Basic Algebra Sequence (ALEKS)
ALEKS Software Information and links
Assessment and LEarning in Knowledge Spaces (ALEKS) is a Web-based, artificially intelligent assessment and learning system. ALEKS uses adaptive questioning to quickly and accurately determine exactly what a student knows and doesn't know in a course. ALEKS then instructs the student on the topics they are most ready to learn. As a student works through a course, ALEKS periodically reassesses the student to ensure that topics are also retained.
The Basic Algebra courses will be taught using the software ALEKS. It is possible for students to accelerate through the Basic Algebra sequence by completing the courses early and then following the change of section process. This process starts with printing the Math Emporium Course Section Change Form (See below) and going to see your current Basic Algebra instructor. Have the instructor fill out the top of the form and bring the signed form to the Math Department located in MSB 233.
Academic Advisors will be working with students to place them in the correct Basic Algebra course. Below are some useful links that you may find helpful.
