Overall Experience:

We have had a wonderful experience! My son has really improved in his multiplication skills. He is also doing so much better working on his own.

What challenges did the student face in math prior to using ALEKS?

My son was often bored with other curriculum. He also had some kind of mental block about multiplication tables.

What were you looking for in an online math tool?

An overall program that alleviated the boredom of standard curriculum.

What math progress has the student experienced since using ALEKS?

My son is experiencing steady progress.

How does the student feel about his/her progress in ALEKS?

QuickTables has made the greatest difference! Fourth grade math is so dependent upon knowing these facts. The struggles we had are gone, and my son feels good about filling in his pie.
