Learn how MathXL can help you reach every student

By combining trusted author content with digital tools and a flexible platform, MathXL personalizes the learning experience and improves results for each student. 


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. 

  • Available for select MathXL 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.
  • Set pre- or post-assignments help students practice just the concepts that they need to master. With Personalized Homework, students take a quiz or test and receive subsequent homework that is personalized based on their performance. 
  • With Companion Study Plan Assignments, you can assign the Study Plan for practice as a prerequisite to a test or quiz.

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

Additional Features

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.

Pearson eText: access anytime, anywhere

The Pearson eText gives students access to their textbook anytime, anywhere. In addition to note taking, highlighting, and bookmarking, the Pearson eText offers interactive and sharing features. Rich media options let students watch lecture and example videos as they read or do their homework. Instructors can share their comments or highlights, and students can add their own, creating a tight community of learners in your class.

The Pearson eText companion app allows existing subscribers to access their titles on an iPad or Android tablet for either online or offline viewing.

The complete eText is available to students in MathXL for the lifetime of the edition. Students have unlimited access to the eText within any course that uses that edition of the textbook.


Custom Exercise Builder

The 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.
