Have you ever wanted to study a subject, but had no idea how to get started?
Hey, me too!
Luckily for you, if you’re using Pearson’s MyMathLab, you have a whole suite of study tools already available to help you out.
This excellent educational software does everything it can to help us students knockout the intimidating task of studying.
Let’s see what MyMathLab has to offer from a student’s point-of-view.
The eText advantage: Study anywhere
More of a convenience than an explicit tool, MyMathLab comes with a high-quality eText for whatever math class you’re involved in.
This portability means no more lugging around a massive textbook. Good news for your back!
It also means that you can whip out your textbook anywhere you can get an internet connection on any smartphone, tablet, or computer.
Can’t remember a set of formulas? No problem, pull up the eText on your phone and have your question answered in seconds.
Sitting down for a quick study session is such a useful ability to have. I should know, I’ve used it myself tons of times for my classes. It’s handy in a pinch when you need to know something right away or when you want more information.
It would be best if you were taking advantage of this whenever you can. With the MyMathLab eText, you shouldn’t have any issues keeping up on your reading.
Pre-built study plans
Yeah, you read that right, pre-built study plans. Now you don’t even need to make a study plan on your own!
MyMathLab provides students with in-depth study plans for every part of every section of every chapter of your text.
Each study plan comes prepared with videos, practice problems, quizzes, and even animations. Also, each study plan tracks different stats like time spent, correct answers, and incorrect answers.
You won’t need to wonder about how you’re doing if the software tracks it all for you.
If you’d like to see how you’re progressing in the study plans for the whole eText, then you can check that as well.
Completing portions of a study plan will also award you with mastery points, turning it into a game of sorts. This aspect can add an element of ‘fun’ for some of you, which might help with your motivation to study.
You can treat it as a game and be the best ‘player’ in your class.
In any case, the best part of the study plans is that they’re probably your most valuable tool for practicing the course material.
The practice assignments provided in each plan are chock full of different problems, amounting to hundreds of available problems for you to work out.
No need to do it all, but you’ll never be short of the ability to practice.
And what happens when you practice your course material? That’s right. You crush your exams.
And what good student doesn’t want to ace their exams?
Guided notes and lectures
Maybe you don’t like taking notes or don’t know how to take useful notes.
Well, don’t worry, because MyMathLab has that base covered too.
You’ve got a complete set of guided notes for the entire text available at your fingertips.
Take a look:
That’s not even the best part. The best part is that you don’t also need to read the text to fill in the guided notes.
Pearson has provided us students with a set of “Author in Action Videos,” where the author of the text will guide you through everything you need to know about each chapter.
Getting all A’s is a breeze when studying is this easy.
Now that you’ve done some studying on the topic of studying let’s have a quick recap.
MyMathLab offers these great study tools:
- A complete textbook you can read on your phone
- Comprehensive, in-depth study plans to get you ready for exams
- A full set of guided notes AND videos produced by the author of the textbook.
I know how anxiety-inducing studying can be, but with great tools like these, anyone can find success in their studies.
From one student to another, ace those classes!
