Using Math-Whizz

Do I need to purchase a subscription for each child?

Yes, each child needs their own subscription in order to use Math-Whizz. Math-Whizz is personalized to each child, so sharing an account will affect the Tutor’s ability to deliver lessons tailored to a child’s specific needs.

How are credits earned?
Each lesson is worth up to 15 credits, while each exam is worth up to 30 credits. You can earn up to 10 credits for beating your original score and time in Replay mode. Credits can be spent in the Whizz Shop.
The same lesson keeps being delivered, how can I fix this?
You need to clear your web browser’s ‘cache’ or ‘history.’ This is sometimes referred to as ‘temporary internet files’ and are often found under the preferences or options menu in your browser.
How often should Math-Whizz be used?
Math-Whizz is most effective when children use Tutor mode for 60 minutes per week, in 3-4 sessions of 15-20 minutes each. Students needing an extra boost can benefit from using Tutor mode for up to 90 minutes each week.
How is usage time calculated in Math-Whizz?
Only the time spent in Tutor Mode and Replay is counted as usage. The tutorial part of the lesson is not counted as usage, the time starts when the student is asked the first question in each lesson. Students must complete the entire lesson or test for the usage to be recorded and displayed in their report.
What grades does Math-Whizz cover?
Math-Whizz covers content generally delivered in grades K-8. Subscribers have access to all content.
My child is not reading yet, can they still use Math-Whizz?
Yes, all lessons aimed at those K-2 have an audio component and reading comprehension is not necessary.
How does Math-Whizz personalize instruction?
Math-Whizz uses an initial placement test and then assesses students consistently within lessons and at specific checkpoints within the curriculum. Our continuous assessment model enables Math-Whizz to truly individualize instruction for every student, adapting our lessons, scaffolding, pacing based and help on each student’s unique needs. As students work through their curriculum, Math-Whizz responds immediately – keeping students on track and progressing.

If, in relation to the premium Service, Math-Whizz Tutoring Plus, all of the following conditions are satisfied, namely:

  1. a period of at least one year has elapsed since you paid an annual subscription or, if you are initially a monthly subscriber, since you paid the first monthly subscription;
