Guidelines for My Maths
My Maths is an educational, yet fun website where lessons are clearly laid out and the topics fit with our current curriculum. It can be used by parents and children looking to develop their current level of mathematics.
Pupils are given tasks by their maths teacher on a weekly basis; they also have the opportunity to revise a topic before completing their tasks. Parents have the facility to track their children’s progress on the website, whilst the children can select optional tasks to practise their skills.
The website is www.mymaths.co.uk.
School Login is: briary
School password is: purple
The children will be given their own user name and password for their individual homework.
When the teacher sets them a task it will appear under MyTasks. The children must complete both pages of the Online Homework for the scores to be saved to the database. Other activities may also appear under MyActivities. If no lessons are appearing then you have a Pop-Up Blocker installed. You MUST allow to use Pop-Ups.
If you want to see their results, you can see them by clicking MyResults and track their results by Level by clicking MyLevels. There is a system of Traffic Lights for each of the Tasks to indicate how successful your child has been.
If a green light appears next to a topic, they have good skills in this area.
If an amber light appears they still have difficulties.
If a red light appears they need to go back and relearn the topic. Try the Lesson again or get them to ask their teacher for help.
It will also tell you which questions your child could and couldn’t do, how many times they have attempted the worksheet and when they last tried it.
You can also find tasks and lessons using the MyMaths.co.uk Library. Click Library on the left of the screen and you will see Number, Algebra, Shape and Data appear. Click on one of these titles, select a topic and click an activity. The Level of the lesson is shown as a pink number on the list. You will have the option to complete a lesson or an Online Homework. Only Online Homework tasks are recorded. You can help your child by encouraging them to visit the library and work through the lessons at their level. If you have time, you might want to work through some of the topics with them. The lessons are clear and easy to follow.
An effective strategy is to pretend that you have forgotten how to do it and ask them to show you how. Putting them in the position of “teacher” is good for their confidence and gets them to talk about their thinking.
You should also be clear about the support that the school offers. Please see your child’s maths teacher if you have any more questions.
Finally, please be aware that if you login with your child’s details then anything you do will appear on their score sheet. Don’t just go in and play as you may create results which your child’s teacher will think are theirs!
