Is ClassZone free?
Yes. If you purchased a McDougal Littell Teacher's Edition, then you may access its ClassZone resources for free.

Can I preview ClassZone resources without registering?
Absolutely! See the list of ClassZone Demos on the left side of this screen for free previews of all the companion sites. By selecting the book you are interested in, you'll be able to view the ClassZone resources that correspond to one chapter or section of that book.

This is my first time to ClassZone. How do I get started?
Follow these easy steps to register.
1. On the main ClassZone page, follow the link that says register first.

2. You'll be asked to select the book you'd like ClassZone access for. Click on the book title.

3. Next, you'll be asked to enter your key. The key is the 13-digit code found in the front of your teacher's edition. You'll only use this key once to set up your personal account. There is a separate key for teachers and students. Enter the key and press the Submit button

Helpful hint for ¡En español! users: the fifth digit in the teacher key is an "I" as in Ireland.

4. Once the key has been accepted, you'll be asked to enter some information about you as well as create a personal user name and password. Be sure to remember the user name and password you choose -- you'll need both each time you wish to enter ClassZone.

Helpful hint: Your user name and password are case-sensitive. Try to choose something that you can easily remember. We recommend that you avoid spaces in your user name.

5. After all your information has been entered and accepted, you're ready to go!


I typed in the access key from the textbook, but I still can't register. What's wrong?

Do I have to enter the access key every time I use ClassZone?
No, the access key is a one-time use key. You use it to gain access to ClassZone and create your personal user name and password. Once you've created that user name and password, you won't need to use the access key. You will need your user name and password each time you visit.

Do I have to fill in all the information on the registration page?
Please fill out all information on this screen. McDougal Littell uses this information for its internal purposes only and does not share your personal information with any other organization. It's also helpful to enter the "secret" question field when registering. You will be asked this question if you ever forget your password or want to change it.

I registered a user name and password, but now they don't work. What's wrong?
Be sure that you are entering the user name and password exactly as you created them. The user name and password are case-sensitive, and you must be sure that if you used spaces or underscores when creating your user name and password to consistently enter them when logging into ClassZone.

Can I have the same user name and password for different ClassZone sites?
Yes! If you have already registered for one companion Web site and wish to add another to your account, simply go to the ClassZone home page and follow the link for Adding a new ClassZone key. On that page you'll need to first choose the new ClassZone site that you want access to, then enter your existing user name and password and supply the one-time access key for the new ClassZone site. (Remember that access keys for students and teachers can be found in the teacher's edition.) This will update your account so you can access multiple sites.

What are technical requirements for using ClassZone?
ClassZone requires Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator version 4.0 or higher. Before you register, we suggest that you make sure that your browser is set up to accept cookies and is JavaScript-enabled. You can check these settings by doing the following:
          Internet Explorer users: Go to Tools, Internet Options, Security, Custom Settings
          Netscape Navigator users: Go to Edit, Preferences, Advanced, Cache

Please note that your version of a browser may store this information in another location.

We also suggest that you clear your cache before registering to create your account. You can clear your cache by doing the following:
          Internet Explorer users: Go to Tools, Internet Options, General           Netscape Navigator users: Go to Edit, Preferences, Advanced, Cache

ClassZone also utilizes several plug-ins. Plug-ins are small programs that add to your browser's capabilities. Plug-ins are free, but do require that you download software. Here is a list of plug-ins that you may need, depending on the ClassZone site you visit (Click on the plug-in's name to download it.):
          Adobe Acrobat Reader
          Macromedia Shockwave

In general, Internet Explorer will automatically download and install any plug-in software it requires when you hit a page with plug-in content. Netscape Navigator will alert you that you need to download software and take you to a Web site where you can download (and then install) the plug-in software.

Your school may have a policy to disable the download installation of any new plug-in software on school computers. If this is the case, contact your information technology specialist to alert him or her about ClassZone's requirements.
