Course Requirements Checklist

After reading the Course Syllabus and Student Expectations, the student will complete the related checklist found in the Course Overview.

Prerequisite Project Assignment

During Module 1: Week 1, you will complete the Prerequisite Project Assignment. This project consists of a combination of prerequisite math problems and questions involving course information. Your grade for this project will be determined by completing the problems and submitting the assignment correctly, you do not need to get every prerequisite math question correct to get a perfect score on the project.

(TSQR: 1-3)

Homework Assignments (8)

Homework will be assigned through WebAssign, and the student will have multiple attempts at each problem. Even though homework problems are given online, the student is encouraged to work out solutions on paper using correct mathematical notation before entering data into WebAssign.

(CLO: A-G, TSQR: 1-3)

Quizzes (4)

Using the online WebAssign software, you will complete 4 module quizzes. Each module quiz will be based on the readings, watch videos, the corresponding homework of the assigned module. Module quizzes and tests occur on separate weeks, so you will have at most one module quiz or one test each week. Module quizzes are timed assignments, and must each be completed within 45 minutes.

(CLO: A-G, TSQR: 1-3)

Quiz: Tests (3)

Each test will be timed, handwritten, and open-book/open-notes and will cover the Learn material for the assigned modules. The time limit for each test is 120 minutes (2 hours). On all written work, the student is expected to write correct mathematics to avoid point deductions.
