If you would like to go through the topic again before attempting the homework, open the lesson. Once you feel confident, open the homework.

Each homework has two question pages. You can move between the pages using the buttons on the left. Once you have answered all the questions on a page, click on Mark it. MyMaths will mark your work instantly and give you a result. when you have finished the last page of questions and clicked Mark it, a window will appear asking you to check out. Click the Checkout tab on the left hand side to see a summary of your scores.
