Learning that's personalized for you

Adaptive Learning

Not every student learns the same way or at the same rate. Several types of adaptive learning resources are built into MyLab Math, so you can focus on the topics where you need more practice.

  • With Companion Study Plan Assignments, your instructor can assign the Study Plan as a prerequisite to a test or quiz to guide students through the concepts they need to master. Students are then alerted when they are ready for the test.
  • MyLab Math can personalize homework assignments for you based on your performance on a test or quiz. This way, you can focus on just the topics you haven't yet mastered.
  • Your instructor can choose to make Skill Builder adaptive practice available with homework assignments. When you're struggling with an exercise, Skill Builder will deliver additional practice, tailored to your level of understanding, to help you build up the skills needed to complete your assignment successfully.

Instant step-by-step exercise support

NEW! Workspace Assignments

To gauge your level of understanding, instructors need to see students' "work" and problem-solving processes. Workspace Assignments allow you to work through an exercise step-by-step, and show your mathematical reasoning as you progress. You will receive immediate feedback after you complete each step, and helpful hints and videos offer guidance when you need it. When accessed via a mobile device, Workspace exercises use handwriting recognition software that allows you to naturally write out your answers.

Interactive Exercises with Immediate Feedback

MyLab Math's homework and practice exercises reflect the approach and learning style of your textbook or eText, and regenerate algorithmically to give you unlimited opportunity for practice and mastery.

Most exercises include learning aids, such as guided solutions, sample problems, and extra help as you're working through them, and they offer helpful feedback when you enter incorrect answers. A variety of multimedia resources are also available in the homework and study plan exercises. You can link to the ebook, video clips, and animations to improve your understanding of key concepts. Videos are captioned in English, and several courses are also captioned in Spanish.
