    Our school looked at mymaths and mathlectics - the maths dept. chose mymaths. This works well alongside I am learning because that has content for every subject and what's good for me is I can see how long the students have spent revising PE and maths (my interests here!). The one thing which stands out with I am learning for me is the games which make the kids want to login and revise.

    iamlearning seems expensive to me at 3k per year...

    How does the mathletics purchasing work? Anyone know if you just need to buy enough licences for your concurrent connections? TIA...

    You need to buy 1 license per pupil with Mathletics as they each get their own logon's

    I think you can buy I am learning licenses per user at 10 each but we got a site license for 3k.
    Do mathletics cap the cost or do a site license?

    I can offer a perspective from both teacher and parent.

    Initially great excitement and interest, both at home and at school, followed by pretty rapid dropoff. Some classes do seem to maintain enthusiasm, but in others interest just dies.

    My own kids (primary aged) used it at home for two or three months after they got their school logon (which works at home also), but haven't logged on for ages. I just asked them now about school, and in 1 class its still going strong and in the other not at all.

    Fortunatley, subsciption is a year by year proposition, and it is worthwhile to try it in your school for a year.

    Weve had it for a few months,

    Interest has faigned a little bit but some kids still like to sit on it all the time,

    The biggest problem was the login, some of the younger ones couldnt remember them so I created a mini VB program and a AutoIT script which stored individuals usernames and password in their accounts and lets them automatically login from a link on the desktop

    Thought I'd tag this on the end of this thread...

    Taken from the Mathletics technical guide

    The best way to avoid any difficulties is to have your computer set to the Administrator log in when they are using Mathletics.
    It made me smile

    Excellent. I love the idea that giving students admin logins will AVOID difficulties.
