Why I added a bell sound when a player gets the right answer in my math game

Whenever a player gets a math fact correct in the game I'm working on, the game will play a little chime. I wrote about how to use Stimulus JS to achieve this result here. The reason for this feature is twofold.

It makes the game fun. I use an old school sound from a beloved video game I used to play as a kid. It's a really nice sound and a legal liability.

The game is meant for parents and their kids. While I enjoy watching my kids play and encouraging them as they go, I also like to let them practice without a high level of direct supervision.

The chime is a notification for busy parents that their child is practicing and getting answers correct. If more than a few seconds go by without a delightful chime, it might be time to check in on the kiddo.

If you hear ding, ding, ding... well then you are hearing the sound of learning.
