Stuart Wright, Instructor Piedmont Virginia Community College
Stuart discusses how his team, along with the help of MyMathLab, have helped improve students' academic success at Piedmont Virginia Community College.
"After I saw the students' reaction to MyMathLab and how easy it was to use, I continued to use MyMathLab in my courses. "
"If it had not been for MyMathLab and the tools that we there, he would not be where he is today, about to get an Associate's Degree from our institution."
"We wanted to try to meet an everygrowing set of needs and challenges and we found a product that really makes a difference. Within two years of adopting MyMathLab in the developmental coursework, we got a 10% increase in our passrates and that was something really exciting."
"MyMathLab allowed my student to do [problems] and redo [problems] and not bog down the rest of the class."
"I've seen great successes with students. Many of our students are non traditional students. They work multiple jobs and they have children of their own, so their schedules are all over the place. Balancing their time is very hard. MyMathLab allows them to work on their homework later at night, early in the morning--it's been very beneficial for our students of all ages."
"We can set up the gradebooks so that it counts each section the correct percentage that we want... all the grades can be exported out and a letter grade can be assigned and then those can easily be uploaded to most course management systems."
"The immediate response rate and interactive activities have really aided the active learning experience for my students, which highly improves their overall grade."
This video tells the story of a student who, at first weary of using technology, grew to love MyMathLab and got an A in her course.
"Personalized homework helps students understand the material and lets them focus on what they misunderstood or did not grasp the first time they went through the material."
"I like all the diagnostic materials that are available, the data that I can see who knows what, how long they worked, where they're struggling so I can focus my teaching around the areas where students need help the most."
"I appreciate how much MyMathLab does for the students and the instructors. I can create question pools. Students like it because they can take out-of-class quizzes that they can take 5-6 times. It forces them to think on what they're doing."
"I had a student who said MyMathLab was like having an infinitely patient professor standing by your side."
"I really liked how the software has a lot of icons for the textbook and the videos; it has 'solve example', examples that you can work through to practice a problem; I think the study plan at the end of the homework assignment was a good idea so you can practice what you need to work on."
"With Pearson's MyMathLab, you can get immediate feedback. If you have something wrong, you can go back and see the right answer or choose 'Help Me Solve This'."
"I have been really impressed with the way that MyMathLab has grown over the years that I've been using it. I think it provides a wonderful level of support for students that we didn't have prior to using this technology."
Math doesn't come easy to me, so having the ability to go back and watch the videos of how to do a certain problem is great. I can watch that video as many times as I need.
It's a fact: Higher Education's innovative MyMathLab (www.mymathlab.com) is helping thousands of struggling, and accomplished, college students achieve remarkable math success. Hear how important the program is to students and faculty at Quinsigamond Community College in Worcester, MA, and Cosumnes River College in Sacramento, CA. It all adds up to a dramatic increase in math performance.
MyMathLab is an awesome tool to use outside of class.
Clair loves the fact that MyMathLab gives her flexibility in turning in her homework. Furthermore, the technology helps her out every time she doesn't understand a problem.
MyMathLab is used for all Developmental Math class at Seton Hall University. The department chose it because they felt it was a complete package for the students. They've found that after using MyMathLab, students are more apt to do their homework in their next math class!
Josephine likes MyMathLab's 'Show Me an Example' feature because it helps her understand a problem if she's having difficulty figuring it out. Practice quizzes and tests alert her to when she needs to work harder!
Sophie's professor requires MyMathLab and she says that it answers a lot of her questions that aren't necessarily answered in the textbook or in lectures.
A friend told Molly that MyMathLab helped her understand the class 100% better and this advice encouraged Molly to use the technology as well! Using MyMathLab helps Molly prepare for an exam, especially by working on practice problems!
Amanda appreciates the tutorials that are offered with each type of problem on MyMathLab. Being able to go step-by-step through a problem is very helpful!
Professor Watts has found that MyMathLab helps students become more independent learners. 'They are much more responsive in class, they've looked over their materials and they ask better questions.' It also helps her as the instructor, because she can see where students need help, then tailor the class to students' learning needs.
The reliability of this software is very good. I also like the quick help I receive when I have problems with this software. It is easy to use and understand. It provides students with immediate feedback on their work. It helps me greatly in the grading and keeping track of student's work. This can not be overstated since I have many students in my courses. It helps me to keep organized on my lesson plans. It helps the students to keep organized on their work that I assign. This software is great for on-line and lecture classes.
