The summer assignment in ALEKS will help prepare you for your study in general chemistry.


ALEKS (Assessment and LEarning in Knowledge Spaces), is an instruction tool based on artificial intelligence.  ALEKS is unique in that it tailors its approach to the needs of each student in the class. ALEKS will rarely force you to “learn” material you already know nor will it try to teach you things for which your foundational skills make you unlikely to succeed. Further, you will periodically have your mastery of the material assessed by ALEKS – ensuring that you are retaining the concepts you have learned.  The biggest advantage of the ALEKS approach is that it is completely individualized. You’ll be reviewing only those topics in which you yourself need help and you won’t be wasting time on topics you’ve already fully mastered.
