Click any category in the index below to jump to questions relating to that topic. Click a question to see its answer. Quickly recalling math facts, instead of calculating them, frees up mental resources for higher-level operations.
When combined with the spaced repetition of problems, this efficiently develops recall. The three-second threshold is carefully selected to be long enough to type in a recalled answer but not long enough for the student to comfortably enter a counted or calculated answer. Students should have already learned the basic counting or calculating strategies, and be able to solve the problems without time pressure, before starting to practice an operation with XtraMath.
In XtraMath we use certain generic terms in a specific way. This glossary explains those terms. Both parent accounts and teacher accounts have access to the same student performance data, but they organize students in different ways:. Teacher accounts organize students into classes with end dates, making it easier to track the progress of many students, one school year at a time.
Teachers receive a weekly report that shows a summary of class activity. Parent accounts focus on the progress of just a few children. Parents receive a weekly report that includes a separate report for each child. For homeschoolers, we recommend a parent account. See the difference between parent and teacher accounts , above. XtraMath is used by students of all ages. The youngest students usually do not have an email address.
Because every XtraMath student account is linked with a parent or teacher account, we have students sign in with the email address of a linked parent or teacher account, along with their name and PIN number. Your child will be assigned a program based on their grade level, but you can change the program as you see fit. As long as your child is linked with your parent account, they can keep using XtraMath indefinitely — even when the school year ends or they change schools.
Your child signs in using your email address, and you can assign operations as appropriate. When you follow the instructions on the flyer, your child's existing account will be linked with their new class. Your child will get a new PIN number and may be assigned new operations by their teacher. If you have an XtraMath flyer from school: Sign up for a parent account. If you are a teacher, see the related question on students in two households. Sign in to your parent account.
The PIN number is shown at the top of the student report. Alternatively, go to the student sign-in page , and click on Forgot your PIN? You will receive an email with PINs for all children in your account. The next time the student signs in with Google, they will be prompted to enter their XtraMath student sign-in information, so they can connect their Google account to the correct XtraMath account.
The busy and absent buttons on the classroom sign-in page are toggles. Simply select the student on the classroom sign-in page and click the busy or absent button again. You may need to enter your email and password to confirm removal. This prevents students from removing classes. That grade level determines which mathematical operations the student will practice, as follows:. By default, a student begins by working on addition first, and proceeds to subtraction, multiplication, and division in order.
While the default assignment is usually appropriate, it may not be ideal for a specific student. A teacher or parent can change the assigned operations. Learn more about XtraMath programs. Xtramath is designed to help students transition from counting or calculating to recalling the basic arithmetic facts. The timer allows XtraMath to distinguish a recalled answer from a counted or calculated answer.
The default three-second mastery threshold is carefully selected to be long enough to type in a recalled answer but not long enough for the student to comfortably enter a counted or calculated answer. By request, we have added the ability to hide the timer, though student answers are still evaluated based on response time.
With less time pressure, students may not answer as quickly as they can, potentially resulting in lower scores or slower progress than they might otherwise achieve. For alternatives to hiding the timer, see XtraMath goes too fast for my child. XtraMath works like intelligent flash cards. By showing an answer, and then asking the same problem again after a short interval, the program encourages students to recall answers rather than calculate them. This is the purpose of XtraMath, and is why you cannot turn off this feature.
Students respond differently to seeing their mastery score — some are inspired, but others can become discouraged or frustrated. However, we do give students plenty of feedback, including answer icons and the mastery matrix. Parents or teachers may share mastery scores or progress graphs with students at their discretion.
We recommend that students do XtraMath only once per day, on as many days as possible. Also, note that students get a progress quiz only at the beginning of the first session of the day. To complete XtraMath for the day, a student must complete a few two-minute activities, and it is best for the student to complete all activities in one sitting. A student should not start XtraMath if they have less than ten minutes available.
In any event, a student should at least finish their current activity before leaving the computer. If they leave before finishing all required activities, they may sign in again later to complete XtraMath for the day. XtraMath does not yet have specific accommodations for students with special needs. Some special education teachers do use XtraMath with their students, but needs and circumstances vary, so we cannot make individualized recommendations.
We welcome suggestions and feedback on how XtraMath might work better for students with special needs. If your child is using XtraMath at school, please check with the teacher before making any changes. We recommend students master operations in their natural order: Also, it is important that students not attempt to memorize arithmetic facts before they have a good conceptual understanding of the operation. With those caveats in mind, a parent or teacher can change the operations assigned to a student.
See What is an XtraMath program? If a student has not finished all operations appropriate for their grade then they should be assigned a new program that includes any incomplete operations. See What operations will my student practice? A student that has completed all operations appropriate for their grade does not need to continue using XtraMath. However, some teachers want to keep their entire class engaged with XtraMath. You can challenge students that have completed all operations at the three-second level by assigning them custom programs with shorter answer thresholds or expanded problem sets.
Learn how to change a program. Are there more operations e. If so, adding a new operation is usually the best choice, but ensure that the student has a good conceptual understanding of that operation. Learn more about XtraMath programs , and how to change the operation that a student is assigned.
Teachers are able to restart student programs. Any progress recorded in operations not in the current program will be maintained. The program assigned to a student determines which operations the student will practice in XtraMath.
A program may include all four operations addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division , or simply focus on one specific operation e. Students work on one operation at a time until mastery, before moving on to the next operation. Finally, the program determines the threshold.
By default, students have three seconds to enter a correct answer for it to be considered a fluent response. Custom programs can reduce the threshold to two seconds, or even one-and-a-half seconds. These programs are an additional challenge for students that have completed operations at the three-second level. Custom programs can also increase the threshold to six seconds — for more on this, see XtraMath goes too fast for my child.
