**Kirk Trigsted, Kevin Bodden, **and** Randy Gallaher** revolutionized developmental math when they created **Beginning and ****Intermediate Algebra**, a completely clickable eText written from the ground up within MyMathLab^{®}. Recognizing that today’s students have a tendency to jump straight to the homework instead of reading the text, Kirk Trigsted created an online learning environment that is a seamless mix of exposition, videos, interactive animations, tutorials, and assessment. This approach leverages the power of MyMathLab and leads students to interact with course materials and learn in a new way, which is proving to be more effective.
