When students log onto Sumdog for the first time, they go through a welcome phase.
During the welcome phase they will see only simple multiplication and addition questions.
The welcome phase is to introduce students to Sumdog and get used to it before beginning the diagnostic test. This is to ensure they do not rush through the test and get placed at an ability level too low for them.
The welcome phase lasts for 100 correct answers. Games unlock after every 100 correct answers.
After the first game is unlocked, the others will be unlocked usually in sets of 2.
