Is Adobe Flash Player Required for Woot Math?

Most of the Woot Math content is HTML5, and therefore, does not require the Adobe Flash Player. However, some of the older Woot Math activities do require Adobe Flash Player, as they have embedded videos and activities that are reliant on Flash still. For the 20202-2021 school year, those activities will no longer rely on Flash.

To enable Flash on your students’ computer, have them follow these steps (these steps are for Chrome).

When an activity requires Flash, you will see something like the following.

Click on the lock icon at the top of the URL bar, then click on site settings.

Find the Flash entry, and change from Blocked to Enabled for wootmath.com

Then close that browser tab, and return to Woot Math. You might need to restart the browser, and then the lesson will load.

 

Woot Math Summer Academy

Did you know that on average, kids lose over 2 ½ months of their hard-earned math skills over the summer? If you have a kid in elementary, middle, or high school in need of some extra support with math, we can help. Woot Math Summer Academy was specifically designed to help your kid crush the summer slide, and start the next school year off right.

Woot Math Summer Academy has specialized programs for kids entering grades 5, 6, 7, 8, and 9. Designed in conjunction with leading math-education researchers, let us show you how we can help to bring joy and confidence back to mathematics. (We work with leading researchers, but we also have a lot of fun. We promise. After all, Woot is in our name!)

Your kid will work 1:1 with a classroom math teacher anytime, anywhere. All sessions are online, and leverage Woot Math’s web-based learning platform, which includes video and chat, an interactive whiteboard, custom materials, and proven adaptive practice, as well as one of the best math teachers available!

Woot Math has been working with leading classroom teachers and researchers for years. With grants from the National Science Foundation and the Department of Education, we know where students most often struggle, and how to help them move forward quickly and effectively. For the first time ever, we’re now offering this proven, research-backed solution directly to your family. Woot Math Summer Academy will help build the confidence and support your kid needs to be ready for anything. Including Algebra. Woot!

Get started today, as spots are limited for the summer session. https://www.wootmath.com/summer-academy

My assignments are not showing up for my students

My assignments are not showing up for my students

If your classroom assignments do not show up for your students, you can use these steps to resolve the issue:

Step 1

Make sure your students are logging into Woot Math via the student dashboard.  https://www.wootmath.com/student/login

Step 2

Your students should see all of their assignments after they login. Their dashboard should look something like this:

Sample Student Dashboard with Assignments

Step 3

If your student dashboard looks like the above image, but the new assignment isn’t appearing, check the Assignments tab on your teacher dashboard. The assignments tab will show all of your active assignments (you can also view ended assignments, archived assignments, manage your assignments, and more). It should look something like this:
Sample Teacher Assignment Dashboard

Step 4

If your new assignment is listed on this page, next make sure that the student(s) in question have been assignment the new assignment. Since it is possible to make an assignment only to individual students, sometimes not all students will have the same assignments. To check this, click on the down arrow next to the assignment name:

Sample Assignment Details

In this case, we see that 8 students have not been given that assignment yet.

Step 5

If you want to add those additional students, simply press the “Add Students” button and select the additional students that you want to send the assignment to:
Add additional students to a running assignment

Step 6

Now the next time that student logs into Woot Math, they should see the new assignment!

How to play an assignment as a teacher?

There are a variety of ways to play as a student.

Formative Assessments

To run a quiz, exit ticket, warm up, or formative assessment as a student, you can:

  • Preview an assignment using the Preview button
  • Run the assignment in either self-paced or teacher-led mode. In either case, you can run the assignment with either a class roster or by typing your name when you join

Adaptive Learning

To play through Adaptive Learning as a student, you will first need to create a sample student account. To do this, create a new student called Teacher from the Manage Roster tab on the teacher dashboard. You can either add the new student account to an existing class, or you can create a new class and then add a new student to the new class.

You can also use the Interactive Problem Bank to quickly share the hands-on, model-rich Adaptive Learning problems using a projector or interactive whiteboard. You can also explore specific topics or problem types to review scope & sequence.

Where should my students start with Woot Math Adaptive Learning?

Woot Math’s Adaptive Learning provides students in grades 3-8+ with the foundational materials that they need to be successful with mathematics. There are generally two ways in which teachers implement Woot Math in their classroom, either as a supplement to the core curriculum, or as an intervention or remediation for students that need a little extra assistance on these challenging topics.

Woot Math was designed to support both scenarios. More details about each are below. If you have questions on the best implementation for your students, please review our case studies to see how other teachers are implementing Woot Math. And always feel free to contact us if you have specific questions.

Grade Level Supplement (Grades 3-7)

Woot Math is a grade level supplement for foundational material (fractions, decimal, ratios, negative numbers, and more). Woot Math enables students to succeed by helping them build conceptual understanding of the most challenging concepts in rational numbers. Woot Math uses multiple representations and leverages interactive models to help shore up these critical areas, so they become ready for Algebra and beyond. Implementation guidelines are available for grades 3-5 and grades 6-7.

Intervention and Remediation (Grades 6-8+)

For students in grades 6+, Woot Math is used for intervention and remediation to ensure your students develop a strong foundation of rational numbers (fractions, decimals, ratios, rates and proportions, negative numbers, etc) so they can be successful in all types of mathematics. Woot Math enables students to succeed by building conceptual understanding of key rational number topics. View the implementation guidelines for grades 6-8.
