    How to Use Preferences

    Preferences apply to all students using the app. If manykids will use the same iPad, as in a classroom setting, we

    recommend changing Chapter progression to OFF, andClassroom Mode to ON. Here are the details.

    grade puzzles, instructions are read aloud. Feedback isprovided for incorrect puzzles so kids can learn fromtheir mistakes.

    1) Allow students time to play chapters related to thisweeks lesson plan. This will reinforce classroominstruction in a fun way for the students.

    2) Allow students time to play bonus lessons. This iscritical for retaining skills from previous weeks.Each student should have a Eweclid Personal Tutoraccount (contact us if you need help). The EweclidPersonal Tutor will provide customized Mathlessons for each child based on their progress andretention.

    3) For Math homework, make playing Eweclid athome an option for both this weeks lessons andespecially for the bonus lessons. Tutor accounts

    make sure student learning data and game datatransfer automatically between home and school.Require students to repeat chapters until they get

    four stars for the chapter.

    Note that each time a chapter is played, the orderof the puzzles in the chapter changes, the order ofthe answers within each puzzle changes, and forsome puzzles, the incorrect answers (used asdistracters) change as well. These changes helpensure that the students dont simply memorizepuzzles instead they have to engage and thinkevery time.
