ALEKS Information-for General Chemistry 1210 and 1220

(back to top)

Using ALEKS DURING your General Chemistry course--Gen CHEM 1 (1210) or Gen CHEM 2 (1220)

Purchase Information for the required use of ALEKS is included below.

See also "Using ALEKS BEFORE the Gen Chem 1 course"--

What is ALEKS and why is it being used during Chem 1210 and during Chem 1220? 

To increase your chances of success in Chem 1210 and 1220 we are using ALEKS as a required component to rapidly and accurately identify your strengths or weaknesses and help you build your knowledge. ALEKS will be with you to help you learn the Chem 1210 & 1220 material as we move forward (at least 10 percent of your total grade will be calculated based on your performance in this system).

ALEKS is a powerful artificial-intelligence based teaching tool.  ALEKS first assesses what you know and don’t know, and reports the results of this assessment to you and your instructors. Once ALEKS determines what you have remembered and what you have forgotten (or never learned before) about the course content, it will teach you only those things meeting the following criteria:
A) You don't already know how to do an item (though these can be reviewed at any time in ALEKS by clicking the tab labeled “Review”)
B) You are ready to learn it, based on what you already know.

ALEKS will rarely force you to "learn" material you already know, nor will it try to teach you things for which your foundational skills make you unlikely to succeed.

Purchase an ALEKS access code.

Online by credit card

Purchase a 1 semester license ($40.00) to just cover Chem 1210 or Chem 1220 OR purchase a 1 year license (~$70 to cover both 1210 and 1220). Only some sections of General Chemistry at the Columbus campus use ALEKS, so if you plan to transition campuses, buy only a 1 semester access code.

Locally at the campus bookstore

Shrink-wrapped 1 semester access codes may be purchased on campus. The bookstore price will be higher than direct online price. You will need to PREORDER a shrinkwrapped code directly from the bookstore!!

Getting an Access Code Online

Go to www.aleks.com If you do not alrready have an ALEKS account, click on “New User, Sign Up Now” OR sign into your existing account and select "Sign up for a new class"

If you purchased an access code at the bookstore, you will simply enter that. Otherwise, you will be directed to purchase an access code (credit card required).

The access code is a 20 character alpha-numeric string.  Please enter this access code when prompted and continue following the instructions to complete the registration process.

You will ALSO be asked to provide the course identity code.  You can get the course code for your class from kinder.9@osu.edu or from the course Carmen site.
https://carmen.osu.edu

 

Waiting for Financial Aid?

Contact Ruth Kinder (kinder.9@osu.edu) for more information about a temporary two week license to use while waiting for finanacial aid to clear.

More information about using ALEKS during the course will be provided at your first class session AND will be available in the course Carmen area as soon as it opens.

If you have questions before classes begin, contact Ruth Kinder using kinder.9@osu.edu or Dr. Ewan Hamilton using hamilton.40@osu.edu.

What happens next?
ALEKS will teach you a bit about the available tools and then you will be asked to do an initial assessment.  The initial assessment may take as little as 20 minutes or as long as 90 minutes.  Most take about 45-60 minutes.  You MAY stop at any point and ALEKS will save your work and let you begin again later where you left off.  Do not continue working in ALEKS when you are too tired or too distracted to perform well. Once you have completed your initial assessment, ALEKS will open topics for you to work on.  You may work on any topics that are selected as available for you.
Initial Assessment
Do the initial assessment carefully and honestly! It is the way ALEKS finds out about YOU, what you already know, and what you are therefore ready to learn. If you do this assessment carelessly or answer randomly, you’ll waste time later because ALEKS will force you to work through material you already know and don’t really need to review.   On the other hand, there is no advantage to consulting outside resources - such as a textbook or a friend - to improve your assessment score.  Then, the assessment will just take you much longer and when you enter the learning mode ALEKS will try to teach you things you are not really ready to learn.  The occasional progress assessments will discover this, and you’ll spend even more time in learning than is necessary.  IT IS A WASTE OF TIME to play games with the ALEKS assessments.  Always read and follow the instructions very carefully. 

NEVER! EVER!  Click the “I don't know” button during any ALEKS assessment unless you really don't have any idea of how to do the problem.  Otherwise, ALEKS may think you don't know a bunch of things you actually do know and take you way back and make you "learn" them.
The initial assessment might take close to an hour.  The strongest students will get more difficult questions (the test adapts to you), and may take as long as an hour and a half.  (But these students will spend much less time in the learning mode!).
Once the initial assessment has determined what you remember, you will enter a learning mode where you can work to add to your knowledge. As you work in the learning mode you will take occasional progress assessments to confirm retention of previous material. You can expect a progress assessment to trigger whenever your instructors have decided it is a good point for you to be asked to recall what you have been learning.  A lot of learning actually takes place based on “forgetting” and the “remembering” so try to believe in the value of these of these periodic assessments to your overall learning process.  This is mastery based learning and it WILL feel different than “digest-regurgitate-forget” style learning.
Everyone will have a different assessment profile and need to focus on different topics and skills.  When you use ALEKS, you complete the learning tasks you need and not those somebody else needs.  ALEKS provides one-on-one instruction tailored specifically to you, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, from virtually any computer with access to the web. 

A great opportunity! ALEKS Pre-Semester ("Summer") Prep for General and Engineering Chemistry

 

FULL Preparation and Review for CHEM 1210 or 1250:

Optional, but STRONGLY RECOMMENDED, ALEKS  prep opens during the summer and winter breaks for you to use for skill review and pre-course preparation. We recommend this review and prep be completed over several weeks and as rigorously as possible BEFORE the term starts.  Students with sufficient background in math and chemistry will find many of the prep topics familiar, while students with weaker backgrounds may find a number of topics to be new to them. However, all students will benefit from this opportunity to refresh and enhance their incoming knowledge.  This is a purchased program for up 11 weeks access @ $30...go to www.aleks.com, click on “New User, Sign Up Now” and enter the *course code* in the boxes provided.

The full prep and review option course code for CHEM 1210 and 1250 for 2014-2015 is YRULT-PGKYD

Brief Review for CHEM 1210 or 1220:

Another review option once you have enrolled in CHEM 1210 or 1220... enter the required 'during the term' ALEKS course a few weeks before the term begins and begin working on the basic topics. A course code will be sent to you through OSU email a few weeks before the start of the term.

If you have questions before classes begin, contact Ruth Kinder using kinder.9@osu.edu or Dr. Ewan Hamilton using hamilton.40@osu.edu.
