Help with using Maths Pathway
If students are unclear about any aspect of using the program they can ask their teachers. Most teachers introduce their students to different features and functions in the program as they go along, rather than covering everything right at the start. If you would like to find out about a particular feature, ask your child’s teacher.
Help with their work
If a student needs some extra help to complete a module they're struggling with, they can click the "I need help with this" button.
This outlines 4 options they can use to get help.
1. Check the answers on the worksheet
At the bottom of every worksheet are worked solutions for all the problems. Students can scroll down and may find the answers useful for working backwards to solve things they might be stuck on.
2. Watch the instructional video
Every worksheet has an instructional video which breaks down how to solve the problems in the worksheet.
3. Find a friend to ask
They can see if any other students in their class are working on the same module, or have completed it already. This gives them an idea of who else in their class they can ask for help and encourages collaborative learning among peers.
4. Ask your teacher for help
Once a student has attempted to help themselves properly, the teacher can of course provide explicit instruction and examples individually. Your child’s teacher will be expert in providing different explanations and additional resources where needed.
Help with maths that students might not know yet
Ideally, students will be aware that something isn’t making sense and will ask for help from the teacher on the spot. Teachers will be expert in providing different explanations and additional resources where needed.
Sometimes, students may not realise that they’re missing something until it’s too late and they are doing their maths test, leading them to answer some questions incorrectly. This is picked up by the system: the student is taken back to the old activity to have another go, and the teacher is alerted so that they can provide extra support if needed.
