Funnels and Buckets

Way back when, I played this educational game called "Funnels and Buckets". I remember this being kind of fun when I was a kid, so I thought Ben might like playing it. Tonight I decided to code my own version from memory and with the help of a screenshot of the original version. I've never coded a game in Java, but I had some ideas of how to separate the update/model logic from the actual display. In about two hours this is what I came up with:
Right now it doesn't increase your level and it only gives you one point for each correct answer. This will most likely change to some scoring based on level.

I think, that you commit an error. I suggest it to discuss.

I am really old. I ordered it for my kids from reasonable software. My kids arent having kids yet but they are not too far behind you. Great replacement for the multipication and division sheets I used to get in grade school. If you are working on it. I would suggest being able to do each one seperately (add, sub, mult,div) as well as mix up. also beable to start at a higher level if you have different aged children. Also need to sugggest to get a 10 key pad for all people with laptops. Would be a huge hit. Think the user group is pretty big.
