McGraw-Hill Education Announces Interactive E-books with ALEKS 360

Mar 11, 2010

McGraw-Hill Education has introduced ALEKS 360, a mathematics solution that combines an artificial intelligence and personalized learning program with a fully integrated, interactive e-book package.
ALEKS 360 delivers assessments of students' math knowledge, guiding them in the selection of appropriate new study material, and recording their progress toward mastery of course goals. Through adaptive questioning, ALEKS accurately assesses a student's knowledge state and delivers targeted instruction on the exact topics a student is most ready to learn.

The e-books featured within ALEKS 360 are interactive versions of their physical counterparts, which offer virtual features such as highlighting and note-taking capabilities, as well as access to multimedia assets such as images, video, and homework exercises. E-books are accessible from ALEKS Student Accounts and the ALEKS Instructor Module for convenient, direct access.

The initial e-books to be offered in ALEKS 360 include: Introductory Algebra, Second Edition, by Julie Miller and Molly O'Neill; Intermediate Algebra, Second Edition, by Miller and O'Neill; College Precalculus, Second Edition, by John W. Coburn; and College Algebra, Second Edition, by Coburn.
