Hawkes Learning System


Students enrolled in MTH-0900, Prealgebra and Basic Geometry, use the Hawkes Learning Systems (HLS) tutorial software program in all class sections. The HLS tutorial program includes instructional material as well as practice and assessment features that provide immediate feedback to help students prepare and determine their readiness for tests administered in class.

The HLS software and license is packaged with the textbook when purchased in the CSM College Store. It may also be purchased independently from Hawkes Learning Systems at their website (  Each student MUST have a license number in order to gain a unique access code to use the software.  Software licenses are NOT transferrable. Students are encouraged to familiarize themselves with the HLS product before their classes begin, but work completed before the first day of class can not be credited.  Course IDs are needed for initial access (for MTH 0900: CSMDPRE).

Though the software can be utilized independently, all MTH-0900 HLS assignments require connection to the Internet.  Students are encouraged to complete HLS assignments on campus using computers in libraries and learning labs, but may be able to operate the product on personal computers as well.
