Master Math Word Problems v1.0
for Mac OS X 10.1 or higher
Release date: April 15, 2002

Master Math Word Problems is an easy to use program to aide students in
learning to identify key words that identify mathematical operations and work
through mathematical word problems. Word problems are considered important
because they take math into the real world. Unfortunately solving word
problems is one of the areas where students have the most difficulties in
elementary math. Master Math Word Problems helps students develop word
problem skills through practice. It features optional on screen tips and
three practice modes. Results of each round as well as missed questions may
be printed with student name and time/date stamp.

Partitioning in OS X is probably less useful than under OS9. You may find
yourself running out of space for one partition or the other. I say this as
a long time proponent of partitioning. I now run everything out of one 30G
partition with the exception of a swap partition for OS X. There are several
other suggestions for running OS X, but will save that for later.

All that aside, since it doesn't affect your problem, ensure that your
network setup is absolutely perfect. Particularly look at your DNS (Domain
Name Servers), Router/Gateway, broadcast ( is pretty standard),

Assuming you have already done that, I would suspect either a bad modem or a
bad wire. Believe it or not, bad phone wires are not that uncommon. Try
switching wires with the system that works. Alas, all of that will probably
merely confirm a bad modem. An interesting option using OS X is
multi-homing. If you can get an OS X machine to dial up successfully, it can
serve as a router for another OS X machine. The two machines need to be
connected via a hub or crossover cable.

9.2.2 is faster booting and a little more stable. CD RW is better along with
better support for digital hub applications.

> Will 9.2.2 have some features not present in 9.1?
Actually there are some that go away - you will no longer be able to dial in
to Appletalk networks that do not support PPP.

I also lost the ability to play a couple of games I liked e.g. Imperialism
II, actually I think I lost that with 9.1.
