section, change "Icon Set" to "Basic Shapes"
4. Change "Icon Item" to "Circle".
5. Adjust the other settings as desired, such as changing the colour to Red if you want red dots.

Finally, click SAVE to confirm your changes.

With regards to setting up schedules in Little Math, you may use Folders to separate your sets of numbers or math into individual days (see attachment for an example).

Hope that helps! smile

Dear Shuki,

You are the best!  yes Thank you!  smile

Now that I have set up my daily word sets in LR - I am now ready to do the same in LM and this makes it easier since I am still learning how to use it.

How do I set up the math formulas in LM using the schedule from Mandi or Doman Mom:

Reply #19
http://forum.brillkids.com/teaching-your-child-math/schedule-available-for-download-print/msg24394/#msg24394

Do I just create a new category and name it as Day 1 Set 1 with the corresponding cards in it?  and continue through the schedule and put it on random?

Thanks a million!
Ayesha smile

Hi Ayesha,

Briefly skimming through, I think most of the work has already been done for you actually! laugh

If you want to go with Shichida's schedule (retiring in 5's), have a look at Agnesdecham's files, which run through both cycles of numbers through to math.

To stick more closely to the Doman method (retiring in 2's), check out anjie's great files!  These also run through both numbers and math, so you can use those as your foundation and personalise as you see fit.

Good luck, and happy teaching! smile

Cheers,
shuki smile

Hi all..

Thank you Shuki for suggesting my files and thank you Ayesha for being interested in it.

As I promised you, here's the schedule of Doman maths that I uploaded as presets.  While downloading each day's

presets, you will find that 2 numbers have been introduced and 2 have been retired.  The whole series have been

already done, so you don't have to change it.  As you progress if you feel like retiring 3 or 4 numbers, you can

change it in Number settings. Also please keep the files in a separate folder as to avoid any confusion.  Hope this

will be helpful to all.  Feel free to PM for any queries.

 smile

Hi Shuki,
My question is how to inactivate icon sets which I don't want to use now. I don't want to delete them or to export somewhere, just to switch them off! here are several icon sets, and I want to use just one of them, and others later!
Thanks smile smile

Hi Frukc,

It sounds like your Icon Settings may be on Random (each slide) or Random (each playback)!

I've written up a quick FAQ for you to explain Icon Settings - click here to see the FAQ.

If you want to use just one of the Icon Sets, you may select the specific Icon Set you want from the drop-down menu in the Preset Settings window!

Cheers,
shuki smile

Thanks! Succeeded!
I was thinking, is there a possibility to switch off 3 of 5 icon sets etc. But now I see that it is much better to use one icon set feo each preset smilesmile

Hi Frukc,

I see...  Unfortunately Little Math doesn't have quite that extensive customization, but thanks for the suggestion!  Who knows, maybe it will feature in future versions of Little Math  yes

Thanks, and happy teaching smile

1. I've noticed that sometimes the icons are bigger and sometimes they are smaller. My baby prefers the large ones - is there a function that can adjust to show onle large icons?

Under Display Settings, you can adjust the icon size.  However, do note that ultimately, the maximum size is still controlled by LM depending on the number of icons being shown on the screen.

Quote
2. How can I make my own equations using both numbers and icons? f.eks. I need 25+5=30 where 25 is shown with icons and 5 is a number?

You can only do that for multiplication and division - see the same Display Settings page, on the top right section.

Quote
3. How to get a fine "round"-picture of my babys face to put it in LM?

You would need a graphics editor like Photoshop to edit the photo first, either by making the background transparent, or coloring it white.

I"m afraid LM does not have a print function at this time.

The best way to print right now would be to take screenshots of each number screen (whichever icons you like), and then paste them onto Powerpoint and then print off the slides.

Just show them on separate occasions to reinforce what she's learning through LM.

Hi there,

We have reached about lesson 60 but our little one seems very bored or disinterested in Maths(compared to absolute concentration with her reading). She literally starts looking away and playing around during maths time (started to show signs of this around lesson 50).  Should we give it a break (because she's not watching the screen anyway)?  Any suggestions?  Maybe change icons?  Size seems to be a factor to some....
