Customizable Content Management
MathZone's flexibility provides instructors the option to use MathZone's existing courses and resources or their own content and assignments.
Instructors can control the help buttons students use while completing custom assignments and can even implement a feature that allows them to see the work behind students' answers.
Instructors can assign over 45,000 algorithmic homework problems from any of our math textbooks–great for review assignments at the beginning of the semester.
MathZone ensures consistency in assignment delivery across a group of courses through the Master Syllabus option.
Finally, MathZone offers instructors the ability to set their tolerance for answers, accommodating a wider range of right answers.
Student Study Tools
Students learn mathematics by doing mathematics, and MathZone provides students with a variety of powerful learning tools, including algorithmic exercises, assignable multimedia tools and live online tutoring—all tied to the textbook.
Homework & Practice Exercises
MathZone provides students with unlimited practice and immediate feedback, including guided solutions. Instructors can assign MathZone's pre-built, extensive algorithmically-generated math problems or their own customized exercises.
With MathZone, students can watch videos to reinforce textbook topics section by section and chapter by chapter. MathZone also offers conceptual videos that relate fun activities like shooting hoops to learning math.
MathZone allows instructors to hold virtual office hours using the Online Classroom feature. In the online setting, instructors can communicate with students either publicly or privately via a chat forum or easy-to-use Whiteboard.
Online Peer Study Group
Students have the ability to meet with their peers and practice math exercises together in a virtual environment using MathZone's Student Study Center.
NetTutor™ Online Tutoring
MathZone offers online tutoring via NetTutor™, a web-based chat room that allows students to use their own computers to access learning materials with live corresponding tutors.
- There is no need to purchase additional hardware or software; access simply requires an Internet connection.
- Tutor hours are built around peak study times.
- Materials and answers are archived so that questions do not need to be answered twice and students do not have to wait if tutors are busy.
Auto-grading and Reporting
MathZone automatically grades and reports homework, quizzes and tests, all through a fully integrated grade book that can be exported in one click to Microsoft Excel, WebCT or Blackboard.
Students are automatically populated as they register for a MathZone course.
Using MathZone's "Show your Work" feature, students can be required to show the work they've done to solve a problem.
Course administrators can monitor student progress across multiple courses all via one master course.
Finally, instructors can set assignments to be repeatable or not and can categorize assignments to automatically distribute students' grades.
