Keeping in the grand tradition of making a nod toward Edutainment, and following the axiom that better versions of old games might sell well and are probably cheap to develop, we have Learning Fun I and its happy companion Learning Fun II. This is an expansion of the original Math Fun (renamed Math Master) cartridge, adding a new game–Factor Fun. Math Master is just basic addition, subtraction, multiplication and division skill testing. In Factor Fun, you try to combine the numbers you're given via addition, subtraction, etc. to calculate a value as close as possible to a given target number. The closer you are, the better your score.

The title screen for the game is pretty. The Math Master graphics are unchanged from Math Fun. Interestingly, the gameplay uses the 'backwards' answer entry format–namely you enter ones place digit, then tens place, etc. as if you were working the problem on paper. This is the opposite of what the typical Math Fun cartridge offers. The official Intellivision Lives! site has details about the Math Fun ROM variants (as does the Math Fun page at this site). Factor Fun has nicer graphics than Math Master, and better sound. In both cases, the sound is minimal. C'mon, it's Edutainment - it's not supposed to be good!
