Technical requirements

To use the audio feature for math students practicing at pre-K through fifth-grade levels, a sound card and speakers (or headphones) are needed.

Some features, such as reports, require additional software that is likely installed on your computer. If not, no problem. You can download Adobe Flash and Adobe Reader for free.

An Internet connection speed of at least 128Kbps is recommended. If you want to connect via a proxy device, it must obey the HTTP/1.1. protocol, including all caching and anti-caching directives.
