Supplements are extra resources to use alongside your course if you are an instructor. They correspond with assignments and include PowerPoints, worksheets, and labs which are both downloadable and fully customizable to use however you see fit. We hope they are helpful as you teach your course!
Powerpoints include instruction from Knewton’s alta, as well as a mix of unique assessment questions and assessment questions from alta.
Worksheets consist of questions that are similar to what students will see in alta, but the problems are unique. This means that they may be used in the classroom to provide additional whole class, small group, or individual practice to reinforce student understanding. They can also be sent as supplementary work to students who are learning entirely online. These assessments will include an answer key and application-based problems where possible.
Labs are available for Quantitative Reasoning courses.
Locate and Distribute Supplements
There are two ways to access supplements:
- You must be a registered Knewton's alta instructor and logged in to access all powerpoint and worksheet supplements from Knewton. Click the 'Supplements' link from your grey silhouette dropdown in your Knewton account to be taken to the Google Folder with all the Worksheets and Powerpoints organized by course:
You can also search our Help Center to find Powerpoints for your individual course: simply open up the chat window in the lower right-hand corner of your screen:
Scroll down to Find an answer for yourself and type in the name of the alta ISBN you are using. Click the arrow button to search.
You’ll see a list containing a few of our courses. If you see yours, click on the title! If you don’t see your ISBN, click See More Results to bring up a comprehensive list of available ISBNs in a new tab. You can also find these articles directly on our help center at support.knewton.com. Note: worksheets will not be available through our Help Center so that answer keys are not posted for student use.
Once you click on your ISBN, you’ll be brought to a page containing links to collections of available Worksheets, PowerPoints, or Labs. Double click to open each link! All supplements are available on a Google Drive, so you will be opening a Google Document or Slides deck, or downloading a Word document.
For efficiency, you can easily download the whole folder holding all the individual items as a zip file from Google Drive. To do so, click the arrow next to the title of the folder and choose 'Download'.
If you’d like to customize or edit the materials in any way, you can make a copy of the supplement and save it to your personal Google Drive or computer or download your own version. To do this, click File and then either Make a Copy… or Download as… and choose the format you’d like your supplement to be in.
