Why use MyMathLab? Asynchronous learning Instant feedback Multimedia learning aides More guided practice, less grading Ready-made assessment questions & assignments Ability to post other digital materials Easy to monitor individual progress
MyMathLab troubles? Syntax entry is sometimes arcane Complicated, unintuitive menu system Requires more online time for everyone Authentication concerns Tendency to micro-manage Students with no internet access at home
