Introduction to OPTIMATH
Online Practice and Testing in Mathematics

The testing system is located at http://msenux.redwoods.edu/optimath

The first page of the testing site is the Optimath "portal", from which you can go to the current semester site, as well as to documentation, practice exercises, and other related links.

Click on the LOGIN link for the current semester to see a list of course sections. Then click on the link for your section (corresponding to your course and instructor) to take you to your section login page. You also may want to bookmark this page on your browser.

Login page: Your login name is just like the one that you use for WebAdvisor and myCR: first initial + last name + last three digits of your student ID#. For example, if your name is John Doe and your student ID# is 1234567, then your login name is jdoe567. Your initial password is your full 7-digit student ID#, but you can (and should) change it once you log in.

After you log in, you have just five options (each of these options is explained in more detail below):

Important: Do not use the "Back" and "Forward" buttons on your browser when you are using the testing system. If you do, you will be immediately logged out of the system. Instead, use the links on each page to move around. There are really only five places to go, namely the options listed above (Choose Assignment, View Assignment Results, etc.).
