Mathematics Quiz in Cornish

One of the things I discussed in my talk last year at the Skians conference as possible future developments in software for Cornish is tools or games for learners.

In a first step in that direction, I have programmed a mathematics quiz which asks twenty questions of addition or subtraction, in a Python Tkinter GUI app (or at the command line), to help users practice recognising Cornish numbers.

After entering a number in the box, click on "Profya Gorthyp" or press Enter to submit the answer.

The computer checks the answer for correctness, then shows the time taken for you to submit it, number correct out of questions answered so far, and the total points. One point is awarded for a correct answer, and extra points for speed.

After 16 questions answered, 14 were correctly answered, and total points is 75.4

The end of the quiz after 20 questions.
The code is at my taklow-kernewek repository at Bitbucket. I will likely add a little more to it, including perhaps some different difficulty levels, and maybe some multiplication or division at some point.
