ALEKS Lab and Algebra Review

[CLOs: 1, 2, 4]

Access the ALEKS site here. Selecting this link will open the ALEKS window that allows you to access the ALEKS functionality. In addition, you may want to disable any pop-up blockers for this site.

For the Week One Math Lab, click on the ALEKS tab on the left navigation toolbar, in your online course. Review the tutorial on how to use ALEKS for your lab. Work in the Week One module by selecting topics from your “pie.”

Please Note: You may be prompted throughout the weeks to take diagnostic assessments. It is very important that you take these seriously and follow directions, as it will customize your weekly “pies.”

This activity is worth eight points toward your weekly total, and your progress will be graded according to the percent of the module you complete. For example, if your ALEKS pie shows that you have accomplished 75% of the Week One slice, then you earned 75% of 8 points, or .75 x 8 = 6 points for your ALEKS progress score in Week One. These grades will be automatically imported into the Gradebook at 11:59 PM Mountain Time on Monday evening.

It is very important that you work through every concept in each pie slice. Be sure to work from pie slice 1 to pie slice 5 in numerical order. If you fail to complete the Week One pie slice, you will not be able to complete all the concepts in Week Two. If you do not complete the topics in Weeks One and Two, you will not be able to complete all the topics in Week Three, etc. Do not skip topics. In order to unlock all the concepts in later weeks, you must complete all math problems in the previous weeks. Be sure to use your textbook while using ALEKS for useful explanations of the problems.
