For corequisite support courses that accompany Quantitative Reasoning or Liberal Arts Math.
This MyLab Math access card offers 18-week access.
Flexible content, tailor-made for corequisite support courses
Corequisite Support Modules for Quantitative Reasoning or Liberal Arts Math provide targeted developmental review, and can be used in conjunction with any credit-level materials. The Modules include a corequisite support workbook and a corresponding MyLab™ course. The Corequisite Support Faculty Team who created these Modules comprises four instructors with experience in creating content for developmental-level courses, and who have been challenged with implementing corequisite courses at their own institutions.
Instructors can use the Corequisite Support Workbook, the corresponding modular course in MyLab Math, or both. The Modules are an affordable option, ideal for instructors who want to pick and choose review material easily, without requiring students to purchase two full texts or courses.

The Corequisite Support Faculty Team comprises faculty who, like so many instructors around the country, were tasked with creating and implementing corequisites at their own institutions. Recognizing the need for corequisite support material that is easy to pick up and use in conjunction with a credit-level course, these instructors leveraged their own experiences with developmental students to create corequisite content accessible to a developmental-level student. Led by George Woodbury, who has authored textbooks for developmental math and statistics course areas, the Faculty Team utilizes their own experiences with corequisites and with active learning strategies to provide their best recommendations of corequisite support topics and resources that can work for any classroom.
George Woodbury is a Professor of Mathematics and Statistics at the College of the Sequoias in Central California. He has been teaching math and statistics, at all levels, for over two decades. He is the author of algebra, statistics, and math study skills texts published by Pearson. He has been using MyLab™ Math since its inception, and continually comes up with creative ways to integrate his teaching methods with technology. George has been honored as an instructor by both his students and his colleagues. Aside from teaching and writing, George served as the department chair of the math/engineering division from 1999 through 2004. He has been actively working on corequisite implementation at his institution . He is the primary author and creator of the Core Skills section of the workbooks, and the videos and exercises in MyLab Math, for all three of the Module Support courses for College Algebra/Precalculus, Statistics, and Quantitative Reasoning/Liberal Arts Math. He actively blogs on georgewoodbury.com about math, statistics, teaching, and study skills.
Perri Gellman is an Associate Professor of Mathematics at Palomar College in Southern California. Along with a team of colleagues, she piloted an activity-based pre-statistics course at Palomar College after participating in the 2012 cohort of the California Acceleration Project (CAP). During subsequent years teaching the course, she authored over 100 supplemental activities and an instructor’s guide. She facilitated a PD workshop on classroom management techniques designed to keep students engaged and accountable in an active learning environment. She is continuing to help her college foster active learning approaches for students as they begin to implement corequisite courses. She is the primary author of the Critical Thinking and Activities sections of the workbooks for the College Algebra/Precalculus and Statistics Modules.
Rob Eby is a Professor of Mathematics at Blinn College – Bryan Campus in Texas. For the past 15 years, he has taught everything Blinn offers and has been a leader in using innovative pedagogy and assignments, including writing projects, writing memos, playing games, and flipped learning. Blinn College has taken their entire mathematics department into a corequisite model at the prompting of state legislature. Rob has been helping to design the topic alignment and department standards documents and teaching pilot sections. He is the primary author of the Critical Thinking and Activities sections of the workbook for the Quantitative Reasoning/Liberal Arts Math Modules. He is a member of Cohort 2 with Project ACCESS, AMATYC, and MAA. He served two consecutive terms on the program review committee for AMATYC, and is currently on the Student Mathematics League test writing committee. He is also on the MAA Two Year College Relations Committee. When Rob is not sharing the joys of mathematics with his students, he brews his own beer and plays strategy games with his children.
Mari Menard earned bachelor’s and Master of Science degrees in mathematics from Lamar University – Beaumont, in Beaumont, TX. She is a Professor of Mathematics at Lone Star College – Kingwood, in Kingwood, Texas. Mari is the Math Lab Faculty Liaison for the Math Learning Support Lab at her campus, affording her the opportunity to work with tutors and students alike enrolled in college math courses. She is an active member of AMATYC, and is currently the AMATYC Traveling Workshop Coordinator. Her own experiences in college allowed her to find her love of mathematics and a knack for helping her fellow students. She believes that students must build and nurture their math skills (what she terms their “math ego”), stay positive, work hard, and success will follow. She works with other math faculty at her college to determine content and implementation strategies for corequisite courses and is currently teaching her second semester of corequisite courses. She believes in learning from all experiences, and enjoys time with her husband and playing golf. Mari is the primary author of the Implementation Guide to support the Corequisite Support Modules.
