How is Math Nation different from other resources?
In short, Math Nation is packed with resources to help you succeed. Our videos break down each featured problem in an informative and engaging way. And, with your accompanying workbook, you can follow along with each problem.
How do I log in to Math Nation?
Click the Enter button in the upper right-hand corner. Enter your school name and the username and password you use to access other computers/portals at your school. If you have forgotten those credentials, you can follow the prompt on the Login screen to retrieve them. If that doesn’t work and you still need help logging in, email us at help@MathNation.com or call us (888-608-MATH)!
Is there a mobile app?
Yes, mobile apps are free to download in the Apple and Google Play stores. We guarantee our Math Nation mobile app will work on all devices — yes, even devices up to six years old.
Our schools don’t have 1-to-1 devices and/or many of our students don’t have internet access at home. How can we use Math Nation?
There are many ways teachers can incorporate Math Nation into their teaching, even if classrooms have only one terminal or students’ access to the internet outside of school is limited. For example, they can show short clips to complement instruction to the class, or show a whole video to some students while working separately with a small group of students. Many teachers have had success with these approaches. We’ve curated a number of strategies from teachers in the Teacher Area (log in to check them out). You can also post this question in the Teacher Wall when you log in to see what other great ideas your colleagues from across the state have to offer.
To help your students who don’t have regular home internet access: We find that students often have a sibling, parent, or grandparent who has a smartphone or tablet and is willing to let them download the app for at-home use. The Math Nation app works on any iPhone, iPad, or Android device from the last six years. If students have a device but no internet at home, they can download videos at school or a fast food restaurant when they do have Wifi and watch them later offline.
How can I watch the videos if I don’t have access to the internet?
You can download videos on the Math Nation mobile app when Wifi is available (at school, the library, a fast-food restaurant, etc) and then viewed at a later time when students may not have access to the internet.
MY VIDEOS AREN’T LOADING. WHAT DO I DO?
Make sure you are using the latest versions of Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox to watch the Math Nation videos. These browsers work the best with Math Nation. If you see a red or yellow button appear as you watch the videos, your connection may be too slow and you may need to find a stronger internet connection. If you are still having issues with the videos, please email help@MathNation.com.
IS THERE AN ANSWER KEY FOR THE VIDEOS?
Watch the videos to see the solutions to each problem! You can also find solution videos to all of the Test Yourself! problems that you answer on the score report you get after you submit your answers.
