From the Instructor:

Meeting days

There are two required on campus proctored exams during the term:
  • Exam 2: the week of Monday 5/19/14
  • Final: the week of Monday 6/9/14
Please note that you will have the choice of a day time or an evening session. If you live in the Portland area then you will be required to come to the Cascade campus- arrangements will not be made to have the exam taken at any of the other campuses.

If you live outside of the Portland area, then you will be responsible for making arrangements to have it proctored. Contact me immediately if this applies to you, this must be arranged by the end of the second week of term.

Please read the following:
  • While some on line classes complete everything on line, all MTH 65 classes at PCC have proctored exam requirements.
  • PCC requires you to come to campus twice this term.
  • The on campus exams are compulsory.
  • You can not receive a passing grade in this class if you do not take the 2 on campus exams.
  • If you think it is completely unfair or unreasonable to require on campus exams, please consider dropping this class.
  • You can drop this class by the Friday of week 1 and receive a complete refund.


We will use the same book that you used in MTH 60.

  • An introduction which describes the module's subject matter in brief;
  • Lecture notes;
  • Suggested reading from the text;
  • Assignments (with due dates);
  • Homework problems both using WeBWorK and using the equation editor;
  • Conclusion.
