The book describes up-to-date applications and relevant theoretical results. These applications come from various places, but the most important one, numerically speaking, is the internet based educational system ALEKS. The ALEKS system is bilingual English-Spanish and covers all of mathematics, from third grade to the end of high school, and chemistry. It is also widely used in higher education because US students are often poorly prepared when they reach the university level. The chapter by Taagepera and Arasasingham deals with the application of knowledge spaces, independent of ALEKS, to the teaching of college chemistry. The four chapters by Albert and his collaborators strive to give cognitive interpretations to the combinatoric structures obtained and used by the ALEKS system. The contribution by Eppstein is technical and develops means of searching the knowledge structure efficiently.Performance on an in-class college general chemistry exam does not correlate with the initial level of student mastery measured by ALEKS ... 0310712012 02.04 .2012 01: 1: 01 12.28.2011 OOEQW a#39;7 _ mist-22 so .10 as 005cmaquot;; a#39;4 a m 55 .6 as W a mm 42 .14 1, a lniial ... the items in the course of which the student has demonstrated mastery. strating mastery on a final exam, or in a subsequent course, anbsp;...
