Course Requirements Checklist
After reading the Course Syllabus and Student Expectations, the student will complete the related checklist found in the Course Overview.
The Orientation Assignment is located within WebAssign to allow the student to learn how the program works and how to read and enter answers. It also reviews some of the policies for this class, but there is no real math content, thus the assignment is only worth 1 point.
Module Exercise Assignments (43)
The student will complete Module Exercises using the WebAssign software. The student must earn a score of 70% on these exercises before taking any quizzes that may be present in the same module/week.
Module Quizzes (10)
Module Quizzes will be administered through the WebAssign software. Each quiz has about 10 questions and will be based on the reading and exercises of the assigned module/week. There is no time limit for completion. The Module Exercises in each module/week must be completed first in order to unlock the quiz.
Exam Review Assignments (4)
There is an exam review assignment before each test. The exam review will only count as 8 points toward the student's final grade. Please note, the test will remain locked until at least 70% has been earned on that assignment.
Exam Assignments (3)
Using WebAssign, the student will take 3 exams throughout the course. Exams are based on the readings and Module Exercises.

All exams will have a time limit of 2 hours and 45 minutes.
