Ensure not to share them even unintentionally. 2. Kent State University Core Math eBooks These eBooks have been used in the past for Core Math courses (1002124). Core courses were replaced by the current Basic Algebra courses (0002024) but the content is very similar. The eBooks can be downloaded and used to review the material. They are free to KSU students. 3.

What
is a reference sheet? Reference sheet contains formulas and definitions
that help you summarize what you learned.
It is created by you as you learn. Here is an example of a reference sheet created by the student who put all formulas and
problem types on this sheet and reviewed it before the exam. Complete
and accurate math writing is important so that you can check your work and
someone else can read and understand what you mean. Here is an example
of accurate and complete student writing. Pay close attention to how
solutions in ALEKS are presented and how your instructor writes – those are resources for
accurate and complete math writing.
You need to mimic that writing. 

Academic Success Center offers: ·
WalkIn tutoring around the clock. It is
intended for students with all knowledge levels so even if you do not
struggle but want to progress faster consider walkin tutoring. Bring the
laptop to work in ALEKS with the tutor. If you do not have your own
laptop, you can check out one in the bookstore or in the library. ·
