If your school uses NEO 2s, you installed NEO Manager as part of setting up your NEO 2s. NEO Manager is used to send files and SmartApplets to the NEOs, change settings on the NEOs as well as retrieve files from the NEO to your computer. This can be used with the SmartOption Bundle or a single NEO plugged directly into your computer.

NEO Manager does not communicate with Renaissance Responders or MathsFacts in a Flash, but it does install the Renaissance Wireless Server Utility. You use the Renaissance Wireless Server Utility to set the Renaissance Place URL.

For more information about NEO Manager, refer to the NEO 2 Quick Guide (on any MathsFacts in a Flash page, in the upper-right corner, select Manuals). Under Accelerated Maths, Accelerated Reader or MathsFacts in a Flash, select the document name).

The 2Know! Toolbar allows teachers to ask students different question types that can be answered with Renaissance Responders or NEO 2s.

MathsFacts in a Flash does not use the 2Know! Toolbar directly. The 2Know! Toolbar does install the Renaissance Wireless Server Utility. You use the Renaissance Wireless Server Utility to set the Renaissance Place URL.

For more information about the 2Know! Toolbar, refer to the 2Know! Classroom Response System Installation and Setup Guide (on any page, in the upper-right corner, select Manuals. Under Accelerated Maths, select the document name).

Download this from the Downloads page.

If your school uses Accelerated Maths, you install the Renaissance Responder Program to complete Accelerated Maths assignments with either Renaissance Responders or NEO 2s.

If your school does not use Accelerated Maths, Renaissance Learning recommends installing either the NEO Manager or the 2Know! Toolbar.

If your school does use Accelerated Maths, and you have the Renaissance Responder Program installed, you will still need to set the Renaissance Place URL for MathsFacts in a Flash.

For more information about the Renaissance Responder program, see the 2Know! Classroom Response System Installation and Setup Guide (on any page, in the upper-right corner, select Manuals. Under Accelerated Maths, select the document name).

AccelTest software helps you create questions and answer choices that can be viewed on students' handheld responders.

If your school does not use AccelTest, Renaissance Learning recommends installing either the NEO Manager or the 2Know! Toolbar.

For more information about AccelTest, see the 2Know! Classroom Response System Installation and Setup Guide (on any page, in the upper-right corner, select Manuals. Under Accelerated Maths, select the document name).

Which of these four programs you use depends on:

  • The other software (Accelerated Maths or the 2Know! Toolbar) your school uses and
  • The hardware (NEO 2 or Responder) your school uses

You must use at least one of the four programs/utilities listed below to install the Renaissance Wireless Server Utility.

Your school may use one or more of these four programs/utilities.
