The General Preference is the only user preference in MathsFacts in a Flash. All other preferences affect an entire class or school.

Any user can choose a personal setting for this preference.

The General Preference allows you to specify how many rows you want to see at one time in a vertical list while you are working with the program.

The other items in the list will be visible when you select Next >> or << Previous.

The default is: 20 rows.


The General Preference does not affect (1) lists of students or (2) lists with information that extends horizontally. Most of the MathsFacts in a Flash lists are one of these two types.

The General Preference is not a class preference and will not be copied when classes are copied from one year to the next.

To edit the preference:

  1. On the Home page, select MathsFacts in a Flash, then Preferences. The Preferences page opens.

  2. If necessary, select a school and class from the drop-down lists (above the preferences tables).
  3. Under the User Preferences, select General.
  4. The General Preference page opens.

  5. Select the Rows field, delete the existing number and type the maximum number of rows you want to see in vertical lists on the MathsFacts in a Flash pages.
  6. To return to the default setting (20 rows), select Default.

  7. Select Save.
