Developmental Math Series

Every Student Can Succeed

Elayn Martin-Gay firmly believes that every math student can succeed. She has taught math at the University of New Orleans for more than 25 years and earned numerous teaching awards along the way. Early in her teaching career, Martin-Gay developed a series of highly acclaimed lecture videos to support developmental math students in their quest for success. These videos formed the foundation for the fourteen arithmetic and algebra texts she would author.

Student Organizer

Are you always trying to find where you put your notes from class?

Would you like to be better organized with your notes and homework assignments when you're studying for a test?

The Student Organizer guides you through the three main components of studying effectively—note-taking, practice, and homework—and helps you develop the habits that will enable you to succeed in current and future math courses.

The Student Organizer can be packaged with the text in loose-leaf, notebook-ready format and is also available for download in MyMathLab and the Instructor Resource Center.

The Student Organizer is available with © 2016 & 2015 Worktexts, © 2013 Hardbacks, and the All in One text.

Video Organizer

The Video Organizer encourages students to take notes and work practice exercises while watching Elayn Martin-Gay's lecture series. It provides ample space for students to write down key definitions and rules throughout the lectures, and "Play" and "Pause" button icons prompt students to follow along with Elayn for some exercises while they try others on their own.

The Video Organizer is available with © 2016 & 2015 Worktexts, © 2014 & 2013 Hardbacks, and the All in One text.
