Overall Experience:

My son loves ALEKS. We've only used it for a brief time, but he is completing math without complaining, and he truly understands it!

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

Prior to using ALEKS, math was just too hard to understand, and my son couldn't retain the information.

What were you looking for in an online math tool?

We were looking for something different than the traditional textbook approach because it wasn't working for us.

What math progress has the student experienced since using ALEKS?

I'm happy with my son's desire to complete his math.

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

He feels good and confident in his math studies, and doesn't feel as though it is too hard for him any longer.
