How Can We Help?

(G) Students access the Online Tutor at: https://play.rocketmath.com

< All Topics

Those who use Clever or ClassLink SSO don’t have to worry about this.  Your students have an easier way it. But for everyone else: you may have noticed there were no games at the admin site where you’ve been setting things up.  You are right.  No fun and games there.  The fun is all at another site: https://play.rocketmath.com

Bookmark this site or make a button for it.

PLEASE in self-defense teach your students how to bookmark the site.  Otherwise they’re going to ask you to enter the url over and over again.

The first thing they will see will be this “enter’ screen.  Students just hit the “enter!” button and it sort of wakes up the game, so it knows to ask for the login information.

Students enter Username, Passcode and Account Number

Next the login screen comes up.  Students must enter their username, passcode, and Account Number to login and play.  (Some early adopting customers may have a name there–that’s OK.) Students have to enter all three pieces of information right, so they may need some help in the beginning.

If you aren’t using your account number, we recommend that you change to that. It is shorter and it is unique.  The owner of the account can go back and edit what is in the the Customer Account field in “My Profile” if it something other than your Customer Account.  BEWARE!  If you change that, instantly all the students will have to change what they enter, so you have to let them know.  (Maybe re-do the Parent letters?)

The owner can also edit student’s usernames and passcodes in your dashboard on the row with their info.  I wouldn’t throw in the towel immediately, but there comes a point where it’s smarter to make things easier.

You can also change their Learning Track from the Actions button at the end of that same row.

Encourage students to watch the BASIC TRAINING video.

By the way, here’s a link to the BASIC TRAINING-video I made for them.  (It does not go to YouTube!)  Encourage your students to view it–maybe when they have to take a battery recharge.  It is 9 minutes long. You can see the BASIC TRAINING link in the bottom right corner of the Start page, before or after they play.  In the video, Dr. Don speaks from Mission Control with encouragement and valuable tips on to how to play the game.

 

Ask students to complete their session.

Students should continue playing until the session is completed. They cannot play any longer than the scheduled ten minutes, but they should keep going as long as they can. When they have completed their session they will see this screen.  Encourage them to show you this screen BEFORE they log out, so you can confirm that they did complete a full session.  Completing sessions is important for them to make progress and learn the facts.
