Lab Solutions that meet you where you are.
Macmillan Learning Lab Solutions provides instructors and students with all the high-quality lab material needed to have engaging, hands-on lab experiences.
Teaching a hybrid course? No worries; our Lab Solutions are equipped to support students in class and remotely. Students can access virtual labs through our lab simulations, complete assessments outside of class, conduct in-person lab experiments, and more.
Our Lab Solutions support fully remote lab courses with all the benefits of in-person labs. Our digital solutions, such as lab simulations, interactives, virtual resources, and Achieve Labs, make it possible for students to conduct realistic experiments and assignments from the comfort of their homes.
Ready-to-use Lab Topics
Our ready-made lab solutions make it easy for you to get a jump start in your lab course. You can use our prebuilt Lab Solutions as they come, or use them as a starting base and modify them as your needs change. You always have the option to pick and choose the content you need for your course.
Ready-to-use Lab Features
Assignments and Assessments
Prepare students for class with prelab assignments to familiarize them with lab concepts, instructions, and expectations. Assigning prework simulations and videos can cut down on prep time and allow students to fully focus on the labs in class.
Take advantage of our assessments to administer quizzes and tests and help students practice course concepts. Throughout your course, reporting and analytics from your assessments will help you identify student strengths as well as gaps in learning.

Data-driven Smart Worksheets
Our Smart Worksheets guide students through data entry for their labs with adaptive hints, real-time checks, and interactive graphing. These auto graded assignments help students improve their data analysis skills, and they save you time manually reviewing lab reports so students get timely and consistent grading, leading to higher success rates.
The foundation for every lab course is the lab manual. Save time and resources with our ready-made lab manuals – available in digital, print, or both. Choose from hundreds of pre-written labs that pair perfectly with our other lab resources!
Digital lab manuals have notetaking and highlighting capabilities so students can annotate, as needed. Students can also download their lab manual for offline reading.
Over 100 lab simulations are available to support students who are remote or miss labs. Lab simulations give students access to an engaging, interactive virtual lab regardless of location and can offer prework simulations to prepare students for in-person labs.
Student Engagement with iClicker
For most Achieve courses, the iClicker student engagement system is included at no added expense, enabling mobile and laptop interactive quizzing and polling capabilities for in-person or remote classes, along with automatically generated study tools.
Student Lab Notebook
Our lab notebooks are available in print for your General Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, and General Science lab courses in 50 or 100 carbonless sets. Each notebook contains notebook directions, discipline-specific reference materials, and a customizable table of contents.
Our print lab notebooks offer the highest quality and durability, with full lamination on the front and back cover to protect against lab spills. Our coil spiral binding allows notebooks to lay flat and contains our unique carbonless pages.
Lab solutions that offer convenience to instructors without compromising on quality.
Whether you are adopting a prebuilt lab solution or electing to use customization services (formerly Hayden-McNeil Lab Solutions), Macmillan Learning Lab Solutions engage all lab students to better understand scientific concepts.
