ROCKLEDGE, Fla., March 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- All Americans young and old should have a minimum knowledge of America's History and Geography. It is well broadcast that education is going in the wrong direction. For example, how many people does one know that can name and locate all the states and name their capitals? To help solve this problem, P.A. Mlecka of Rockledge, Florida, has published "Trivia Playing Cards U.S.A.," a deck of playing cards where cards represent state-by-state trivia that helps people learn or refresh their knowledge of U.S. History, Geography and more. The back of each card contains part of a map puzzle that, when assembled, makes a large map of the United States. Teachers say it makes students more interested in learning.
Mlecka, a computer software specialist and 1978 graduate of Florida State University, has developed educational software utilizing today's most advanced technological tools. "Smart Kids Classroom System" presents assignments both at the question and answer level in a random sequence, potentially eliminating cheating. It also provides automatic grading and maintains statistics of performance, thus saving time and allowing teachers to quiz more frequently.
The Mlecka family has been in the publishing business for over fifty years. They started in 1958 by publishing exam study guides to help U.S. Navy personnel pass tests for promotion, which lasted over twenty years. It was followed with the book "Famous People," a biographical book of birthdays, a history book in itself. It revealed that as of 1973, more famous people were born on July 4 than any other day. Other books were on genealogy of the "Pierce," "Frost," and "Blood" families. The last was a book on members and history of high school alumni.
Teachers, homeschoolers and others interested in helping education, for fund raising, or to become a sales rep. can obtain free samples of Trivia Cards by contacting the publisher at [email protected] or call 352-796-2089.
