Tutorial 3: Create a Math Quiz
In this tutorial, you build a timed math quiz game, where the player must answer four random arithmetic problems within a specified time. You learn how to:
Generate random numbers using the Random class.
Trigger events using a Timer control.
Control program flow using if else statements.
Perform basic arithmetic operations.
When you finish, your program will look like the following picture.
In this tutorial, both Visual C# and Visual Basic are covered, so focus on information specific to the programming language that you're using.
Begin by creating the project, changing properties, and adding Label controls.
Create an addition problem that generates random numbers using the Random class.
Add a countdown timer so that the quiz can be timed.
Add a method to check for correct answers.
Add event handlers to make your program easier to use.
Add a subtraction problem that generates random numbers. Check for correct answers and use the timer.
Add multiplication and division problems that generate random numbers. Check for correct answers and use the timer.
Try other features, such as changing colors and adding a hint.
