Online homework, tutorial & testing from Pearson for middle school through college math
MathXL is an online homework, tutorial and assessment system from publishing giant Pearson. The system includes tutorials that walk students through solving math problems, as well as customizable and editable content for online homework assignments, quizzes and tests correlated to specific standards or objectives as well as to chapters in Pearson’s textbooks. Based on those test results, MathXL also creates personalized study plans for students, with recommendations of tutorial exercises they should focus on. Homework and assessments are graded automatically by the system, but teachers can also use MathXL to manage their entire gradebook, including assignments, projects and tests conducted outside MathXL.
Although Pearson says MathXL can be used alongside any math textbook, the system is tightly aligned with Pearson’s hundreds of math and statistics textbooks. MathXL also powers Pearson’s full math courseware products like MyMathLab and MyStatLab, which include full e-book versions of those texts.
However, MathXL can also be purchased separately as a cheaper alternative for teachers and schools that don’t need or want the full sequence of course content nor the e-textbook. Schools (or, in the case of higher education, students themselves) pay about $50 per year per student for a full year of MathXL access as part of their online, blended or face-to-face courses.
The Pearson family of math learning products has solutions for all kinds of educational needs.
MathXL® is a powerful online homework, tutorial, and assessment system that accompanies Pearson textbooks in Mathematics and Statistics. With MathXL, instructors can create, edit, and assign online homework and tests using algorithmically generated exercises correlated at the objective level to the textbook. They can also create and assign their own online exercises for added flexibility. All student work is tracked in MathXL’s online grade book. Students can take chapter tests in MathXL and receive personalized study plans based on their test results. The study plan diagnoses weaknesses and links students directly to tutorial exercises for the objectives they need to study and retest. Students can also access supplemental learning aids, such as animations and video clips, directly from selected exercises.
MathXL® Tutorials on CD
This CD-ROM delivers all of MathXL’s algorithmically generated practice exercises in an off-line format. Exercises are correlated at the objective level to the exercises in the textbook, and each exercise is accompanied by an example and a guided solution designed to involve students in the solution process. Selected exercises may also include a video clip to help students visualize concepts. The software provides helpful feedback for incorrect answers and can generate printed summaries of students’ progress. Not available for courses in Calculus and Statistics.
MyMathLab® is a series of text-specific, easily customizable online courses for Pearson textbooks in Mathematics. Powered by CourseCompass™ (Pearson Education’s online teaching and learning environment) and by MathXL (our online homework, tutorial, and assessment system), MyMathLab gives you the tools you need to deliver all or a portion of your course online, whether your students are in a lab setting or working from home.
MyMathLab provides a rich and flexible set of course materials, featuring free-response exercises correlated directly to the textbook that instructors can assign for online homework, quizzes, and tests. These exercises regenerate algorithmically for unlimited practice and mastery, and in homework and practice modes, each exercise is accompanied by an interactive guided solution and sample problem. MyMathLab provides students with additional multimedia resources, such as video lectures, animations, and an eBook, to independently improve their understanding and performance. MyMathLab’s online grade book automatically tracks all student results and gives the instructor control over how to calculate final grades. Because MyMathLab courses are delivered via the CourseCompass online learning platform, instructors also have the ability to customize their course using a variety of course-management tools.
Part of the MyMathLab series, MyStatLab courses include all the great features of MyMathLab, but for Pearson Addison-Wesley and Pearson Prentice Hall textbooks in Statistics. MyStatLab courses use the same technology as MyMathLab courses (the MathXL Player) to display online tutorial exercises that regenerate algorithmically for unlimited practice and mastery. MyStatLab courses also include essay questions that can be assigned for online tests and quizzes. In addition to all the great features of MyMathLab, MyStatLab courses also include Java applets, statistical software, and other resources designed specifically to help students succeed in Statistics.
