I'm not sure how it transfers but it sounds like it may be a good option for people who aren't big fans of math.

Buying the main course gives you access to a few other interesting looking courses(not worth credit): Problem-Solving People, Mathematical Intuitions, Social Science Explorations, and Career Strategies Course

It also offers a free trial which I will be checking out tomorrow.

The CSM Course

Credit Type:

Course

ACE Course Number:

0001

Organization:

CSMlearn, Public Benefit Corporation

Location:

CSMlearn, Public Benefit Corporation

Length:

Self-paced (20-120 hours)

8/1/2017 - 2/28/2021

Objective:

The course objective is to build high performance skills, attitudes, and behaviors.

Learning Outcome:

Upon completion of the course, the student will be able to apply key quantitative skills such as mental math, basic statistical concepts, measurement, and more; appraise information from a variety of forms of complex informational text and graphs; analyze problems using a variety of advanced problem-solving strategies; develop new skills independently through reading; and develop and formulate strategies to solve quantitative problems, including quantitative reasoning and problem-solving.

Instruction:

The methods of instruction include computer-based training. The general course topics include math skills, literacy skills, problem-solving strategies, independent learning, persistence, attention to detail and carefulness, high personal expectations, and self-efficacy.

Assessment:

The methods of assessment include formative assessments in an adaptive learning environment with a minimum passing score of 100 percent.

Credit Recommendation:

In the lower-division baccalaureate/associate degree category, 3 semester hours in quantitative reasoning (3/18).

Also, a study testing the following 5 products:

CSM, Reading Horizons Elevate (Reading Horizons), My Foundations Lab (Pearson), ALEKS (McGraw Hill), and GED Academy (Essential Education).

Found that:

Of the five evaluated products, only CSM had significant positive impact on math scores, and CSM also had the highest improvement in literacy scores. CSM also had the highest engagement.
