“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)
“Since I first began requiring online homework using MathXL in my college algebra class in the summer of 2005, I have seen a tremendous improvement in student success. Passing rates have gone up around 10%, test averages have increased 9%, and the number of students earning an A in the course has gone up an astounding 25%! This is a strong indication that the students are learning the material more thoroughly than they did by simply doing homework out of the book.
As an added bonus, the students feel more involved in the course and responsible for their own learning. Thus, my withdrawal rates have decreased by 10-15%.
I am so thrilled to have finally found a way to require my students to do homework in a way that keeps them engaged, forces them to truly learn and understand the material, and also saves me the headache of grading paper-and-pencil homework assignments!”
Brooke Quinlan, Hillsborough Community College (FL)
“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)

“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."
