Q: Can my student work on their math homework if we do not have internet connection at home?
A: Yes! Students need to have downloaded the assignments at school. Once home students need to turn the WIFI off, which can be done by clicking on the icon on the right side of the shelf. This will prevent the computer for continually searching for a WIFI connection. They can then connect to their Go Math player on the shelf and work on their assignments. Once they return to school and open their Chromebook to reconnect to school WIFI, their assignment will turn in.
