ReckonPrimer is an XO activity covering introduction and exercising of the four basic arithmetic operations. The pedagogical structure follows from long-lasting experiences in didactics of primary education at Austrian schools. The software will be developed under the internationalization and localization policies suggested by Sugar Labs. In particular, local variants of operations (eg. division in English speaking countries versus division in German speaking countries etc) will be respected. The software establishes elaborated sequences of learning situations, leading from simple calculations by heart to the final operations as written by hand. All e-learning situations are supported by immediate feedback. Summative assessment enables allows coaching (even in distance learning) and advice on how to proceed in the sequence of learning situations. There will be a clear-cut interface to diagnosis and special treatment for dyscalculia. The mode of exercises can be chosen as biased towards self-monitoring (the learner knows her or his position in the learning sequence), towards competition, towards cooperation or games. Cooperative and game-oriented modes address international teams, where each participant is represented by his or her name, the nationality and possibly by his or her mother tongue (see below). ReckonPrimer allows to combine early language learning with all the exercises implemented: the numbers involved in the exercises are the same all over the world, and the software relates the numbers with the respective words recorded in any language via headphones of the XO-hardware .
