The purpose of the study is identify whether or not teachers and students believe that “MyMathlLab” (MML), a web-based program, is beneficial in learning or teaching Algebra.Data will be gathered from instructors who use MML in Community College Algebra courses. The instructors will be surveyed about their perceptions of MML From these instructors’ Algebra courses, data will also be gathered from student surveys. The questions in the student surveys are designed to identify whether the students believe that MML is helpful in learning Algebra. Additionally, data will be gathered from observations that will be made by the researcher in the Algebra classes. Lastly, student scores from four Algebra classes will be compared. Two classes will be using MML and the other two classes will not be using MML. Access to students’ test scores is required to examine the differences between test scores of two Algebra classes that use MML and two Algebra classes that do not use MML.
