ALEKS stands for A ssessment and Le arning in K nowledge S paces. It is an individualized, adaptive learning tool that is unlike any other online program available today. Think of it as a human tutor designed to help you learn and master math. ALEKS uses artificial intelligence to determine what you know, what you don’t know, and what you are most ready to learn . ALEKS then creates a personalized learning plan that gives you credit for what you already know and shows you what you are ready to learn. To make sure that you remember what you learn, ALEKS will sometimes check your knowledge. These Knowledge Checks are designed to help you in the long run, so take them seriously! ALEKS has been around for a long time and is a trustworthy system. Treat it well and it will treat you well. Your work in ALEKS will make up 15% of your overall grade. What is ALEKS?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
