Personalize learning for each student

Not every student learns the same way or at the same rate. Personalized learning in the MyLab gives instructors the flexibility to incorporate the approach that best suits the needs of their course and students. 

  • Available for select MyLab 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.

Offer instant step-by-step exercise support

Workspace Assignments allow students to work through an exercise step by step, adjusting to the path each student takes and allowing them to show their mathematical reasoning as they progress, receiving feedback when and where they need it most. When accessed via a mobile device, workspace exercises use handwriting recognition software that allows students to naturally write out their answers with their fingertip or stylus.

Promote conceptual understanding

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.

Interactive MyLab™ Math and MyLab™ Statistics courses offer a new type of digital learning experience. Written entirely in MyLab and powered by new Interactive Assignments, the courses encourage students to interact with material in new, dynamic, and engaging ways.

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, Integrated Review courses can be used for just-in-time prerequisite review or for co-requisite courses. They 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.

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 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 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.

    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.

  • 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 Learning Catalytics—an interactive student response tool that uses students’ smartphones, tablets, or laptops to engage them in more sophisticated tasks and thinking. Instructors can:
    • Pose a variety of open-ended questions that help your students develop critical thinking skills
    • Monitor responses to find out where students are struggling
    • Use real-time data to adjust your instructional strategy and try other ways of engaging your students during class
    • Manage student interactions by automatically grouping students for discussion, teamwork, and peer-to-peer learning.

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. 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 MyLab Math 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 MathXL Exercise Builder (MEB) within MyLab Math lets you create static and algorithmic online exercises for your assignments. 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.
