Math Experiments Revisited

I fixed my Math Experiments app to accommodate for larger screens. (This is long overdue) Nowadays Android phones are at least the size of the Nexus or the Samsung Galaxy. Also fixed a few issues. I also added the pen-and-pencil arithmetic methods from Visual Math Quiz in there. Why can a live teacher teach you math (and other subjects) better than you reading text alone? One reason is teachers can do visual demonstrations better than dead text. Also, need another example for adding fractions or solving a linear system of equations? just punch in different numbers. Dead text can't do that.

Visual Math Quiz revisited

Fixed to display better for bigger phones... it seems Android phones are converging to one size: the size of the Samsung Galaxy III and Nexus. Added more config options: time per question, number of questions and which operations to quiz.

The arithmetic demos were originally written in now-so-passe Java applets. It has evolved quite a bit.
