Have you seen the new MyMaths?
Did you know that there are 4,515,598 students using MyMaths? That’s more than the population of Croatia! Well, Christmas came early for these students and their teachers as, on Christmas Eve, we moved every MyMaths user, as well as their 51,314,124 results, over to the brand new site.
So, what’s changed? In response to feedback, the new Assessment Manager has been streamlined to allow teachers to organise student data, allocate tasks and view results all in just a few clicks. It’s now even easier to give an extension to individual students – simply click on the task, select the student you wish give an extension and select the new due date. You can plan ahead and set homeworks in advance, and the filters allow you to easily drill down to specific results, all of which are downloadable.
The student experience has been improved as well, with the addition of a new portal for Primary pupils and an updated Secondary Student Portal. The Secondary Student Portal has a new look as well as the brand new feature, MyFeed. This live feed allows students to stay up to date with any new activity on their account, including new homeworks, results or teacher feedback. And then, of course, there are the ever popular games. Try out Escape to the City – already one of the most visited pages on the site.
And it’s not just the platform that’s new. We have recently published a collection of new lessons and homeworks. Find out more about the new content for the 2014 Primary and KS3 curricula on our blog.
For more information on the changes, visit www.mymaths.co.uk/help to view a range of video walkthroughs, download the user guides and view the FAQs. You can also follow @OxfordPrimaryUK and @OxfordEdMaths on Twitter for hints and tips.
We hope you enjoy using the new site!
