Textbook and Required Material: College Algebra, Custom 2nd Edition by Julie Miller, McGraw-Hill Publishing.

Textbook is available only at Collin College bookstores. At the Collin College bookstore, the package ISBN 13: 9781259986017 contains the textbook, Connect Math and Aleks access codes. A Connect Math account is required for online homework.

The course code for our course in Connect Math is JJW4H-3FQHH

ALEKS Prep is a review of the foundations for College Algebra. Going through this module early in the semester will increase your chance of success in College Algebra. ALEKS is a web-based, artificially intelligent assessment and learning system. ALEKS uses adaptive questioning to quickly and accurately determine exactly what you know and dont know, and then provides instruction on the topics you are most ready to learn. When you use ALEKS, you complete only the learning tasks that you need and not those somebody else needs. Students who show a high level of mastery in ALEKS will gain the foundation needed to be successful in the overall course. Access to ALEKS Prep is free to all Collin College students enrolled in College Algebra. To access ALEKS Prep, go to the website www.aleks.com and register using the course code: H4MYC 4U6DG

After accessing the program, you will be asked to complete an initial assessment. Take your time through the assessment! Complete the initial assessment carefully and honestly and try to avoid answering I dont knowas that will lower your grade on the assessment. The results will allow you to determine which areas of the prerequisite material need additional work.
