First, you must have already installed the program using the CD. This update is NOT a replacement for the CDs, nor is it capable of running on its own. It can be safely installed over your existing program and will not delete or modify your gradebook(s) in any way.
Next, go to this page and download the update file that matches the name of the product(s) you're trying to update and the operating system you use. The file name extension will be .exe for Windows or a .dmg for Mac OS.
Simply double-click the icon for the installer wherever you happened to save it.
You'll need to hit "Next" on the first screen that appears. Then you'll have to accept the Terms & Conditions. Once you've done that, the update will install automatically (this should only take a few seconds).
You're done! If you want your child to begin a lesson right away, just click "Finish" and the program will immediately open. Otherwise, uncheck the box by "Run ... Teaching Textbook" before you click "Finish". You may delete the update installation file if you want to.
Make sure that you have Disc 1 of your Math software in your CD/DVD drive before beginning the update.
From the Software Updates page, download the file for whichever Math program you wish to update.
From your Downloads folder find and double click on "MathxMacPatch.zip"
