Math Refreshers: ALEKS


Students at Temple who want a math refresher can access either of the online math learning programs.


ALEKS is an educational software system that is offered through McGraw Hill.  (The name stands Assessment and LEarning in Knowledge Spaces.) 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 she is most ready to learn. As a student works through a course, ALEKS periodically reassesses the student to ensure that topics learned are also retained. ALEKS courses are very complete in their topic coverage and ALEKS avoids multiple-choice questions.A student who shows a high level of mastery of an ALEKS course will be successful in the actual course she is taking. ALEKS covers Pre-Algebra through Precalculus.
