Interesting ALEKS strategy…

Posted on October 31, 2013


   I’ve noted that students recognize that ALEKS has a palette of problem types, and if you get one wrong, it simply gives you exactly the same words with different numbers.   One of my students does the n-problem assignment…painstakingly going through the working example and placing her numbers in the spots they belong.   If she misses one,  she just erases the numbers and plops the new ones in (so all those fraction bars and equals sign decorations are already there and don’t have to be copied).   Most common error:   forgetting to update a number.   Comprehension of the process?    Welp, that’s another story.
