Task Tracker Subscriptions

When you purchase a Task Tracker subscription, you are purchasing "seats".  Seats are then used to provide students in your classes the particular features available in Task Tracker. Our a la carte approach allows you to decide which features to use with your classes. Beginning in August of 2022, we will have four features to offer:

Each of these features require 1 seat. Seats cost $1.  There are discount options for multiple seats (see Multiple Feature Discount below). We also offer a 20% discount on the cost of a seat for a Group Plan with 150 or more seats.

You may purchase seats using one of three subscription types to select from.

  1. Individual Teacher Plans are designed for single teachers with a need for less than 120 seats. A seat costs $1. The minimum purchase is $50. (If you need 120 or more seats, you will receive a better deal if you purchase a Group Plan and leave the other teacher seats open.)
  2. Group Plans are multi-teacher subscriptions with 150 or more seats (great for schools or school districts). Seat costs are reduced to $0.80/seat. Each teacher will still have their individual classes, independent of the others. Students can be easily transferred between teachers and assignments made by one teacher can be cloned to another teacher's classes.
  3. If you have a special need, you can contact us to discuss creating a Customized Plan for your needs.  These are likely rare, but we want to leave room for such situations. If we come to an agreement, we will create a custom plan and provide you with a special Custom Code which you can enter below to complete the order. (NOTE: Customized plans are not used for small classes with a few students. Our minimum payment is $50 regardless of the number of students. Customized plans are used for large districts and unusual scheduling complications that fall outside the customary norms.)

Multiple Feature Discount and Seat Explanation

Task Tracker will have four features in the Fall of 2022: Concept Builders, Minds on Physics, the Calculator Pad, and Physics Interactives (with Concept Checkers).

Subscription plans are based on the # of Seats (not the # of Students).  The number of Seats required per Student will vary depending on what features the class uses.  Keep this in mind when deciding on the number of seats in your plan!

Concept Builders Only: 1 Seat per 1 Student
Minds on Physics Only: 1 Seat per 1 Student
The Calculator Pad Only: 1 Seat per 1 Student
Physics Interactives with Concept Checkers Only: 1 Seat per 1 Student

Discounted Bundles:
We are offering the following three discounted options for the 2022-23 school year.

  1. Buy 2, Get 2 Free in 2022 (our best value): 2 Seats per 1 Student
    Purchase two seats for your students and we will provide you all four features. That's a steal! But don't feel guilty ... we're glad to give it to you.
  2. Concept Builders + The Calculator Pad: 1.5 Seats per 1 Student
    Combine a great conceptual tool with a great problem-solving platform.
  3. Minds On Physics + The Calculator Pad: 1.5 Seats per 1 Student
    Combine another great conceptual tool with a great problem-solving platform.


Example 1: If you have a course of 50 students and wish to have only one feature enabled, you will need 50 seats

Example 2: If you have a class of 50 students and wish to have both Concept Builders and Calculator Pad enabled, you will need 75 seats for the 50 students in that class.

Example 3: If you have a class of 50 students and wish to have both Concept Builders and Minds On Physics enabled, you will need 100 seats for the 50 students in that class. But bonus: you are buying two features so we will provide the remaining two features free. That's all four features for the purchase of 2 seats/student. You can't beat that!

Introducing the Ad-Free Option

For years The Physics Classroom has been able to offer a free website with low-cost premium services by displaying ads on the perimeter of its pages. If it weren't for ads, the website as a whole would not be free and the cost of a Task Tracker subscription would be considerably higher.  We hope to continue this practice.

For the first time ever we will be offering an ad-free option to both individuals and schools. An individual can purchase an ad-free account for $3/year. Purchasers of Task Tracker subscriptions can add the ad-free option to all their students for an additional $2/student. It is already discounted down from the $3 individual cost. There is no large-group discount on the ad-free option. When a student logs in to Task Tracker, ads will be removed from the perimeter of pages. 

Our Store will be ready for ad-free purchases in the near future.
