Mathhelp was so helpful to me in passing my ALEKS test and my two other math classes. I am now a college graduate! The instructors were both knowledgeable and patient and the lessons were easy to follow. I could test myself over and over till I understood a problem. As a “non-math person,” whose last math class was over 35 years ago, I would never have made it without Mathhelp. It was worth every penny and then some. I. Will always be grateful. Keep of the great work.

My ALEKS test went well when I used MathHelp! The most helpful tool to use was the review at every section and especially the final exam feature at the end. I loved having practice taking math tests again. It had been a long time! I loved how if I had a problem understanding any topic, I could use the links provided to go back and understand the background for each step. (For me, this applied to a lot of the exponential expressions and geometry stuff). I can't thank you enough for your program! It was great and I feel so much more confident about my success in my math classes coming up!

I’m a huge fan!Both the Accuplacer and ALEKS courses were spot.I set a goal to see if I could cram learn and test into precalculus/ trigonometry inside of just two weeks - and I did it!I sincerely could barely do the foil method and I didn’t even know how to do long division and because of the course, and particularly Matt’s clarity in the lessons, I now play with functions for fun. :)Super grateful.

I found the course great! I have been out of school for a while so it was a great refresher before re attending uni. The skills I gained from this course definitely improved what my ALEKS score would have been. I found the tests at the end of each section the most helpful. But I also loved the short video format.

Mathhelp was very helpful. I never went past Algebra 1 in High School, and then 7 years later I needed to place into precalculus to pursue my first college degree. I studied through all of the ALEKS Mathhelp lessons, and then I got a 64 on the test, placing into the math class I needed to be in.Thank you so much for all the help.

This is a great program that is very straightforward and helpful. I struggle with math and need a higher placement score on the ALEKS test to finish my Bachelor's degree. I studied with the MathHelp step by step plan for a month and did well enough that I placed into my class! Thanks MathHelp!

The ALEKS prep was very helpful. I was able to test into a much higher math class than I'd expected. I loved the pace of the videos and that there were practice test throughout and at the end of each section. It helped me to figure out where I needed more studying. The whole course is really well organized at thought out. I most definitely recommend!

The ALEKS test actually went really well! I got a 76, which placed me into the best section I could have. I think that the website itself was very organized in finding all the elements, and I also think that the condensed/ shorter videos combined with the examples were most helpful.

I'm a returning college student who hasn't taken a math class in nearly 5 years. I felt like I needed somewhere I could build on my fundamentals, so I turned to MathHelp. I started with the first ALEKS lesson on MathHelp, watching all the videos, and taking every test until I could pass with a 100% all the way up to the end of exponential and logarithmic equations, which was lesson 179. Overall, I'm very satisfied with my time using MathHelp. Topics I remember as being complicated, like logarithms, were actually very easy to understand thanks to the short video format of the lessons. Recently I took the ALEKS placement assessment and scored well enough to place into pre calculus. I’m impressed I was able to do that well, going from barely remembering the fundamentals of algebra to nearly placing into calculus.

I was attempting to place into calculus I and I did achieve that. I scored an 85 on the ALEKS. I was a very poor student in high school just so you understand the full picture. I'm trying to catch up on things I should have had a basic foundation in back then. So it was really nice to have a refresher course on all the rules and properties of math and algebra leading up to the calculus portions. Overall, I think the material was very well put together on your site. Clear and concise.

What is University of Illinois at Chicago known for?

The University of Illinois at Chicago’s 244 acre campus sits in the heart of the Windy City.  Its west side is occupied by the Illinois Medical District, while the east and south sides of the campus include nine of the school’s 15 colleges.  Having received accreditation from the Higher Learning Commission, the university provides over 31,000 students with certificates and programs ranging from Bachelor’s to Doctoral degrees.  The university has several regional campuses.  The Springfield and Urbana campuses offer Nursing programs, while the Rockford campus additionally offers Medicine and Pharmacy.

Students entering the university have an average GPA of 3.29, with standardized test scores in the range of 1150-1390 for the SAT and 20-26 for the ACT.  In the absence of an acceptable exemption, international students will need to provide scores from the TOEFL (IB or PB), the Pearson Test of English (PTE) Academic, or the IELTS Academic.  For a competitive application, students should have 3 years of science and 3 to 4 years of math coursework that includes algebra, geometry, and advanced algebra/trigonometry.  Stem majors should have 4 years of science and 4 years of math with at least a course in precalculus.  Regardless of standardized tests and AP, IB, or CLEP credit, incoming first year students and the majority of transfer students will take a foreign language placement exam and the ALEKS math placement test. 

The university offers a wide range of nursing certificate and degree programs, most of which have specific admissions requirements.  The School Nurse Certificate program, for example, requires a 2.75 GPA in the last 60 hours of the completed BSN degree and a license; candidates intending to obtain an Illinois State Board of Education Educators License in School Nursing must also have passing scores on the SAT, the ACT Plus Writing, or the ISBE Test of Academic Proficiency (TAP), a test administered by the ILTS (Illinois Licensure Testing System).  The Advanced Generalist Master of Science program requires a valid RN license; however, students may apply before they have passed the NCLEX (National Council Licensure Exam).  If the GPA for the most recent degree earned is below 3.25, however, they will have to submit GRE scores.  The university also offers a number of degree programs in Education.  Earning a BA in Urban Education offers students the opportunity to obtain Illinois teacher licensure, and then, through reciprocity agreements, they are qualified to teach in 46 states.  If they have successfully participated in the university’s GPPA (Guaranteed Professional Program Admissions) program, they may also be guaranteed admissions to several MEd programs.
