Problem-Attic Subscriptions
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.)

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.

What’s included

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 information.

Price quotes, etc.

The ordering process is described below.  To request a price quote, follow the same steps.  You’ll see the option on the school subscription form.  Please note:

  • We don’t require pre-payment or a PO before activating a subscription.  You can be up-and-running with Problem-Attic shortly after we receive your subscription form and verify your school information.

  • School-wide subscriptions are for teachers at one site, as defined in our terms of service.  If you’re interested in district-wide use, we offer very nice quantity discounts.  Please contact us for details.

  • For vendor registration, here is a signed W9 form and sole source letter.

Thank you for considering this purchase.  We appreciate your support very much, and we are certain you’ll find Problem-Attic to be one of the best teacher resources and most-loved programs at your school.

Subscription Form

A school subscription can be activated very quickly.  To get started, you should provide the following instructions to the person who will be responsible for adding teachers and who will serve as our main contact.  We refer to that person as the “administrator”.

  1. Sign up for a free Problem-Attic account (if you haven’t done so already) and log in.
  2. Click Plans on the main menu and choose Subscription form.
  3. Assuming you’re a registered user, click the button Continue to Form.
  4. Type in your school information.
  5. Select a payment method or “No order yet” if you want a price quote. 
    For payment by credit card—you’ll save an additional $50—see notes below.
  6. Enter the appropriate pricing code for your school size, as shown in the table.
    When determining enrollment, you can round down to the nearest 20.
  7. Read the school terms.  If they are acceptable, click the Submit button.

Problem-Attic will send an email confirming receipt of the form.  Our turnaround time for activating a school subscription is usually one day, provided we have complete information, including the name and email address of the administrator.

Credit Card Payment

You can save an additional $50 if you pay by credit card.  You have two optons for doing that:

  • You can pay right after filling out the school subscription form. Simply choose “Credit Card” for the payment method, and be sure to enter the correct pricing code, as shown in the table.  After you submit the form, you will see a page asking you to confirm your email address, etc.  If everything is correct, click Make Payment, then you’ll see a form for entering your credit card information.

  • You can pay after we send you a price quote.  If you decide to 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.

Additional Details

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.
