Welcome to ALEKS, one of the most powerful educational tools available
for learning mathematics.
ALEKS combines advanced learning technology with the
flexibility of the Internet, and provides an interactive
tutoring system with unmatched features and capabilities.
ALEKS was developed with support from the National Science Foundation.
It is based on a field of Mathematical Cognitive Science called
"Knowledge Spaces," which models human knowledge for precise assessment
and efficient learning in interactive computer programs.
NOTE. In this booklet, "you" refers to the student user of ALEKS.
With younger children, of course, it is likely that the child's parent
or tutor will be the actual reader and will be assisting the child with
use of ALEKS.
Based on your assessment results, ALEKS will understand what you know,
what you don't know, and most importantly, what you are ready to learn.
ALEKS provides individualized, one-on-one instruction that fits your
exact knowledge state and helps you select the ideal topics to work
on next. That way you will learn concepts in the order that's best
for you. As you learn, ALEKS constantly challenges you and supplies
extensive feedback on what you have accomplished.
Since ALEKS is available on
the Internet, it fits any busy schedule. To get started immediately, you may refer to the Quick
Start Instructions below. More detail is provided in the subsequent
ALEKS includes online instructions and feedback and
is designed for use without help from a manual. If you need additional
information, refer to this booklet or contact ALEKS Customer Support.
NOTE. Two or more students cannot use the same ALEKS account.
