Personalized Homework in MyMathLab

February 28, 2011 at 6:53 am 1 comment

As I mentioned a few weeks ago, I am using MyMathLab personalized homework in my online elementary algebra course this semester. In this blog I will go over the steps for creating personalized homework.

In my class, each week begins with a quiz that students must take to gain access to that week’s homework. There are 3 sections of homework due each week on Tuesday, Wednesday, & Thursday. Students can then go back and retake the quiz until the following Monday. Based on a student’s performance on the initial quiz attempt, the homework assignments are shortened for each objective a student masters on the quiz.

I already had homework assignments for each section. After I created a quiz for a particular week, all I had to do was connect the existing homework assignments to the new quiz. The following video shows how that is done.

I am a math instructor at College of the Sequoias in Visalia, CA. Each Monday (during the semester) 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 –

    Thank you for sharing this idea of personalized HW in MML. I was not aware MML could do this as ALEKS does. I will be trying out the personalized hw option with my online courses.
