I need to flash numbers quickly, for addition training

Is there a free or cheap program which displays sequences of random numbers and then, their sum? Screen-filling numbers, like Sesame Street. One, two, three and even four digits, positive and negative. Repeatable sequences and user-controlled speed a plus.

Sounds like the kind of thing that should be super easy to throw together in Javascript on a web page. Can you provide some example sequences?

... each number filling the screen, flipping to the next in less than a second, and at the end, after a longer interval the solution appears:

I've done it with Powerpoint but there's gotta be an easier way.

Best answer: Honestly, given how specific your requirements are I'd suggest programming it yourself. It would be very quick to do in Processing or Python or JavaScript, as suggested above. I doubt there is a quicker way to get exactly what you're looking for, as addition trainers are mostly for two numbers. Good luck!

Response by poster: I'm on my way, getting some good results after playing around with it for a while, thanks for the pointer! I'd never heard of Processing* before but it seems to be exactly the tool I need. Thanks!
