The Power Is in the Pairing
MyMathLab for Developmental Mathematics was developed from the experience of authors Andreana Grimaldo and Denise Robichaud, who have helped all types of students (online, in-lab, and in-class) achieve success. They pair a streamlined Worktext (available separately)–where students show their work–with an interactive eText and fully loaded MyMathLab course. This new All in One offers everything needed to teach the full developmental math sequence in one flexible course solution. It provides the perfect traditional classroom, lab, or online solution for instructors who embrace the power of the pencil, and the immediate feedback and tutorial help that the technology offers.
Built in MyMathLab
MyMathLab is an online homework, tutorial, and assessment program designed to engage students and improve results. Within its structured environment, students practice what they learn, test their understanding, and pursue a personalized study plan that helps them absorb course material and understand difficult concepts.

Andreana Grimaldo grew up in New Hampshire and received her Associate’s Degree in Business from Becker College in Massachusetts. She later earned a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics and a Master of Science in Applied Mathematics from Worcester State College. Andreana has taught many levels of math from developmental through calculus, beginning as an individual instructor to at-risk and non-English-speaking students. She started teaching as an adjunct at Quinsigamond Community College in 1990 and became a full-time professor in 2003. In 2007 she was awarded the NISOD Teaching and Leadership Excellence Award. Andreana is a Boston sports fan and her hobbies include golfing, reading, learning, and family activities. Her greatest passions are her family and “figuring out ways to excite students about mathematics.”
Denise Robichaud was born and raised in Massachusetts. She received her Bachelor of Science in Physics from the University of Lowell. She then earned her Master of Science in Physics from Tufts University, where she also earned a Master of Arts in Teaching. Denise started teaching math and physics part-time in 1992, and over the following ten years taught at a variety of institutions including a private high school, as well as 2-year and 4-year colleges. She has been a full-time professor at Quinsigamond Community College since 2002, and in 2007 she was awarded the NISOD Teaching and Leadership Excellence Award. When she is not instructing students, Denise enjoys reading, playing the guitar, exercising, cheering on Boston sports teams, and spending time with family and friends.