These programs proceed directly from one placement quiz to the next, without waiting for students to master each operation. Mixing operations introduces artificial errors — applying the wrong operation — that interfere with accurate measurement of true fluency for individual operations.
For that reason we do not mix operations. For additional advice, see XtraMath goes too fast for my child. We have endeavored to make XtraMath work well for as many students as possible. However, it may not be the right solution for your child. If your child continues to struggle with XtraMath, please consult your child's teacher for effective alternatives. XtraMath is designed to measure what basic math facts students can recall , not what they can calculate.
The three second mastery threshold is carefully selected — it is long enough that a relatively slow typist can enter a recalled answer, but short enough to exclude most counted or calculated responses.
If you increase the threshold then you are no longer measuring recall. For maximum effectiveness, XtraMath adjusts to each student and has them practice near the limit of their abilities. This might be uncomfortable for some students. If a student is frustrated to the point where XtraMath is becoming counterproductive, you can try a custom program with a six-second threshold. This will increase the fluent answer threshold from three to six seconds, and the answer timeout from ten to twenty seconds.
Because a six-second threshold does not accurately measure fluency, we recommend this threshold be used only as necessary to build confidence with an operation. Hiding the timer is another option — this does not change the threshold, but rather hides the animated timer element during student activities. Learn how to change operations or hide the timer.
Your child can turn off those images during the practice activity. Use the button in the lower corner of the practice activity to toggle the teacher images on or off.
This setting will be remembered the next time the student signs in, regardless of computer or device being used. You will receive a weekly PDF copy of your reports via email, unless you opt out by changing your email preferences.
You can also export class or student data for custom reports or analysis. The mastery score should be interpreted as a completion percentage for an operation. For example, a mastery score of 75 means the student is about three quarters of the way toward finishing the operation.
It is common for students to start out with a mastery score well below 30 and take several weeks to finish an operation. Mastery scores are based solely on the results of quiz activities, and are not affected by performance during practice activities. In order to get a mastery score of , a student needs to have answered every question correctly, within the mastery threshold , two out of the last three times they have attempted it.
Each point on the graph represents a day that the student did a quiz in XtraMath. Remind the student to type in answers quickly, but not so quickly that they make mistakes, and to never guess at answers nor enter incorrect answers on purpose. The student is likely answering most questions correctly, but is answering some questions slower than the mastery threshold allows. This can be confirmed by looking at the mastery matrix lower on the student report — yellow squares indicate facts that are being answered correctly but are not yet mastered.
XtraMath allows for occasional mistakes, but if a student gets too many mistakes their score may decrease. A decreased mastery score can bounce back within a few XtraMath sessions if a student restores their focus. Learn more about how the mastery score is calculated , and see our tips and suggestions for frustrated students. XtraMath can export student data in. You don't need to transfer students. XtraMath is designed to make it as easy as possible for teachers, and we avoid requiring you to collect and enter XtraMath account information from your students.
When you create your new class, add all students as new, and send home parent flyers. When parents follow the flyer instructions, their children's previous accounts will be merged into your new class. The only exception is if you are looping — keeping the same class from one year to the next.
In that case you can simply extend the end date of the class by a year. To understand how students take turns in a classroom setting, watch our XtraMath in the Classroom and Classroom Setup videos. If many classes use the same computers or tablets, it may be simplest for each teacher to share their class es with a computer lab administrator. Then, only the lab administrator will need to perform the classroom sign-in setup procedure.
Learn more about how XtraMath remembers your network. When you add a student, the grade level you specify determines which operations they will be assigned. If you specify a different language, when the student signs in at school they will see videos and activities in that language regardless of what language the rest of the class is using see How do I handle a multilingual classroom?
Print two copies of the student's parent flyer and send one home to each household. Each parent that follows the flyer instructions will have a separate parent account linked with the same student account. Only transfer students that are switching classes in the middle of the school year or that were inadvertently added to the wrong class.
See the question about transferring students from a previous school year. In order to transfer a student into your class, you will need their XtraMath sign-in information or their enrollment code.
Once the student is added to their new class, they can be removed from their previous class — or just remain shared in both classes. You may move a student from one class to another by transferring a student. Student accounts that are no longer linked with any teacher or parent account are periodically purged. If you accidentally remove a student, contact us promptly and we may be able to reinstate the student account. If the end date has passed and your class no longer appears in your teacher account, contact us and we can restore the archived class.
If you share a class with another teacher, they will have unrestricted access. You can also share individual students with another teacher. Another teacher can add one of your students to their class. See how to transfer a student. You will need to provide the other teacher with your email address, and the name and PIN that the student uses to sign in. The student will also remain in your class, unless you explicitly remove them.
At this time, XtraMath cannot populate class rosters through outside services like Clever, but we are happy to import classes for you. Clever has a walkthrough on how administrators can do this.

If students share devices or are rarely logged in to their Google accounts, sticking with classroom sign-in is simplest and facilitates students taking turns.
If students use Chromebooks or are otherwise typically logged in to their Google accounts, it may be convenient for them to sign in with their Google credentials on the student sign-in page. The first time they will need to also provide their XtraMath credentials, but after that it will work automatically. When the student signs in at school via the classroom sign-in page , their XtraMath session will be in their activity language, regardless of which language their classmates are using.
We are happy to import accounts for you. Please specify the name of the gradebook app or student information system that you will be using to export student data. We do not want kids whose families cannot afford smartphones, or whose schools cannot afford tablets, to have an inferior educational opportunity. Therefore, the essentials of the program function in the same way on the website as in the mobile app.
