Your child will now be given some Maths homework on a online software called MyMaths. This has homework set, from the teacher, to reinforce what has been taught in the lessons that week. There is also an online lesson for your child to look back at if they are struggling with their homework.
When you go to the MyMaths homepage you will need to log in using your child’s school username and password. You will then see some more boxes labelled ‘My Portal’ where you can put in your child’s username and password. In here you should see your child’s 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.
Your child will have been sent home a letter with their login and password. If you need another letter, please contact the office or your Maths teachers. Thank you.
Guidance with MyMaths for Ipads/Tablets
MyMaths requires the use of "Flash" to work and iPads and some tablets don't have flash built into the devices web browser.
Currently there isn't an official App on the App Store, or Google Play store for MyMaths, but there is a work around it you want to give it a go. Please be aware that this work around is quite fiddly, especially on smaller devices like Smartphones.
1. Go to the App store or Google Play Store.
2. Search for "Puffin Academy" and download it. This is a free app!
3. Once downloaded, open the Puffin Academy app.
4. Search for ‘mymaths’ in the search bar, this can be located at the top right hand side of the screen.
5. Select ‘mymaths’. You should then see a screen that contains a description of mymaths.
6. To the right of the mymaths icon you should see the option: ‘go to www.mymaths.co.uk Tap this and mymaths should open inside the Puffin Academy app. Mymaths should then work as it does on aPC.
7. To use mymaths in future, simply load up the Puffin Academy app. If the mymaths login in screen is not displayed, repeat steps 4 – 6.
The reason why this work, is due to Puffin web browser having flash built into it, allowing MyMaths to run correctly.
