At Math Project, we pride ourselves on offering our parents responsive and excellent service. At this stage, here are some things you need to know about your new journey with us:

What to Prepare in Advance:

1) Please read the welcome email in it’s entirety.

2) In order to allow students to project their writing on screen we use a platform called ‘Conceptboard’. It is an interactive white board that allows the student and teacher to write on it simultaneously.

Equipment Options for Online Study Sessions:

Here are the equipment options that we recommend as you prepare for the online sessions. This will be extremely effective in facilitating an interactive experience in the online classroom:

  • OPTION A – Any writing tablet (e.g. ipad)
  • OPTION B – Any touch-screen laptop or tablet (such iPad, A Samsung Tablet, etc).
  • OPTION C – A cellphone
  • OPTION D- A non-touchscreen laptop with a mouse or trackpad

Some important considerations:

  1. Any touch screen device will work for Conceptboard notes. However, OPTION C & D should be the last resort if A & B are not accessible.
  2. Stylus is recommended for Option A, B & C. Alternatively, the student can use fingers to write.
  3. It is ideal for students to have two separate devices. One will be used for the video meeting and the other for writing on Conceptboard.

How to Ensure Your Child’s Progress Once Enrolled

  • Please ensure to review the updated performance report that you receive from us by email within 24 hours of the Math Project’s study session.

Please note that Math Project will be closed for the following four weeks in 2023. The homework will still be due at the regular time, prior to the holiday week.

As our technology-system is Google-based, if you do not have a Gmail address, you will lose access to your child’s performance report every two weeks. In order to avoid the hassle of re-requesting access, we strongly recommend you create a Gmail address and set up mail forwarding to your regular non-Gmail email.

Mail Forwarding Steps:

1. Go to settings on your gmail.com email, the icon is located on the top right corner of the screen.

2. Click on ‘see all settings’.

3. On the top you will see ‘Forwarding and POP/IMAP’.

4. Under the subheading ‘Forwarding:’ there is a ‘Add a forwarding address’ button.

5. Click on ‘Add a mail forwarding address’ and copy the applicable email you would like your performance report to be sent to. Ie. Yahoo, Hotmail, etc.

Your screen should look like the attached screenshot. Click screenshot below for enlarged view.

High School Homework Policy

In order to ensure students are optimally benefitting from their enrollment at Math Project’s high school courses, students and their parents are required to read and sign the following homework policies BEFORE their child’s first session in the program. We implement these rules to help students with key life skills, such as time management, work organization, setting priorities, meeting deadlines and above all, taking responsibility for their studies. As such, all high school students are required to abide by the following policies:

  • Students are expected to complete the assigned homework on time and to the best of their abilities. They must show steps and follow the instructor’s guidelines.
  • Homework completion entails attempting and showing steps for each and every question in the assigned worksheet or exercise by the instructor, unless specified otherwise by the instructor. Even if the concept is not so clear, the student must try to attempt using the examples provided in class. Failure to so is deemed incomplete homework.
  • If a student is absent from a session due to any reason, any assigned homework will still be due by the deadline. The deadline would only be extended with a reasonable documentary evidence, such as, a doctor’s note, boarding pass, etc. It will be the student’s responsibility to self-learn the content from the skipped session or parents could contact Math Project for extra one-on-one session, offered at additional costs.
  • The instructors inform the students about the weekly homework due within the first hour of the Math Project session. It is the student’s responsibility to work with the instructor during the session to develop clarity of homework concepts.
  • The student must let the instructor or Math Project administration know during the session if he or she is struggling with a concept and does not feel prepared to do the assigned homework.
  • Academic integrity is an essential component to student learning. Students are expected to submit original work for all evaluations, and are responsible for ensuring that issues of plagiarism, cheating, copying, etc. are avoided at all costs.
  • In the event that a student is unable to complete the assigned homework, the Math Project administration should be informed by the parent before the homework due date by calling or leaving a voice message at 1-844-628-4243 to avoid any fines.
  • Students must ensure that they receive Crowdmark links to submit the assigned work from the instructor before leaving the session.
  • The students must submit their classwork on the same day as the session by the deadline.
  • While all students are encouraged to submit their homework on time, Math Project administration allows high school students a three-day grace period keeping in mind their school workload and other important commitments. As such, the complete homework submission via Crowdmark is due no later than midnight on Tuesday following the Math Project session.
  • In case of technical difficulties with Crowdmark, the homework must be emailed to the instructor (ensuring to CC Math Project administration and parents in the email) by the aforementioned deadline.

Equipment for online study sessions

Here are the equipments that we recommend as you prepare for the back-to-school season. This will be extremely effective in facilitating an interactive experience in the online classroom:

  • OPTION A – Any writing tablet
  • OPTION B – Any touch-screen laptop or tablet (such iPad, Samsung Tablet, etc).
  • OPTION C – A cellphone 
  • OPTION D- A non-touchscreen laptop with a mouse or trackpad

Some important considerations:

  1. Any touch screen device will work for Conceptboard notes. However, OPTION C & D should be the last resort if Option A & B are not accessible.
  2. Stylus is recommended for Option A, B & C. Alternatively, the student can use fingers to write.
  3. It is ideal for students to have two separate devices. One will be used for Zoom and the other for writing on Conceptboard.

Checklist to determine ‘Enrichment’ versus ‘Regular’ Status 

If your answer to any of the questions below is a ‘YES’, the student’s status in the program may be considered “Regular” (versus “Enrichment”). 

  1. We understand that Math Project curriculum is more challenging and accelerated than most North American public schools. Is the student behind Math Project’s Enrichment Track requirements for his/her grade level (See Appendix A for details)?*
  2. Does the student have trouble completing the assigned homework on time on a weekly basis and in an organized manner?**
  3. Does the student struggle with passing Math Project tests within the first 2 attempts?***
  4. Does the student opt-out of participating in math contests when selected by the program administrators?
  5. Was the student at or below the Canadian National Average in the Mathematica contest in the prior school year?
  6. Does the student have any behavioural issues?
