The authors of the article are leaders of the team that has prepared mathematical portal Math for You designed for practising secondary school mathematics (abbreviated Math4U, web address:

The Math for You portal has been developed since 2016 during the implementation of the Mathematical Exercises for You (2016-2019) and Mathematical Exercises for You 2 (2019-2022) projects supported by the Erasmus + program. The portal is available in four languages – English, Czech, Polish, and Slovak, to which the Spanish will be added during 2021. The portal includes four main parts – Math for Student, Math for Student Easy, Math for Teacher and Math for Class. The applications Math for Student and Math for Student Easy are software for practising all topics of secondary school mathematics. Math for Student works with the database of over 4,200 questions, while Math for Student Easy contains over 1,300 problems which are possible to solve without paper and pencil. Math for Teacher is intended primarily for teachers. A teacher can prepare an interactive test or a tailor-made written exam by choosing any questions from the vast database of over 4,200 questions. Currently, each of them is in four languages – English, Czech, Polish, and Slovak. In the section Math for Class, students and teachers find 150 interesting quizzes and educational games called “matching games” and “table-selection games” each of them in English, Spanish, Czech, Polish, and Slovak.

In the contribution, the authors aim to describe how the Math for You portal has helped teachers and students during the lockdown caused by COVID19 pandemic. The teachers have used the portal as a tool for easy preparation of interactive tests and homework for students. The students have used this portal as a tool for their home practice. The second goal of the article is to track and to compare the website activity of the users of the Math for You portal before the lockdown and during the lockdown, i.e. the total number of users, the number of users from different countries and cities, the most used web browsers and operating systems, the most used device, the most accessed topics of the secondary school mathematics (number of page views, number of downloaded materials) and the most used type of the material or application. We used Google Analytics as a measuring tool.
