Some course sections require MyMathLab

Check with your instructor before the start of the semester if you need to know. Some of our courses have a custom textbook, which is only sold in a la carte form (loose leaf with three holes). These books are only sold new at ACC bookstores, and therefore all include MyMathLab access. If you are taking a course that does not use a custom book, you may want to wait until after the first day of class to purchase materials.

Options for students without internet access

If you don't have a computer, or don't have broadband internet access, you can still enroll in lecture sections that require MyMathLab. Talk to your instructor about your situation, and he or she will come up with an accommodation.

These two types of sections require MyMathLab, and do not make accommodations for students without internet access:

  • Distance Learning (online) and Computer Mediated courses require students to have regular access to broadband internet and a computer that meets the minimum requirements to run MyMathLab. You cannot take one of these classes without these resources.
  • Lecture sections that require MyMathLab can be adapted to students who do not have access to adequate resources. An arrangement can be made between the instructor and the student. The arrangement may be to work exclusively from the textbook, to turn in printed versions of the MyMathLab assignments, or some other plan that accommodates the student's need. Students in this situation should contact the instructor at the beginning of the semester to make arrangements.

Using MyMathLab on your own

Each year, the math department sets up MyMathLab course ID's for general student access, so that students can benefit from the features available in MyMathLab even if their instructor does not set up a customized course. Be aware that work done in these courses cannot be viewed by your instructor, and therefore will not contribute toward your grade. See the following:

Options for purchasing a textbook and/or MyMathLab

All students can purchase a new textbook from an ACC bookstore, which comes bundled with a Student MyMathLab access code. This is generally the most cost-effective way to get both a hard copy of the textbook and access to MyMathLab.

Students in sections that require MyMathLab also have the option of purchasing just MyMathLab access, as a stand-alone product. MyMathLab includes an electronic form of the textbook, so students purchasing MyMathLab only can still access pages from the textbook.
