Math Support through ALEKS

Every student has access to individualized

math support through ALEKS!

ALEKS is an artificially intelligent learning and assessment platform that is offered to all AFHSD math students. After quickly and accurately determining each student's precise knowledge of mathematics, ALEKS helps the student work on the topics they are ready to learn and helps them progress by individualizing content.

If your child does not have access to ALEKS, please have them work with their teacher to set up an account. Many teachers use ALEKS to assign content aligned to their course, but ALEKS can also be used to meet the students where they’re at and help push them to where they need to be.
