Connect Math Hosted by ALEKS is an online assignment and assessment platform that helps students connect to their coursework and prepares them to succeed. An integrated ALEKS Initial Assessment helps you understand what your students know and are ready to learn next. This system is built by educators for educators. Content is produced and vetted by our market leading authors to ensure a single voice with your textbook. Built in a highly intuitive platform, course creation is simplified, saving you time while vastly improving student performance.
Assessment and LEarning in Knowledge Spaces is a web-based, artificially intelligent assessment and learning system. ALEKS uses adaptive questioning to quickly and accurately determine exactly what a student knows and doesn't know in a course. ALEKS then instructs the student on the topics she is most ready to learn. As a student works through a course, ALEKS periodically reassesses the student to ensure that topics learned are also retained. ALEKS courses are very complete in their topic coverage and ALEKS avoids multiple-choice questions. A student who shows a high level of mastery of an ALEKS course will be successful in the actual course she is taking.

My father is a medical researcher, and I got hooked on math and science when I was young and would visit his laboratory. I can remember using graph paper to plot data points for his experiments and doing simple calculations. He would then tell me what the peaks and features in the graph meant in the context of his experiment. I think that applications and hands-on experience made math come alive for me and I’d like to see math come alive for my students.
