My Maths is online Maths resources, lessons, revision and homework exercises. Every child at Sevenoaks Primary has access to and are encouraged to use My Maths either via the School login or from Year 4 upwards via their own personal login.
Guidance for Parents
If your child has been registered on to the maths website www.mymaths.co.uk this should help them to structure their maths work and enable you to see how they are progressing. Your child has already been given a letter explaining how to access the materials at home.
To get to the materials you first need to log on to the site.
Go to www.mymaths.co.uk and login at the top of the homepage.
Please ask your childs teacher for our school login and our school password
Each of the lessons in the library has an Online Homework. Your child will be directed to do these tasks by their teacher. On the next page your child should enter their private login and password in the pink 'My Portal' box. These are available from their teacher. MyMaths.co.uk will then remember who they are and automatically log them in to the tasks.
If they have been set a task by their teacher the task will appear under MyTasks. They 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.
You can see all their results 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!
