Several Pearson authors have contributed “Achieve Your Potential” videos that show students how math can make a difference in their lives. These videos are available in the Orientation Chapter in their respective MyLab Math courses. Assign them within the first week of classes to inspire students to succeed.
Developed for the Blitzer Precalculus Series, MathTalk Videos connect mathematics to real-life events and interesting applications. These fun, instructional videos show students that math is relevant to their daily lives and are assignable in MyLab Math with correlating assessment.
For example, in the Introduction to MathTalk video, Andrew Vickers (Researcher at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Research Center) shows students that the same equations they are learning about in their College Algebra/Precalculus text are the same type of equations he used to pinpoint where cancer was located in this man’s body, ultimately saving his life. This powerfully connects what students are currently learning to something inspiring in real life.
More videos are available in the Blitzer Precalculus Series Multimedia Library and Exercise Manager.

Several Pearson programs now include a class-activity element to their approach: Dana Center Reasoning with Functions I & II, Rockswold Precalculus series and Blitzer Precalculus series. Project-based learning approaches allow students to actively explore real-world challenges and apply what they know to produce results that matter.
The following programs are specifically designed to help your students be better prepared.
