Half-price 2019 Deal
Creative Maths is offering a half-price deal for subscription for the rest of 2019. The deal applies to teacher subscription, now $55 per teacher, and site licences. Contact Shane for details or a quote.
For the rest of 2019 we are offering half price subscription until the end of the year. The deal applies to teacher subscription and site licences. Teacher subscription is now $55 for each teacher. Site licences are also half-price and will generally work out to be $5-$7 per student.
Site licenses offer access for a number of students and teachers at a single price. Pricing depends on student numbers and levels. For a 50+ student site license the cost generally works out to be $9-$13 per student.
An 80-student site license allows free teacher access for any number of teachers. Smaller site licenses restrict the number of free teacher accounts.
Site licences can be adapted to meet the needs of your school. For example, if you have students taking only a few statistics standards.
All teachers have access to the teacher materials. They may assign activities to students for homework or in class, or work through the material as a class. Resources available include videos, databases, quizzes, step-by-step, notes, writing guides and worksheets, including all scholarship materials. Teachers may print out and distribute notes, writing guides and worksheets. Teachers can monitor their student's progress on the site. Teachers also have access to the forums and teaching help.
Students have individual access to the materials at home and at school, including scholarship materials. They can watch the videos, access databases and work through quizzes and step-by-steps individually. Students also have direct access to the notes and writing guides. Students can track their own progress and earn badges.
This option for the site licence allows your students to watch StatsLC videos through your LMS. This avoids the need for students to have StatsLC accounts.
This option requires your school to embed the videos in your LMS. We provide the details for this. Under this option we cannot offer viewing statistics on a per student basis. But you are likely to have that information through your school’s LMS.
Please contact Dr Nic for more information.
