The Maths Factor is an online mathematics school for children in primary school to use at home.

Courses are available in separate ‘schools’: Arithmetic (costing £9.99 for the first month and £14.99 per month thereafter), Times Tables and Algebra (both £19.99 for a one-off purchase) along with ‘Perfect Practice’ (£5.99 for an online workbook) and a ‘Summer School’ (£14.99 for a one-off purchase).

Arithmetic and Times Tables start with an initial assessment. The course is then tailored to the appropriate level automatically, continually monitoring performance and progressing through the course as appropriate for the student. A range of video lessons are backed up by Maths Games to help reinforce concepts. There are also teachers on hand to answer queries a parent dashboard that allows parents to monitor their child's progress through the program. The Algebra School and ‘Perfect Practice’ are similar, but have no initial assessment.

There are different Summer Schools for each year of primary school from those who have just finished in Year 1 to those making the move from Year 6 to secondary school). Each Summer School includes Arithmetic that an average child would expect to have completed during the school year they have just finished with unlimited access to teaching videos, learning games and practice sessions which can be repeatedly reviewed until the end of September.
