Overall Experience:

ALEKS has been a great program for my children over the summer. They love working at their own pace, and watching their pie to see how much they have accomplished.

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

My kids didn't have any major challenges; my son loves math and I needed to prepare my daughter for an advanced math course.

What were you looking for in an online math tool?

We were looking for a fun and engaging program that wouldn't require me to sit over the kids and assist them.

What math progress has the student experienced since using ALEKS?

ALEKS helped my daughter prepare for a new advanced math course effectively, while also encouraging my son's love for math. He really enjoyed seeing his progress.

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

Both of my children are excited about their progress with ALEKS, especially my son. He has a great love of math and it has only increased with ALEKS.
