ALEKS Mathematics Bridge is an independent study opportunity for students who want to advance their placement level. ALEKS is a completely online, artificially intelligent, assessment, and learning system adopted by UNE to assist you in mastering the material you will need for success in college-level mathematics and science courses. ALEKS is adaptive to each individual and quickly determines what you know and doesn’t know within the context of the selected modules. ALEKS offers an individualized learning plan, practice, help, and immediate feedback from virtually any computer with Internet access.
If you have a UL2 or UL3 (SAS021 or SAS022) mathematics placement you may complete this coursework prior to the start of classes in your first semester at UNE. SAS 021 and SAS 022 are required prerequisite courses for many college-level math and science courses. Eligible students are invited to participate based on mathematics placement. If you have a UL4 placement and your major requires UL5 calculus you may also elect to complete the ALEKS bridge for precalculus.
If you complete at least 90% of the required ALEKS modules you are eligible to advance your mathematics placement level and enroll in your next required math and/or science courses saving time and money. You should expect to spend 20 to 40 hours on ALEKS but this number will vary depending on your current mathematical knowledge.
If you elect not to participate in Bridge or if you do not complete 90% of the required modules, you will be enrolled in a traditional classroom section of the required math course for your placement level in the fall semester and advance to your next level of math upon successful completion of that course.
If you are interested in enrolling in the UNE bridge opportunity, email Lori Wall at firstname.lastname@example.org for a course code. A six-week access code costs less than $50. There are no university fees associated with this program.
