MyMathLab – Got A Question?

September 13, 2010 at 5:49 am 4 comments

I’ve decided to build a page for frequently asked questions about MyMathLab, both from students and other instructors. I will continually update this post as the questions come in. In addition to using the search terms that typically bring viewers to my blog, I’d appreciate it if you sent questions my way. You can do that by leaving a comment, or by reaching me through the contact page at my web site –


I am a math instructor at College of the Sequoias in Visalia, CA. Each Monday I post an article related to MyMathLab on my blog. If there’s a particular topic you’d like me to address, or if you have a question or a comment, please let me know. You can reach me through the contact page on my website –

    I am thinking about requiring my students to keep a MathXL notebook – just a spiral, 1-subject notebook, where they do all of their problems. I’m not sure how I would choose to count that as a grade – right now I’m just thinking this through.

    What are your thoughts on this?

    Oh, and I forgot to say – thank you for this site and for this post in particular! I think this could be very helpful for all of us!

    I’m using mymathlab in my classes this semester. Is it possible to setup the homework to allow a student to go back and redo the home before the due date.

    For example, on exams I can setup multiple attempts. Is it possible to setup multiple attempts with homework?

      Hi Susan,
      Unless you set it up otherwise, students get an unlimited number of attempts on each question, so they can come back and try problems any time unless the deadline has expired.
      For students to attempt a problem again, they click on the problem and then on the “Similar Exercise” button.
