Given the importance of mathematics in the curriculum of all thr= ee degrees offered by the department, we ask that all incoming students rev= iew key algebraic and geometric principles.Given the importance of mathemat= ics in the curriculum of all three degrees offered by the department, we as= k that all incoming students review key algebraic and geometric principles.=

Students must demonstrate proficiency in these concepts prior to the fal= l term to register for our core courses in economics and statistics.

Our goal is to improve your understanding of course content and performa= nce. We are confident that these resources will ensure success for all.

The department has two methods by which students can demonstrate this pr= oficiency.

- The submission of a Graduate Record Examination (GRE) score of 158 or h= igher (or its equivalent) on the Quantitative section of the GRE (GRE-Q) as= part of an admissions application;
- The completion of all ALEKS course modules by July 1, 2022

The ALEKS course starts with a diagnostic test, determining what topics = you need to review. ALEKS then creates a personalized mini-course to work t= hrough over the summer. For each topic, it offers instructions, practice pr= oblems, and worksheets.

The ALEKS course covers the following algebraic and geometric principles= :

- Real Numbers (e.g. fractions, decimals, exponents and integers, order o= f operations, absolute value);
- Equations and Inequalities (e.g. solving two-step equations, solving li= near equations and inequalities);
- Exponents and Polynomials (e.g. evaluating expressions with exponents, = scientific notation);
- Lines and System (e.g. plotting in the coordinate plane, graphic and li= ne, writing the equation of a line);
- Function and Graphs (e.g. finding inputs and outputs of a function from= its graph, graphing a parabola);
- Radical Expressions (e.g. square root functions, rational exponents);
- Geometry (e.g. area of a square, area of a triangle).

How do I access ALEKS:

Students can access the ALEKS course at the ALEKS website, using the ten= -character class code of VJKED-D49WJ. This provides six weeks of acce= ss to the =E2=80=9CMaxwell PAIA Math Refresher 2022=E2=80=9D for $26.25.

As the core courses will reacquaint you with topics you have not used fo= r several years, or were not exposed to in the past, we encourage everyone = to review these skills through the ALEKS course.

Trust us, the time, money, and effort you put into this preparation will= pay off when you being the program this fall.
