MyLab Math accompanies the 4th edition of Basic Business Statistics.

MyLab Math has been designed and refined with a single purpose in mind: to create those moments of understanding that transform the difficult into the clear and obvious.

MyLab Math is a supported eLearning program that delivers a highly effective out-of-the box tutorial experience

With comprehensive homework, quiz, test and activity options, instructors can manage all of their online learning needs with MyLab Math if they choose.

Please Note: The duration of access to MyLab Math is set by your instructor for your specific unit of study. To access MyLab Math you will need a Course ID from your instructor.

Berenson’s clear and consistent explanations of how and why accepted statistical techniques are used and fresh, conversational writing style helps students with their comprehension of the concepts.

Berenson’s ‘real world’ business focus takes students beyond the pure theory by connecting statistical concepts to functional areas of business through engaging examples. Examples of real people working in real business environments, using statistics to tackle real business challenges bring the subject to life.

Features

MyLab Math includes:

  • a customisable Assignment Manager that you can use to set homework and quizzes, supported by a powerful gradebook which provides instant access to students’ progress and results.
  • Hundreds of preloaded, automatically graded assignments which save instructors hours of marking time. Many of these exercises contain algorithmically generated values to ensure students get as much practice as they need.
  • ‘Help Me Solve This’ hints which walk students through the problem with step-by-step help and feedback without giving away the answer, to guide them to a clear understanding of the subject.
  • A wide range of video resources which bring the subject to life. NEW StatTalk Videos hosted by fun-loving statistician Andrew Vickers who takes to the streets of Brooklyn, NY to demonstrate important statistical concepts through interesting stories and real-life events. This series of videos and corresponding autograded questions will actually help students understand statistics. Australian Fusion videos feature Australian business people using statistics in their everyday life.
  • StatCrunch, a web-based statistical software which allows users to share data sets, results and reports so that students can quickly and easily analyse data sets from exercises and the text. Users can access tens of thousands of shared data sets, create and conduct online surveys, perform complex analyses using the powerful statistical software, and generate compelling reports.
  • Learning Catalytics, a "bring your own device" student engagement, assessment, and classroom intelligence system can be accessed inside MyLab Math.

Key features for students

  • An eText version of Basic Business Statistics.
  • Single sign-on through selected Learning Management Systems
  • Personalised, Adaptive Study Plan! Because every student learns differently, a study plan is generated from each student’s results on a pre-test. Students can clearly see which topics they have mastered and, more importantly, which they need to work on.
  • Unlimited practice with instant feedback! Automatically graded exercises, problems and applications– saving time and providing immediate, helpful feedback.

Pearson eTexts are a full version of the textbook accessed online through your MyLab subscription. Access to the Pearson eText will continue for as long as your MyLab Math subscription is active.

Pearson eTexts allow you to highlight, add your own study notes, and review your instructor's personalised notes anytime, anywhere. Access online or via your iPad or other Android devices.
