During year 6, we will be using mymaths for different homework tasks. The children have a school and unique personal log in – they are in the front of the homework books that children will be bringing home.
Below is a help guide for students and parents.
Help for students and parents Q. How do I view my homework?
When you go to the MyMaths website, you will need to log in using your school username and password.
You will then see another box labelled ‘My Portal’ where you can put in your personal username and password. In here you should see your homework on the first screen you come to. If you can’t see it, then make sure you are on your homework page by clicking the ‘My Homework’ tab on the left hand side of the page.
As you complete your homework, remember to click ‘Mark it’ as this gives instant feedback and shows your teacher that it has been completed.
Your child will already have been issued their own log in and you should have received a parent letter containing their personal details. If not, please speak to their class teacher who will be able to help you. Q. What type of computer do I need to have to use MyMaths?
MyMaths is used completely online, so you don’t need any special computer equipment or software to use it. All you need is an Internet connection and a web browser like Internet Explorer, Firefox or Google Chrome. To make sure it works correctly you should also check that you have updated your web browser (for Internet Explorer please make sure it is version 10 or above) and that you have installed an up-to-date version of Flash. You can also use Android tablets and mobile devices for MyMaths, but if you are using an iPad
then you will need to download the free Puffin Academy app in order to access the MyMaths website.
As well as children being able to access their homework, there are also a number of online maths games to help consolidate their understanding.
