ALEKS PPL placement assessments cover material ranging from properties of numbers up through trigonometry.

You may encounter some topics that you haven’t seen before—that’s OK! These are assessments to determine what you *do* know, not exams to test you on material that you're expected to know.

##### Real numbers

fractions, integers, and percentages

##### Equations and inequalities

linear equations, linear inequalities, systems of linear equations, and quadratic equations

##### Linear and quadratic functions

graphs and functions, linear functions, and parabolas

##### Exponents and polynomials

integer exponents, polynomial arithmetic, factoring, and polynomial equations

##### Rational and radical expressions

rational equations and functions, higher roots, and rational exponents

##### Geometry

perimeter, area, volume, and coordinate geometry

##### Exponentials and logarithms

function compositions and inverses, logarithmic identities and equations

##### Trigonometry

trigonometric functions, identities, and equations
