Welcome to your NumBots Trial!

During your trial we want you to witness every pupil achieving the “triple win” of understanding, recall and fluency in mental addition and subtraction, so that they move from counting to calculating.

Whether you’re using your trial to support maths intervention or grow maths mastery across your entire class – we hope you have an incredible trial experience!


Getting started

Find everything you need to hit the ground running with NumBots!


Click the link in the email we sent to set your password, then log in using your email address and password. Once you’ve done that you’ll be taken to the NumBots Dashboard, which will look quite empty for now…


Click Play, in the header bar, to try out the NumBots programme for yourself! (As a teacher you’ll find all the levels unlocked from the start, whereas children will work through them from the beginning, unlocking one level at a time.)


To add colleagues go to Account > Teachers. Click on the ‘Add Teacher’ button and fill in the requested information. They will receive an email with a link for them to set their password. If your colleagues already have TTRS accounts, they can log in using the same details.


Go to Account > Classes to add classes of pupils. Read more here. If your pupils already have TTRS accounts they can log in using the same details.


Download username labels containing each pupil’s log in details; print out and cut them up, ready to hand out to the individual pupils.


Install NumBots app on pupils’ devices (if they will be using tablets to play) or bookmark the NumBots web address on their computers, to save time logging in.

That’s it! You and your class are ready to explore NumBots!


Ready for launch?

Use our exciting launch video to introduce NumBots to your pupils. You can also download our customisable PowerPoint lesson plan to help with getting your pupils ready for NumBots adventures!


What is NumBots?

Watch this useful video we have created for teachers to explain what NumBots is all about. Share it with your colleagues who want in on the NumBots action.


Practising NumBots at home

Did you know that your pupils can access NumBots at home on any device via the browser or app which is free to download? Encourage your class to play little and often, ideally 3 minutes a day, 5 days a week. Download bespoke parent/carer letters for each of your pupils to share their login details.


NumBots Pro Tips

Get the most out of your NumBots trial with these customisations and pro tips.

Pro Tip 1

Identify pupils’ strengths and weaknesses

Find out which pupils are underplaying, struggling to pass a level or nailing things in the ‘Stats’ section of your dashboard. NumBots’ teacher reports provide powerful formative analysis, in just 5 minutes per week, making planning and resourcing easy! 

Learn more about the teacher reports.

Pro Tip 3

Adapt the experience for pupils who require extra support

There will be individual pupils for whom the time constraints required to pass a Story level are demonstrably too tough. In these cases, you can simply relax the time constraints. 

Learn how to give pupils up to 3x longer to complete a level, change the colour settings, and use the text to speech function, by reading our accessibility options .

Pro Tip 2

Customise the content for your more confident pupils

We think it’s best for all pupils to start at the very beginning of Story Mode – on Rust Level 1. This way, pupils reaffirm the foundations of maths, make connections between easier and more difficult questions, and are more motivated by the in-game rewards. However, if your pupils are already fluent at the early skills, you can let them skip the first topics in Story Mode.

Pro Tip 4

Download the free mobile App and take NumBots on the Go

Parents and pupils can access NumBots from their mobile devices while on the go! Simply click Google Play (Android), Apple (iOS), or Amazon to download the free app straight to a phone. Pupil progress is stored centrally, so whether they play on a phone at home, or a computer in school, their scores and achievements will always be up to date!

Pro Tip 5

Celebrate Maths Mastery

NumBots’ Certificate Hub is an incredibly versatile resource which enables you to celebrate a range of pupil achievements. Create a fully customised pack of certificates – then return each week, month or term to download the up-to-date certificates, auto-populated with the winning pupils’ names, in just one click! Whether you want to recognise pupils’ progress, effort or mathematical fluency, and award certificates for high scores or most improvement – that’s up to you!
While you’re handing the certificates out, play the accompanying ‘Awards Ceremony’ presentation. Personalised with the winning pupils’ names, it makes an exciting addition to school award assemblies.

Yes, of course. We have hundreds of schools around the world using our platform. Basic maths, after all, is important to every learner no matter where you live.
