bulletCourse Information
     
TechnologyYou must have a valid e-mail address.  All work is done through the internet, so you need good internet access.  If you do not have internet access, you may use the computers in the math lab.  All work is submitted over the internet as soon as you finish. 
        Grade:  Homework 30%  Tests 40%  Final exam 25% Scavenger Hunt & Discussion Board 5%  You will receive an 'F' if you do not take the final exam or if you score less than a 50.

        Pacing:  This course is not a self-paced course.   All material and assignments are date specific and must be followed.  The course is broken up by chapters with weekly due dates.   The chapters will have to be completed by the due dates and test taken in the time frame provided.  If you do not finish by the due date, you will get a grade on what you completed and given zeros for what you did not complete.  Stay up with the course.  Make an effort to work on the course everyday.   This will also help you learn the material better.  You may turn in assignments before the due date, but you cannot work ahead.  Remember that each section is submitted to me as you finish.
