Aleks(R) Curriculum

Aleks is an AI-based website.  It learns what the student already knows, so it works with students on the topics they are ready to learn.

Each “Slice” of the Aleks “Pie” is spread across 32 Modules (one for each week of class).  Each Module is sub-divided into numerous topics.  

A student typically spends 10 minutes on each topic.  To complete the pie, students will need to work 3-4 hours per week in Aleks.
