Overview

This guide to the MathsOnline Teacher Administration Centre outlines the tools available to teachers to help them get the most out of the MathsOnline program.


Isn't MathsOnline just another new system I have to learn?

So many of the new systems or processes introduced into schools, though they provide some new benefit or service, add yet another layer of administration the teacher must perform.

At MathsOnline, our goal is to actually reduce your workload.

As teachers ourselves, we aim to provide you with simple, intuitive software that removes some of the more laborious and repetitive tasks teachers must perform.


How will MathsOnline reduce my workload?


Use MathsOnline to set and mark homework.

It takes about one minute to set a homework task for a class. The MathsOnline system will then inform the students, direct them to the homework, mark the homework, and at the end produce a report for the teacher.


Use MathsOnline's reporting tools.

MathsOnline collects data on every lesson and task the student completes, and generates valuable information the teacher can use in a variety of ways:

  • The student progress reports are perfect as feedback for parent-teacher meetings.
  • The class reports rank students within the class.
  • The detailed student reports, which lists results for individual lessons, makes it easy to identify students' weaknesses and gaps in knowledge.

Create your own curriculum.

Do you have a class or student that requires an individualised curriculum? Using MathsOnline's Curriculum Designer it takes just a few minutes to create a curriculum packed with resources and activities, saving hours of up-front programming and even more time in ongoing monitoring and administrative work.

Student List Template (.xls)

Method 1 Recommended

Send to MathsOnline a new and complete list of students and teachers. This will overwrite all existing students and teachers.

Advantages:
  • Greatly simplifies rollover process. Download, populate and return the spreadsheet to MathsOnline and we will process your student and teacher rolls for you in one business day.
  • Removes existing student results so students start the new year with a clean slate.
Disadvantages:
  • After MathsOnline processes your school roll, new logins and passwords will need to be distributed to students and teachers.

Method 2

Using the tools within the Teachers’ Area, manually roll over teachers, classes and students.

Advantages:
  • Students and teachers keep their logins, passwords, and results.
Disadvantages:
  • A more tedious rollover method, as each class needs to be rolled over manually, students that have left must be identified and deleted, and students and teachers entering the school need to be added.
