ALEKS

Last year’s Crew had opportunity to review ALEKS, a web-based math program.  You can read their reviews here.

If you have never heard of ALEKS, I’d encourage you to check out their website. There is something there for everyone – from teachers/parents to students (of all ages).  ALEKS has programming available for all ages, from kindergarten, right on up to the highest mathematical levels in high school.  Here is some information specific to homeschool families (taken directly from the ALEKS website):

ALEKS (Assessment and LEarning in Knowledge Spaces) can provide you with the instruction and support you need to homeschool your children in mathematics for grades 3-12.  ALEKS is accessible from virtually any computer with Internet access, making it a flexible and mobile educational solution for your children. 

ALEKS is a Research-Based Online Math Program:

  • Complete Curriculum Solution for Math with Access to Full Course Library
  • No Textbook Required
  • Artificial Intelligence Targets Gaps in Student Knowledge
  • Assessment and Individualized Learning for Grades 3-12
  • Master Account Includes Quizzing and Automated Reports to Monitor Learning Progress
  • Unlimited Online Access – PC & Mac Compatible

This year’s new Crew members will be reviewing the ALEKS program.  Members from last year’s Crew, who previously reviewed ALEKS, will be reviewing the new Master Account.  I’m sure you will find all of the reviews both interesting and helpful.  In the meantime, check out the FREE TRIAL of ALEKS.

  1. My review went longer than expected too. But there is alot to cover in this program! I had looked at this briefly a year ago and did not realize then what I was looking at. I do now.

  2. Mine too went long, I don't know how you could do it short! Thought it was great that there is a month long trial for other homeschoolers. It can be a spendy purchase so it's nice to test drive first.

  3. This is a great Math program for children who hate Math textbooks.

    I just posted my review of it on Leaders in Learning Blogspot.

    Check it out.

  4. I was very pleased with this program. Just as I said in my review, I was completely surprised that my child who really dislikes math really did like this program! We may have to subscribe when our free trial is over (in order to prevent a rebellion!)

  5. Forgot to comment on this one too. Looking forward to using ALEKS for 8th grade math this year. Like what we see so far!

  6. I'm having a yard sale to pay for at least a 6-month subscription. Although I've already purchased and planned Math for this year, Aleks has changed those plans! It's really a great product.

  7. I used Aleks in college and I just have to say that there aren’t enough words in the english language to discribe how much I hate that program. It never gave me a clear enough explaination or pointed out which problems I had right or wrong, it was an “all or nothing” system. I would honestly get so fustrated with it, all I could do was sit and cry.
