The Squires/Wyrick eCourse Series

Three Steps to Proven Success

John Squires and Karen Wyrick have used their success in the classroom and the lab to design this MyMathLab eCourse series, which offers students a guided learning path through content that has been organized into small, manageable portions.

John Squires

John Squires has been teaching math for more than 20 years. He was the architect of the nationally acclaimed “Do the Math” program at Cleveland State Community College and now serves as head of the math department at Chattanooga State Community College, where he implemented course redesign throughout the department. John is a nationally recognized expert on course redesign, giving lectures and serving as a redesign consultant to colleges around the country. He has most recently focused on better integrating developmental math into the fourth year high school math course curriculum, while the Chattanooga State SAILS (Seamless Alignment and Integrated Learning Support) program he leads has successfully prepared 8,000 high school students for college level math.

Karen Wyrick

Karen Wyrick is the current chair of the math department at Cleveland State Community College and has been teaching math there for more than 20 years. She has been selected by the students as the college’s best instructor more than once, and was awarded a 2011 AMATYC Teaching Excellence Award. Karen played an integral role in Cleveland State’s Bellwether Award-winning “Do the Math” redesign project, and speaks frequently on course redesign at colleges throughout the nation.

Guided Learning Path

The Squires and Wyrick MyMathLab eCourses are a little different from most of the MyMathLab courses you might have seen! The eCourses are organized by mini-modules and topics, rather than by chapters and sections. Each mini-module covers one week’s worth of content, allowing for more frequent assessment of developmental students. Animations have also been added to select tutorials in the second edition of Developmental Mathematics to provide additional student support on difficult topics.

The Squires/Wyrick Learning Path

Students are asked to complete three tasks for each topic:watch the tutorial, check understanding of important concepts with the Concept Check questions, and complete the homework assignment.

In the Step-by-step videos, John Squires narrates as he works through each step in the solution process for the examples, while also pointing out important definitions, rules, and procedures along the way.

The video is followed by interactive Guided Examples that ask students to “click through” each step of the solution.

The tutorial concludes with a Study Guide that offers a concise summary of key definitions and procedures for the topic.

Check for conceptual understanding.

After watching the tutorial and before moving on to the homework assignment, students answer four multiple-choice questions to ensure they grasp the key concepts.

Complete the homework.

The majority of questions in every MyMathLab-based homework assignment offer MyMathLab’s “View an Example” and “Help Me Solve This” features, but the final 3–5 questions in each assignment require students to solve the problem on their own, without any learning aids.

Class Test the eCourse

Class testing tells us what students and faculty think of the content and presentation, while letting you "test drive" the eCourse. If you can't really know a book until you've used it, this is an opportunity to do just that. Here’s how the process works:

We will send you a MyMathLab class test code, along with enough copies of the MyMathLab Notebook (either bound or unbound) to use in your course. You can choose to class test a chapter or an entire course! After completing the chapter/course, we will send a questionnaire for you and your students to complete. You return all of the completed questionnaires to us in the prepaid envelope included with your class test materials. We provide you with a summary of your students' feedback and use them to improve the product.

Get Started

Simply complete the questionnaire below to get started. Once we receive your information, we will be in touch about setting up your class test and providing you with the materials.

Note: all fields are required.

The MyMathLab Notebook can be packaged with the Squires and Wyrick MyMathLab access kit or downloaded from the MyMathLab eCourse. This notebook shows key examples from the step-by-step videos and provides extra space for students to take notes. It also offers additional helpful hints and practice exercises for every topic in the eCourse. The notebook is three-hole punched and unbound so that students can insert it into their course binder and add additional notes, solutions for their homework exercises, and additional practice work as needed. A bound version is also available for instructors to provide an extra teaching resource for the classroom. The second edition of the Developmental Mathematics MyMathLab Notebook has also been revised to provide additional problems with Guided Solutions.

Math Instructor Exchange

Over 5,000 educators are connecting and sharing ideas, energizing their classrooms and brainstorming teaching challenges via Pearson’s growing network of faculty communities.

And if you're currently teaching with MyMathLab, MathXL, MyStatLab or MyMathTest, then we invite you to join the Faculty Advisor Network, the user-exclusive group within Math Instructor Exchange. As a member of the FAN, you can share results, success strategies, and best practices, and be a part of ongoing product development.

Let's discover new ideas and break through barriers to teaching and learning. Together.
