The course strongly builds on material from College Algebra. Further practice of these skills is developed via an online tutoring program: ALEKS, which is MANDATORY for all students. You are given an Initial Assessment to determine your strengths and weaknesses. The program uses artificial intelligence to provide tutoring solely in those topics needed in its Learning Mode.

The course is divided into several "Intermediate Objectives" with the early ones covering a review of material necessary for the class.

You need to begin work as soon as possible to ensure that the review material is learned in the first couple of weeks to give you the necessary skills for the class.

For most students an average of 4 hours per week spent on ALEKS should be adequate, although more time will probably be needed if your Initial Assessment is poor, or if you have a lot of topics to complete in order to meet an intermediate objective.
