In a nutshell.
Legalese is never fun nor is it easy to understand. Unfortunately, although MathBait is working hard to provide all students with top-of-the-line content, companies and individuals will attempt to use and abuse our creations ultimately making it impossible for us to continue.
While we encourage you to read the full terms below, we hope to also honestly share our thoughts in plain English.
First, this site is for students and those personally interested in learning. It is not for companies to embed on their LMS and claim they "designed" a course, it is not for teachers to assign to their class. MathBait is a labor of love to help students succeed. It is not in the "public domain" and you may not distribute our materials without a site license. Everything on, linked, and embedded in this site is registered with the copyright office.
Next, this site must be 100% safe for children. We have the right to remove users, comments, and anything else that we determine goes against this principle.
Third, we don't make any guarantees. While our content is designed to be fun and help students learn, we don't promise they will ace their SAT or next test. If your student needs additional help, please contact us. We can often arrange for low or no cost tutoring for families in need.
Finally, be kind, be responsible, follow the laws, respect each other, and help us to create a caring and inclusive environment where all students can succeed.
