Instructor comments:

A sample syllaubs and course calender from a prior term are available and contain further details about this course:

An online math course provides all of the resources and instructor support that you will need. Even though you won't physically attend class each week, it's imperative that you set aside an appropriate amount of time for the course each week. Just like in a face-to-face MTH 111 class, you should expect to spend 5 hours per week on lecture-equivalent course components (reading your textbook and lecture notes, watching videos, and participating in discussions) and an additional 10 - 12 hours per week working on practice homework, graded homework, and quizzes. This course is not self-paced and has assignments due each week; that said, it's also designed to allow you maximum flexibility with your own weekly schedule.
