Help for parents
- How do I find the homework my child has been set?
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.
- What are the technical specifications required by the MyMaths website?
As MyMaths is a fully online resource you will need nothing but an Internet connection and an up-to-date web browser with inbuilt Flash, or a recent version of Flash installed on your computer. MyMaths supports all the major browsers such as Internet Explorer, Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox, but please make sure your Chrome or Firefox browsers are up-to-date and your Internet Explorer is version 9 or higher. Most Android tablets and mobile devices should be able to access the website using the Chrome or Firefox browser apps (among others), but users of the iPad and other Apple devices will have to use the free Puffin Academy app. We understand it’s important for MyMaths to work on a range of tablet devices, including iPads. To get content to you as soon as possible, we will be launching fully iPad compatible resources in a phased approach during 2015.
- Have you updated your internet browser?
Please note that MyMaths will no longer support Internet Explorer 9 and 10 from January 2016 in line with Microsoft’s Internet Explorer support policy announced on 7th August 2014.
