Using MyLab

MyLab is software that comes with the textbooks for Math 10 and Math 20, and some higher level math classes as well. Many of LCC's past Math 20 students have found it enormously helpful.

A student who buy a used textbook can buy an access code at the back counter of the LCC Bookstore for $15, but there is a very limited supply. Access codes can also be purches online at Pearson MyLab and Mastering but this is more expensive. (However, that website does sometimes offer free temporary access codes that last 17 days.)

Students can sell the unopened access code packet back to the LCC Bookstore for $10. Please do this if you have no interest in MyLab. Not only do you get money, but the bookstore gets another code to sell to a student who wants it.

Some students use Craigslist to buy and sell MyLab access codes.

What can MyLab do?

If you do not have internet access at home, the Math Resource Center has computers dedicated to for MyLab use.

Here is how to use MyLab. Find the "access code" from your textbook. Then visit Pearson MyLab and Mastering and select Student under the registration options. Sign in with the "course ID" of white78154. Create a Pearson Account or sign in if you already have one. Within your Pearson Account add the Math 20 course using the "access code" from your textbook. Now you are ready to enjoy all those features listed above!
