Online Course Offerings

The Distance Learning mathematics courses all use the MyMathLab computer learning system. All work (homework, quizzes, and tests) are done in the MyMathLab system. The textbook and the MyMathLab tutorials and other resources are available to help the students to learn the material and each class is proctored by a mathematics teacher who can give assistance as needed. Only students in residential MATH 100, 110, 115, 116, 121, 201 and BUSI 230 courses may use the Math Emporium.

MATH 100, 110, 115, 116, 121, 201 and BUSI 230 are currently offered through Liberty University Online. Residential students may not take MATH 100 or MATH 110 online.
