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

The student will complete the Prerequisite Project Assignment. This project consists of a combination of prerequisite math problems and questions involving course information. The grade for this project will be determined by completing the problems and submitting the assignment correctly, the student does not need to get every prerequisite math question correct to get a perfect score on the project.

(TSQR: 1-3)

Homework Assignments (16)

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. Each module, one assignment will be due Friday night and the second will be due Monday night, except for the final module.

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

Quizzes (12)

Using the online WebAssign software, the student will complete 12 module quizzes. Each module quiz will be based on the readings, watch videos, the corresponding homework of the assigned module. Module quizzes are timed assignments, and must each be completed within 30 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 2 hours (120 minutes). On all written work, the student is expected to write correct mathematics to avoid point deductions.
