Edready – NROC Math

EdReady is a program that uses NROC Math content to assess yourself in math from arithmetic to trigonometry, then helps you with a customized study plan showing you which areas you need more learning and practice with and which areas you have mastered. This is a great free program to prepare you for placement exams like the ACCUPLACER, to get some extra study help for your math class, or to practice for self-improvement.

You will create a free account if you want to save your work in the program.  If you just want to enter and check it out without creating an account, you can just click “Enter as Guest”, but any work you do will not be saved!  Also, there will be a prompt asking for a “Key”.  You do not need to type in a key to enter and use the site.  Just click the ‘Get Started’ button on the prompt and you will be able to enter and see the general math goals you can work on.

Note: The ‘key’ code is used by specific instructors who have prepared math sets for their own students to access. If your teacher has given you a ‘key’ code then enter this in the box when you sign up.
