This tape includes two programs. On one, children calculate numbers with 2-XL providing the answers. On the other, children use the booklet to test their math skills. This tape includes a lot of music, a bit of sports trivia, and quite a few math-themed jokes, e.g. “Why is a baby the least important member of a family? Because it doesn’t count!” & “How do you make ‘seven’ even? Take away the ‘s’!”
Here is the blurb from the tape: “A program to teach, test, and review the addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division of numbers. As long as you can add 2+2, 2-XL will come up with numbers and also ‘calculate’ the answers. By the press of a button, you decide how difficult this program should be. Math skills have never been so much fun. For children 4 to 9 years old.”
