The new MyFitnessLab™ from Pearson has been designed and refined with a single purpose in mind: to help educators create that moment of understanding with their students. The MyFitnessLab system helps instructors maximize class time with customizable, easy-to-assign, and automatically graded assignments that motivate students to learn outside of class and arrive prepared for lecture.
With Pearson eText, your students can access the text whenever and wherever they have access to the Internet. Pearson eText pages look exactly like the printed text, and offer powerful new functionality for students and instructors. Users can create notes, highlight text in different colors, create bookmarks, zoom, click on hyperlinked words and phrases to view definitions, and view in single-page or two-page view. Provided by various news sources, the new RSS feeds give students easy, online access to hot health topics such as the swine flu, flavored cigarettes, carb diets, etc., which are updated daily. New media icons (See It! Do It!, etc.) link directly to supporting material in the Companion Website, including videos, assessments, online labs, and additional web content.
Our current and modern collection of over 80 exercise videos demonstrates strength training and flexibility exercises with resistance bands, stability balls, free weights, and gym machines. The exercise videos are also available for download onto iPods or media players. Over 30 ABC News video clips also bring fitness & wellness topics to life.
New Audio/Visual Student Reviews pertaining to each chapter’s content support classroom lectures and enhance self-study options. In addition, short audio case studies challenge students to make conclusions about what he or she has just heard, helping students see the relevance to their own lives. All are available for download as MP4 or MP3 files.
More than 55 labs are available online to students, allowing them to assess their levels of fitness and wellness, learn core skills, and develop behavior change plans to track their progress. Students can easily complete the labs and email them to you directly–eliminating the need for paper entirely.
