Pearson Education in Fort Wayne, Indiana - Pearson has serious issues

2.3
Details
Namely, their videos are unviewable in their Mathlab product. The very videos that are used to explain the methods for solving math problems consistently will not load beyond roughly 30%. There are multiples examples of Pearsons failure on youtube. I think I have succinctly described the problem. I fail to see why my complaint has to be 100 words in length. This seems quite arbitrary and unnecessary. Namely, their videos are unviewable in their Mathlab product.

Pearson Education in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina - Terrible video lessons and homework for my mathlab

The accompanying textbook;Mathematical Ideas,for my math class,Math 115 does not teach the student anything about a particular point of a lesson and you end up completely unprepared for the homework. I feel blindsided every time I attempt my homework. The videos and accompanying textbook definitely need improvement. The corresponding video lessons also do not provide enough instruction for the homework problems. I am forced to look up and view you tube videos to understand the topics, such as logic, Venn diagrams etc. This has been a very stressful experience for an online math class. I have not learned very much from this experience with my math labs. Thankfully, this is the last required course for me with Pearson.

Pearson Education Mymathlab Program Review from Harlingen, Texas

Mymathlab is the worst possible math tool a college program can impose on a student. I have found myself wasting hours of valuable time in a mini-mester to figure out what the software wants me to answer as opposed to the answer I can mathematically prove. Because of Mymathlab, I have to work twice as hard because I am learning new math skills while also learning how to enter answers into the program. Somehow, my homework and practice quiz grades range from 90-100% but the quiz and exam grades are failing. My math professor and tutor both confirmed my math is good and I am learning fine. This program disagrees because of trivial things like typing "2" instead of "2.00" on a problem that does not call for decimal coordinates. It feels like the program wants me to fail and that is not what I pay for in time and money when I go to school. Not to mention, it uses old math concepts and rejects new methodology, which is counter-productive for an aspiring mathematician like myself. In short, if you encounter this program in school, raise *** with the math department until they remove it. This program is garbage.

My Math Lab is sheer torture.It does nothing to explain the material, it is just a photocopy of the text book. I purchased the text book, but our professor requires us to access the identical information at My Math Lab. It is not formatted in a friendly way, cannot...

Pearson Education in Hialeah, Florida - Worse math program ever.

1.3
Details
I would throw it out and start over. Everything from the font to the organization makes it difficult to understand and study. A student should not have to spend days figuring out how to use the program before they can start their homework. The font is tiny and difficult to read and cannot be magnified. The graphs are horrible as well. The e-text book starts an explanation at the end of a page and then finishes on the back of the page make it difficult to grasp the entire problem. You have to browse through several questions of the study plan to find the area you need to review because the descriptions are useless as is the program. The videos only reference once part of the problem and then different problems are linked to the same video because it's in the same chapter though the process is not the same. You have to flip from section to section to complete assignments and review. And why is the review cumulative? It doesn't even assess what has been learned and update the plan. Entering answers should also not be so difficult. The fact that an entire tutorial is needed to be able to answer questions and needs to be provided before every quiz should be a hint that there is a problem. I used Alek's for several other classes and that is a program that helps you succeed. It is easy to understand and navigate not like this ill conceived disaster. Hire those developers so that students have a chance to learn something besides how to waste time sifting through the useless study plan that does not provide access to material you need. I am so disgusted and disappointed with this online tool, that I considered dropping the class after 2 days of using this *** except all the classes now use this deformed abortion of a learning aide. I hope they got a *** of a kickback for destroying student's motivation and ability to learn math. Maybe my expectations were too high when I though it would be useful. I wish there was a lower rating below very poor for me to select. Luckily there are other online resources such as youtube to learn from. I am confident that whatever knowledge I walk away with from this experience was not obtained in any way or form from MML.

Pearson Education - Forced Memorization is not Teaching its a Tool of Confusion

1.0
Details
My experience with Pearsons MyMathLab has been the worst "educational" method I have ever experienced. My professor has been able to pass the buck on to a *** thrown together software half of the time i spend in my math class usually involve the professor explaining questions or problems with homework of the night before on MyMathLab allowing me to relive the nightmare the next day. Almost all of my assignments are online with the exception of my exams where those are taken in class which are usually written with different terminology than what MyMathLab uses just to add to the confusion. so needless to say my in class quizzes are usually just passing as to where i score extremely well on MyMathLab. Unfortunately MyMathLab homework and quizzes dont actually add to much to my grade, unlike the in class work where notes are not allowed for in class exams. The professor has stated numerous times that we the students will only "learn" the subject matter by doing the homework. The homework usually takes me any where from 2 1/2 hours to 4 hours on average, the longest time spent to date 7 1/2 hours on one homework and quiz assignment, because its "teaching" me the way i should solve these types of equations as they are given. Reading the actual book is just as bad as the software, and states in the beginning that many steps have been removed to "simplify" how the problems are solved which is choppy at best. So I have my final today in the class in about an hour and have faced the fact I am walking into a failing grade given i dont really know how to solve equations without "Help Me Solve" (which is just ridiculous make to many mistakes the question resets to a new question) or "View Example" because that is how i was taught to solve equations with assistance and examples via MyMathLab.
