  • Chaining of operations
  • Wrappers for drawing functions
  • API documentation
  • simple mechanism for pre-loading images and audio

Known Bugs:

  • You cannot access the Adding_Up lesson from google chrome or chromium. It does work if you have the lesson stored on your local machine. This is because chromium does not yet support loading media over HTTP.
  • Knavbar with adding up.
  • The links on ‘kstart’ page to Teacher’s Note and Lesson Note don’t go anywhere
  • The css on stages 2 and 3 of Chakra are all screwed up
