Science & FOSS

An important change has come from FOSSweb: all users, including students,
must have a FOSSweb account in order to access the online activities and multimedia.

This means that teachers will need to create a class account for students to use to log in.

Instructions for creating an account are found below. You can also visit FOSSweb for walk-through videos or download our Student Access PDF.

Creating a Class Account
1 — Go to and log in.
2 — Locate the header that says “My Classes Pages” found beneath your “My FOSS Modules”
3 — Click on “Add a New Class”
Class Page Title
This is the title that appears on the top of the page and helps you find a class on your Teacher Page.
Examples of Class page titles might be:
First Period Science
7th Grade Biology 2013
Ms. FOSS’s 2013 Third Graders
If you teach multiple periods of science or different grade levels that use different FOSS modules, you’ll want to create separate Class pages.
Class Login Name
This is the username student will use to log in from This username must be unique in the system. The username cannot contain spaces or special characters. Some examples of good class usernames:
Class Password
Class passwords must be 8 or more characters in length, contain at least one letter and one number, contain at least one upper- or lower-case letter, and contain no spaces. Some examples of good student passwords:
You can check off whatever combination of modules your class is using. The ones you select here will appear on the class homepage. The modules that appear here are only modules that you have activated with your access code.
4 — Click the "Submit" button

The class username and password will be emailed to you automatically. Save this email and give the user account information to your students. When your students log in, they will go to and click on the Class Login tab in the lower left-hand corner of the page.
