“I want to make sure that my next math teacher uses MathXL.”

Hillsborough Community College (FL)

“As a person 30 years removed from his last math class I wish to compliment you on an excellent presentation. I have found the test examples and graphics very effective in refreshing my algebra skills. I am grateful for the effect this will have as a foundation of a path in computer programming and algorithmic development. Thank you.”

Grossmont-Cuyamaca Community College District (CA)

“I am deeply impressed with MathXL. All my homework is on the internet. If I don't understand a problem, the system will walk me through it step by step, then give me a new problem (for credit) based on the same principles. One out of every ten problems comes with a video of a teacher working it out on a blackboard--then you get to try at home. Best of all, you have INSTANT feedback. That's the thing that killed me back in the day. There were plenty of times I thought I understood the principles. When I got my homework back two weeks later, I was genuinely surprised to see I'd failed miserably. The teacher had already moved on to new material by the time we had feedback on the old stuff, so if you misunderstood one of the building blocks, you were screwed. With this, if the walk-through and book and videos aren't enough to explain the homework, you know EXACTLY what to ask the teacher in class. Instead of coasting through for the sake of a grade, I'm at risk of actually learning some math for the first time in my life. Wow. I can't believe how optimistic I feel about a subject that has repeatedly kicked me in the a**. This is awesome.”

Jefferson Community College in Louisville (KY)

“I've always hated math and have never understood its language. Since enrolling in a course with your book, in just over a month, all the concepts that I couldn't excel past in high school are now an exciting challenge for me to pursue. Thank you.”

Grossmont-Cuyamaca Community College District (CA)

“I love MathXL. I am able to learn math on my own and take the time that I need to learn it without being embarrassed. It's great and I will always use it.”

Grossmont-Cuyamaca Community College District (CA)

“MathXL dominates all math programs on this planet. It is a good way to excel in Math. Everybody should bow down to it.”

Grossmont-Cuyamaca Community College District (CA)

“I have been very pleased with your MathXL program. I like the fact that each problem comes with an example or the option to see the text pages. This is very helpful. Keep up the good work.”

Grossmont-Cuyamaca Community College District (CA)

“I was able to work at my own pace. I didn’t feel like I was pressured to keep up with anyone, and I didn’t feel like I was being held back by anyone.”

Northern Virginia Community College (VA)

“This has pretty much been the only thing ever to help me grasp concepts in math and I hope that you keep it for future semesters.”

University of Missouri-Columbia (MO)

“I enjoyed the ability to work at my own pace as well as having so much extra information available to me. Many different sources available made feel like this course was designed for success.”

Boise State University (ID)


Instructor Testimonials

“My students have a much better learning experience when they complete their homework in MathXL. They receive the support they need from the same problems and guided solutions. The homework average for my class increased from 80% to 98% when students used MathXL. The average test grades increased from 82% to 95% when I began requiring that all students complete MathXL homework assignments.”

Sharon Testone, Onondaga Community College (NY)

“Thanks so much for your help! I really like MathXL-this is the first semester I have used it and the results have been fantastic. For the first time in my 15-year teaching experience, students are coming to class prepared! It is joy to teach again. The program is very user-friendly too.”

Darla Ottman, Elizabethtown Community and Technical College (KY)

“The homework system in MathXL is a fantastic way to facilitate student engagement with the course material in a classroom. I have noticed a distinct improvement in my students overall performance on their written exams. The key to success for math students is practice practice practice, and MathXL provides that opportunity through algorithmically generated problems with excellent videos, animations, and textbook references.”

Jim Voss, Front Range Community College (CO)

“My students have only good things to say about MathXL. They can get immediate feedback and help, which enhances their feelings of success. It's not a panacea, but I've really enjoyed using MathXL in my classes. I no longer dread assigning homework for credit, because I don't have to face those big stacks of papers!”

Nicole Lang, North Hennepin Community College (MN)

“There is no comparison between Pearson training and support and the competition! When I call or email for help-whether from my rep or from the MathXL faculty support line-I always get the help I need. I have never had an experience of not hearing back from someone.

          I have seen that students who really take advantage of what MathXL has to offer are the ones who do better at test time!”

Janet Macaluso, Eastern New Mexico University, Roswell Campus (NM)
