Neither Pearson nor MJC instructors recommend accessing MyMathLab on an iPad or any other tablet. It's better to access it on a a computer, either a desktop or a laptop.

As always, for technical support questions you should consult Pearson's customer support at the link below.

Hope this helps. Please let us know if you have anymore questions.

  1. Actually I just found a way to make the flash-based MyMathLab app work on my iPad! Yes there is a Pearson app but it only allows you to view your grades and announcements. But to actually do your homework you need a flash player, which the iPad does not seem to support. Just found a browser that you can download which will allow you view pages with flash! This one was called Puffin and here is link to a tutorial you will need to see what settings to click on the browser when opened! I just tried the free version and it does work for viewing homework problems!http://youtu.be/JZ9MxCsSwjg

  3. I was looking for other ways to do mymathlab homework on my iPad. I read that puffin (free version) was an option and it works great! I'm able to answer the questions perfectly fine.

  7. As of last week, Puffin is no longer working. MathLab rep told me it was an unsupported browser when I walked what happened. It had been working fine up until a few days ago.

  10. I downloaded Puffin. It works as far as pulling up the homeworks go, as that is unavailable in Safari. However, I am unable to input a response in the answer box as my keyboard doesn't pop.
    Has anyone had a similar problem and know how to solve it?
    Thanks
