special prices to help now and next school year
A Problem-Attic subscription is normally for the one-year period from
July to June. To help during this time of school closures,
subscriptions start now, run through next year (to June 2021), and are
discounted by 30–40%.
A subscription supports teachers in all grades and core subjects: math,
science, social studies and ELA. It provides additional content, plus
editing, export, scoring, and other options to help with instruction
and assessment—now when you're working with students
remotely, and when you're back in the classroom. You can deliver
quizzes through Google or an LMS, create slideshows, get real-time
feedback with QR codes, and customize your curriculum to meet the
needs of every student.
Those advanced features are now available for a greatly reduced price, as
shown in the table below. And you can save an additional $50 if you
make payment by credit card. (This helps streamline the ordering
process while our office is short-staffed.)
|2000 or more
The discounts are valid through May 31st. While the subscription
period is longer, don’t wait to take advantage of it. As soon as
you give us the go-ahead (see ordering steps below), you can start making
full use of the program.
A school subscription provides access to the entire database of
questions. It also opens up the technology side of the
program, such as the live math editor, automatic creation of
parallel forms, export of questions to Google or an LMS, and much
more. Notably, these technology options work with the for-pay content
and the 220,000 questions which are freely available on Problem-Attic,
making them all editable and deliverable electronically.
If you’d like more details about what’s included in a school
subscription, you can log in to Problem-Attic and click Plans in the main
menu. You can also try most subscription options in the Play
Area. Toward the bottom of this page are links with more
Price quotes, etc.

You can pay right after filling out the school subscription form.

place an order, write back to us and tell us you want to pay by credit
card. Then we’ll provide a link for doing that online.
Important: the price quote will not show the $50 savings for a credit
card payment. Don’t worry, that amount will be taken off when we email
you a link for payment.
Please note that our credit card processing is done by Stripe. That
company will send you a receipt. Separately we’ll send an
invoice showing your account is paid in full.
The sale prices above are for new school customers, not for renewals. The
prices are valid through 5/31/2020, which means we must receive your
purchase order or payment by that date. Our terms for a PO are net
30 days. The subscription period lasts to 6/30/2021.
For each subscribing school, there must be an administrator who manages
the account and is responsible for adding/removing teachers. The
subscription has a limit of 60 teachers; all must be employed at the
school. Documents may be shared between teachers at the school but
not posted on any district website unless all schools are
similarly-licensed for Problem-Attic.
Maintaining the list of authorized users is easy. Teacher email
addresses are uploaded through a simple text file, or one-at-a-time, and the
administrator can appoint a “deputy” to help.
Problem-Attic sends emails automatically to the teachers, telling them how
to get started. More information is here.
For licensing purposes, a school district office does not meet the
definition of a school site. This is explained in the terms. If
district officials wish to use Problem-Attic, then all schools need to be
licensed. Quantity discounts are available, and these may be in
addition to the small school discounts above.
