The Math Emporium is a new adaptive learning model that takes math out of the traditional classroom and into a high-tech learning environment. The emporium uses ALEKS (For a screen reader friendly version of the ALEKS exam, contact Disability Support Services), a web-based assessment tool, to gauge students’ math knowledge and identify gaps. ALEKS then builds an individualized plan of study with weekly targets to help students master concepts outlined in the course objectives. Students are continuously evaluated throughout this process and can work at their own pace.
The Math Emporium is housed in the Learning Resources Center in Sally Monserud Hall. While there, students can also take advantage of other tutoring and support services offered by the center such as math testing and the Math Lab.
