Introducing the new Academic Systems Algebra, a cutting-edge mathematics solution from PLATO Learning

Abstract PLATO Learning is proud to introduce the new Academic Systems Algebra!  This solution was designed for students entering college under-prepared for college-level math courses, providing comprehensive, self-paced instruction that actively engages college students in learning and applying mathematics.  AS Algebra leverages state-of-the-art technology to deliver top-quality math instruction in an interactive, engaging environment that addresses multiple learning styles and eases math phobia, allowing students to advance to credit courses more quickly while increasing overall pass rates, retention, and persistence.  And it provides consistent instruction by faculty and adjuncts alike, while allowing for on-campus, distance learning, or hybrid programs to accommodate your institution’s needs.  I hope you will join me for a look at this exciting new program from PLATO Learning!
