The Textbooks feature is the best way to browse Mathspace content as a teacher. From here, you can also assign tasks for your students to work on and lessons for your students to read.

  1. Click on the textbook icon on the left panel to open up the Textbooks feature.

  2. Click on the textbook name to select your textbook. You will be able to view all textbooks that your school has access to.

  3. Click on a topic name to select your topic. Topics are broad areas of study.

  4. Click on a subtopic name to select your subtopic. Subtopics contain lessons and questions, and are aligned to curriculum outcomes.

Alternatively, you can also search directly for a subtopic using the search bar. You can also search directly for a specific curriculum outcome.

There are two tabs once a subtopic is selected - Lesson and Assignable Questions.


Clicking on Lesson will bring up the Mathspace lesson for the subtopic that explains key concepts, often using diagrams and occasionally interactives to build engagement and understanding.

Clicking on "Assign to students" will bring up the assign task flyout, to assign to your class or with specific students. It will then appear on the Student Dashboard as a lesson they can read.

We will track and report:

  • the time students spent on the lesson page, and

  • the students' scroll depth.

Assignable Questions

Clicking back into Assignable Questions (which is the default) will display the list of questions available to be assigned to students.

You can view each question in more detail by expanding it, which will display the difficulty of the question and the estimated time it should take to complete it, as well as an option to try the question yourself as the student would - this will take you to the Student Workbook.

Clicking on "Create Adaptive Task" will bring you to the final stages of creating an Adaptive Task, where the subtopic is already preselected.

Clicking on "Add all questions" or on a "+" button will add questions to the cart for the creation of a Custom Task.
