Workspace Assignments

Offer instant step-by-step exercise support

Students often need extra support to boost their confidence and maintain focus in their math courses. Workspace Assignments provide step-by-step guidance—when and where students need help the most.

Workspace Assignments allow students to work through an exercise step-by-step, adjusting to the path each student takes and allowing them to show their mathematical reasoning as they progress. Each line is immediately assessed, and students receive feedback exactly when they need help—decreasing the guesswork and frustration they may encounter when solving a difficult problem on their own. Hints, videos, and next steps are available to further walk them through the problem-solving process.

Accessible from desktops, laptops, and mobile devices, students can complete their work wherever they are. When accessed via a mobile device, Workspace exercises use handwriting recognition software that allows students to naturally write out their answers with their fingertip or stylus.

Additionally, all of this data is captured in the MyLab Math gradebook—including each line of students' work, and any hints or next steps they requested. Instructors can easily identify exactly where students are struggling to spend class time teaching more effectively.
