Timer: The default setting is On. Select Off to have unlimited time to submit your answer.
Sounds: The default setting is On. Select Off to disable all game sounds.
Questions: Choose between "Fahrenheit to Celsius" and "Celsius to Fahrenheit" questions.
Rounding: By default, "Closest" rounding option is selected. This means that if you are playing the "Fahrenheit to Celsius" game, you will have to round the exact answer to the closest whole number and then select that answer on the thermometer. When playing the "Celsius to Fahrenheit" game, it gets a bit more complicated. In this game mode, you'll have to round to the closest, whole, even number since the Fahrenheit thermometer shows only even numbers. So if the question is: "Convert 6 Celsius to Fahrenheit, the exact answer is 42.8 F and you'll have to round it to 42 since there's no 43 on the Fahrenheit thermometer.
If you want to make the game a bit easier, you can select "Within 1 degree" or "Within 2 degrees" rounding option. Then your answer will be marked correct if it's within 1 degree or within 2 degrees of the correct answer.
Mode: by default, you're in "game mode." If you want to make the game easier, you can select "Training" mode. In the training mode, you can see the current value of the thermometer below between the minus and plus icons.
All the settings will revert to default, and your score will reset if you refresh your browser.
