SCHOOL LICENCE

Hi, and thank you for your interest in a school licence!

Below, you will find the answers to some of the more common questions that we are asked about our school licences, as well as the school licence form itself!


What is the cost of a school licence?

The cost of the licence is €40 (€30 for DEIS schools) multiplied by the number of students accounts that you need. (Teacher accounts are completely free!)

If the number of student accounts that you wish to include with your licence is less than five, then the licence is instead a flat fee of €200 (€150 for DEIS schools).

\[\,\]

Who can fill out the school licence form?

Any school staff member, including the principal, a deputy principal, a teacher or administration staff.

\[\,\]

I don’t know the exact number of students yet. What should I do?

Not to worry! It only takes us at most 24 hours to get everything ready for you once the school licence form is filled out.

Therefore, feel free to come back at a later time when you have a better idea of student numbers.

\[\,\]

What is included with a school licence?

A school licence grants each of the agreed upon number of students (typically all 5th/6th year Applied Maths students) a full membership to A.M. Online, thereby allowing them to access all of our resources and to use all of our features until the end of school term (30th June).

Likewise, it also entitles any Applied Maths teacher at that school to a teacher account. This account includes added benefits as outlined here, including the ability to show and hide the solutions of our exercise questions.

\[\,\]

Is a school licence recommended for schools with or without an Applied Maths teacher?

Both!

For many schools, hiring an Applied Maths teacher is not a financially viable option due to low student interest.

As such, A.M. Online is a great alternative for students in such schools whose only other options are 1) to learn at home using a schoolbook with little help or guidance and/or 2) to spend a significant amount of money on additional support, which is often not possible.

For schools with an Applied Maths teacher, A.M. Online offers everything that can be found in a schoolbook, and much more! This website therefore makes for a much better classroom learning experience than the static pages of a schoolbook.

Even if our website is not used specifically in the classroom, it’s still incredibly beneficial as a secondary resource for Applied Maths teachers and their students by, for example, giving students another teacher they can ask questions to, even when they are at home!

\[\,\]

School term has already started. Can I still obtain a school licence?

Yes! There are no restrictions on when you can obtain a school licence.

Of course, the earlier, the better!

\[\,\]

How is a school licence so cheap? What’s the catch?!

No catch!

We created this website with the primary goal of giving both students and teachers access to the best resources for Applied Maths as cheaply as possible.

A school licence is therefore priced at what we believe is the lowest amount that keeps the website running!

\[\,\]

How long does a school licence last?

Until the end of the school year (30th June).

We will send each school details on how they can renew their licence for the following year a few weeks before this date.

\[\,\]

How should a school licence be funded?

That is entirely dependent on the school!

Some schools fund it themselves, some schools fund it through parents, and others a bit of both.

The choice is up to you!

\[\,\]

What payment methods do you accept?

School licenses can be purchased using all of the usual debit/credit cards as well as by bank transfer if preferred.

\[\,\]

I am a teacher/principal at a DEIS school. How do I avail of the discounted rate?

Easy!

When applying for a licence, be sure to use your school email address. We’ll then verify things from there!

\[\,\]

What if we need more student/teacher accounts later in the year?

No problem! Let us know by contacting us at teacher@amonline.ie and we’ll get that sorted!

\[\,\]

I have a question about school licences that isn’t answered here. What can I do?

You are always free to reach out to Mr. Kenny on Teacher Chat or at teacher@amonline.ie.
