Is there anything I can do?
The number one thing you can do as a teacher is to ensure that your students can access Live Mathletics. That means, if you’ve assigned any curriculum activities, UPF or PSR work, it may prevent them from accessing Live Mathletics and the World Maths Day platform. To make sure this doesn’t happen (and keep the assigned activities), simply head into the ‘Assign’ area of Mathletics and make sure student access is set to ‘Student Open Access’.
