Signing up and placing an order
If you have decided to start using the Maths Garden you have to sign up first. Below, you will find a step by step manual how to do this.
First, go to the ‘Sign up’ page. To do so, click ‘Sign up‘ in the menu at the top of the page.
In this menu you can choose between two options: one for signing up a School/Organization and one for signing up a Family.
Click Signing up a School.
You are now directed to the Garden Centre of the Maths Garden and the Add Order screen will appear.
This screen consists of four parts:
– Add Order
– Add School
– Add Administrator
We will explain each of these four parts.
In this part of the sign up procedure, enter the data of the person placing the order. Usually, this will be the headmaster or the financial administrator. These data will be displayed on the invoice.
In the School or Organization Name field, you may enter the name of your school, remedial teaching practice, etcetera. This is not required.
In the fields below, you can enter all the information about the person placing the order.
In the last two fields, Number of Accounts and Number of Months, you can enter how many children you want to sign up for playing in the garden and for how many months. If you, for example, want to have a school class of 30 children play in the garden for a year, enter 30 at Number of Accounts and 12 at Number of Months. You can find more information about the Maths Garden subscription at the sign up page.
In this part of the sign up procedure, enter the data of the school.
Choose the kind of school or organization you want to sign up in the dropdown menu at the School Type field.
If you choose Elementary School at School Type, a couple of more steps will follow. If not, you are now done with this part and you can continue to Add Administrator.
An elementary school also has to enter a School Password and, if desired, a Website.
Pupils of an elementary school log in to the Maths Garden by choosing their name from a list. To protect your pupil’s privacy, their names have to be protected with a school password. So, at the field Password, enter a password that all of your pupils can easily remember.
An elementary school must also enter a Website so we can place a logo of your school on our website for the logging in procedure. This, however, is not required.
In this part of the sign up procedure, enter the data of the person who will be responsible for the administration of the Maths Garden. It may be necessary to add or remove pupils or to add new classes. The administrator can make all these kinds of adjustments and can in addition view all the classes’ results. An administrator is also authorized to place new orders. For example, you can choose the general pupil counsellor or the head master for this job.
Enter a user name and a password for the administrator at the User Name and Password fields. Repeat this password in the Repeat Password field to avoid typing errors. Make sure you file this user name and password so you will have access to the administrative section of the Maths Garden at all times.
Behind the field for the password, an indicator will appear while you are typing to indicate the security of the password. Make sure you choose a safe password, so no one but the administrator has access to the administrative part of the Maths Garden.
Enter the rest of the data of the administrator at the First Name, Last Name and Email Address fields. The email address will be used for sending forgotten passwords and other administrative business. A confirmation of this subscription will be sent to this email address as well. Make sure this is an email address that is checked by the administrator frequently.
In this part of the sign up procedure you are requested to read the General Terms and Conditions of Oefenweb B.V. and the Privacy Declaration.
Before you can continue signing up, you must check both boxes, agreeing to the content of these documents.
Finally, click the OK button to send all the data and to continue to the Confirmation and the Payment.
You will receive a confirmation email on the entered email address. At this point, your Maths Garden account will be activated!
