Empower each student with personalized learning tools

Each student learns at a different pace. Personalized learning pinpoints the precise areas your students need to practice, giving every student the support they need — when and where they need it — to be successful. Personalized learning in MathXL gives instructors the flexibility to incorporate the approach that best suits the needs of their courses and students.

  • Available for select courses, Skill Builder offers adaptive practice that is designed to increase students' ability to complete their assignments. By monitoring student performance on their homework, Skill Builder adapts to each student's needs and provides just-in-time, in-assignment practice to help them improve their proficiency of key learning objectives.
  • With Personalized Homework, students take a quiz or test and receive a subsequent homework assignment that is personalized based on their performance. This way, students can focus on just the topics they have not yet mastered.

Provide just-in-time help

Homework and practice exercises in MathXL reflect the instructor’s choice of approach and learning style, and regenerate algorithmically to give students unlimited opportunity for practice and mastery. Instructors can choose from the many exercises available for the author’s approach — or even choose additional exercises from other MathXL courses. Most exercises include learning aids, such as guided solutions, sample problems, and extra help at point-of-use, and offer helpful feedback when students enter incorrect answers.

Instructors can create, import, and manage online homework assignments, quizzes, and tests — or start with sample assignments — all of which are automatically graded, allowing instructors to spend less time grading, and more time teaching.

A variety of multimedia resources are also available as assignment learning aids. Students can link to the ebook, video clips, and animations to improve their understanding of key concepts. You can also assign media and video as well as accompanying exercises.

Access from most devices

Mobile-Friendly Design

The exercise player in MathXL has been updated with a new, streamlined, mobile-friendly design. Students can access their your course from iPad® and Android® tablets to work on exercises and review completed assignments on the go.

Better understand student performance

Data & Analytics

When you teach with MathXL, student performance improves. That's why instructors have chosen MathXL for over 20 years, touching the lives of over 50 million students. MathXL gives instructors a comprehensive gradebook with enhanced reporting functionality that makes it easier for instructors to manage courses efficiently.

  • With the Reporting Dashboard, you can view, analyze, and report learning outcomes, and get the information you need to keep your students on track. Available via the Gradebook and fully mobile-ready, the Reporting Dashboard presents student performance data at the class, section, and program levels in an accessible, visual manner. Its finegrain reports allow instructors and administrators to compare performance across different courses, across individual sections and within each course.
  • Item Analysis: Track class-wide understanding of particular exercises so you can refine your class lectures or adjust the course/department syllabus. Just-in-time teaching has never been easier.

Additional Features

Comprehensive online course content

Filled with a wealth of content, MathXL is tightly integrated with the author approach of your choosing, but you can also easily add, remove, or modify existing instructional material. You can also add your own course materials to suit the needs of your students or department. In short, MathXL lets you teach exactly as you’d like.

Easily scalable and shareable content

MathXL lets you manage multiple class sections, and other instructors can copy your settings so a standardized syllabus can be maintained across your department. If you've spent time customizing your MathXL course and want to use the same course next semester, you can copy your existing course, preserve all your customizations, and share with other instructors.

Powerful homework and test manager

You can choose from hundreds of exercises available for your specific course, and can even choose exercises from a different book to provide an almost limitless number of available exercises. You can create, import, and manage online homework assignments, quizzes, and tests—or start with “Ready to Go” assignments—all of which are automatically graded, allowing you to spend less time grading, and more time teaching!

Custom exercise builder

The MyLab Custom Question Builder (CQB) within MathXL lets you create static and algorithmic online exercises for a wide variety of mathematical and statistical topics. A library of sample exercises provides an easy starting point for creating questions, and you can also create questions from scratch or edit questions from your course's online test bank.
