MobyMax (login through Clever)

The first time your student signs in to MobyMax, he or she can get started immediately by clicking on a subject button. Some subjects start students with an adaptive placement test (Math, Language, Foundational Reading, Fact Fluency, and Vocabulary).

Once the placement test is completed, the student’s lessons will be automatically assigned based on his or her missing skills. Other subjects will start students at their registered grade level, but teachers can always adjust this level by changing settings or assigning lessons as they see fit.


You can see your students’ progress when you click the subject area button (i.e., "Math," Language," etc.) on the home panel. We recommend that students consistently use MobyMax an hour each week in the subjects in which you would like to see progress. However, teachers tell us that even students who use MobyMax just once a week see growth.

Persevering through struggle

Once you've oriented your student to Zearn Math and they've started working through Digital Lessons you may find them asking you for help with a problem. It's important to note that Zearn Math has built-in remediation, and if your student is struggling or gets an answer wrong, they'll immediately experience content designed to help them understand and overcome the challenge. Just remind them that it's ok to get an answer wrong, we're always learning and growing our brains!

Eureka Math Parent Tip Sheets

To help parents address questions children may have about Eureka Math at home, Eureka Math has developed Parent Tip Sheets (K—8) that provide an overview of each topic. These tip sheets include suggested strategies and models, key vocabulary, connections to previous learning, and tips for how you can support your child’s learning at home. They are arranged in the same sequence as the student homework, making it easy for parents to follow along with their child’s progress.
