When students answer a math problem correctly, an adorable animated character does a dance or performs a clever trick.

Sometimes a student may need a little help getting started on a math problem. That's what the "Hint" icon at the lower left-hand corner of the screen is for.

The teacher or parent maintains control over the hint function and is able to turn it on and off at will.
