JumpStart 1st Grade (known as Jump Ahead Year 1 in the United Kingdom) is a personal computer game created by Knowledge Adventure in 1994 intended to teach a 1st grade curriculum. It was updated significantly in 2000 and was replaced by JumpStart Advanced 1st Grade in 2002, which was later replaced by JumpStart 3D Virtual World: Trouble in Town (Wikipedia).

This is the 1994 version (dated 1995). It is a mixed mode CD imaged as a bin/cue pair. Use these to burn a physical CD that contains the hybrid Mac/PC game partitions as well as the associated audio tracks.

I managed to get it to mount and get the cue file converted to audio files with this:

However, the game still won't work. I can't get past the opening logo (though I can still quit the game perfectly fine). What am I missing?

Essentially you have to burn a physical CD first. If you have Toast 7 for example you can do that by selecting the bin-cue option, dragging the cue file to the Toast window, and then burn a CD. If you have a PC then there are a number of options (e.g. ImgBurn). Once you have a CD you need a suitable older Mac that will run it. If you do not have that then you could fire up Toast, insert the CD, dismount the audio partition while retaining the game partition mounted, and then make an image of the game partition alone. You will be able to play the game in an emulator using that image, but will not get the sounds that rely on the audio partition.

I'm a little confused.
Can anyone give me step-by-step instructions on how to run this software?
