Like anything new in the classroom, the first day of using Mathspace can feel overwhelming for you and your students.  Follow these tips to help you get started!

  • Take a screenshot of this Syntax Cheat Sheet and print it out, or share the link to help you and your students navigate Mathspace.
  • For your first assignments, keep it simple!  Assign adaptive or custom tasks that include review material to lessen the cognitive load for students.
  • Reinforce behaviors you want to see, like students using hints and watching the videos when they get stuck.

Most of all, be patient with your students and yourself.  It takes time to learn something new, but it's well worth it in the end!

Follow our tips for the next few weeks in our follow-up article, Weeks 1-2: Gather Class Data.
