Personalize learning for each student

Adaptive Learning

Not every student learns the same way or at the same rate. With the growing need for acceleration through many courses, it's more important than ever to meet students where they learn. Personalized learning in the MyLab gives you the flexibility to incorporate the approach that best suits the needs of your course and your students.

  • Available with select MyLab Math courses*, instructors can choose to make Skill Builder exercises available within homework assignments to give students just-in-time adaptive practice. When students are struggling with their assigned homework, Skill Builder will deliver additional adaptive exercises that help each student improve the skills needed to complete the assignment. The adaptive engine tracks each student’s performance and delivers questions that adapt to his or her level of understanding. When the system has determined that the student has a high probability of successfully completing the assigned exercise, students are prompted to return to the exercise assigned by the instructor.
  • Based on their performance on a quiz or test, personalized homework allows students to focus on just the topics they have not yet mastered.
  • Companion Study Plan Assignments allow instructors to assign the Study Plan as a prerequisite to a test or quiz, guiding students through the topics they need to master.
*Available with select titles. Ask your Pearson rep for a list of titles included.

Offer instant step-by-step exercise support

NEW! Workspace Assignments

To gauge their level of understanding, instructors need to see students' "work" and problem-solving processes. Workspace Assignments allow students to work through an exercise step-by-step, and show their mathematical reasoning as they progress. Students receive immediate feedback after they complete each step, and helpful hints and videos offer guidance when they need it. When accessed via a mobile device, Workspace exercises use handwriting recognition software that allows students to naturally write out their answers. Each student's work is automatically graded and captured in the MyLab Math gradebook so instructors can easily pinpoint exactly where they need to focus their instruction.

Promote conceptual understanding

Interactive Courses 

Successful students have the ability to apply their knowledge to new situations and contexts. Making connections with mathematical concepts helps students internalize difficult ideas needed for success in current and future courses.

NEW! Interactive Courses engage students by combining text, videos, tutorials, and assessment into one seamless learning experience. Through a series of Interactive Assignments, students are encouraged to experience the material in new, dynamic, and engaging ways. Available now for Developmental Math, College Algebra, and Statistics. 

Help remediate and prepare students

Integrated Review and Redesign-Ready Course Options

Preparedness is one of the biggest challenges in many math courses. Pearson offers a variety of content and course options to support students with just-in-time remediation and key-concept review as needed.

  • MyLab Math with Integrated Review courses: Available for Developmental Mathematics through Calculus—can be used for just-in-time prerequisite review or for co-requisite courses. These courses provide videos on review topics, along with pre-made, assignable skill-review quizzes and personalized homework assignments integrated throughout your regular MyLab Math course content.
  • Redesign-Ready Course Options: Many new course models have emerged in recent years, as institutions "redesign" to help improve retention and results. At Pearson, we’re focused on tailoring solutions to support your plans and programs. In addition to the new Integrated Review courses,we offer new All-in-One solutions, non-STEM pathways, and STEM track options.

Build a course that fits your teaching style

Your course should fit your style. Pearson offers a wide variety of content options, addressing a range of approaches and learning styles. MyLab Math is tightly integrated with each author's style, offering a selection of author-created multimedia resources so your students have a consistent experience.

Motivate students to do more

MyLab Exercises and Learning Catalytics

Students are motivated to succeed when they're engaged in the learning experience and understand the relevance and power of math. Through online homework, students receive immediate feedback and tutorial assistance that motivates them to do more, which means they retain more knowledge, improve their test scores, and perform better in future courses. Plus, we're always adding new solutions to further engage students.

  • Exercises with Immediate Feedback: Homework and practice exercises in MyLab Math reflect the approach and learning style you choose, and regenerate algorithmically to give students unlimited opportunity for practice and mastery. You can choose from the many exercises available for the author’s approach—or even choose additional exercises from other MyLab Math 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.
  • Learning Catalytics fosters student engagement and peer-to-peer learning. Generate class discussion, guide your lecture, and promote peer-to-peer learning with real-time analytics. MyLab Math and MyLab Statistics now provide access to Learning Catalytics—a student response tool that uses students’ smartphones, tablets, or laptops to engage them in more interactive tasks and thinking.

Tailor your course to your students' needs

Data & Analytics

MyLab Math provides resources to help you assess and improve student results at every turn. A comprehensive gradebook with enhanced reporting functionality helps you efficiently manage your course.

  • 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

Easily scalable and shareable content

MyLab Math 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 MyLab Math 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.

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.
