The ALEKS learning module for first-year engineering students

The Faculty of Engineering has put into place a math preparation course known as ALEKS (Assessment and Learning in Knowledge Spaces) Placement, Preparation and Learning (ALEKS PPL) to help prepare students for academic success. In the past, weak mathematical abilities and missing background topics have been identified as a cause for poor academic performance. Possible missing background topics are even more relevant in 2020, given that many incoming students have had their final year of studies interrupted by the pandemic. This year we are providing students with ALEKS PPL to assess their personal level of math preparation and enable them to easily fill in any missing background.
