Selecting one of the activities from the list on the left (from which you can choose easier, core, or harder) will then bring up the secondary menu on the right. When you choose from that menu, you will begin your problems:
As you work through these series of problems, you earn medals, which you can see in the first screenshot, and which are explained here:
Essentially, they give you a snapshot of your mastery. In addition to working through the regular grade level progress of Mathletics, you can play Mathletics Live against other Mathletes all over the world (or just against the computer if you prefer):
Apart from the core Mathletics program (the practice problems highlighted above), there are a host of other features in Mathletics that are all too easy to overlook, but which are wonderful added benefits of your subscription.
First, there is the parent center accessed via your own login (each child also has an individual login to Mathletics).
Via the Parent Center, you can access every grade level. You can look at guides for problem types and walkthroughs of problem examples. Most importantly, you can print the Mathletics workbooks. You can print the workbooks by the entire year (both student and teacher editions), or you can print them by sections (as shown below):
It is via the Parent Account that you also are able to assign tasks to your child.
Of course, you don't have to use the Parent Center at all. You can just turn your child loose on his grade level and let him go! Mathletics will email you a weekly progress report!
