JOPLIN, MO.--- Area college students will soon be doing their math problems online instead of from a textbook. Dr. Kerry Johnson is the head of the math department at Missouri Southern State University in Joplin. He says the students will be using a program called my Math Lab. By going online, the program will offer videos and demonstrations on how to do the problems.
"Basically, it helps a lot for students who are home at midnight trying to work their problems, how to apply the concepts they learned in class," said Dr. Kerry Johnson, MSSU Math Department Head.
Dr. Johnson says by going digital, it will help save the students money by not having to buy or rent a textbook.
