Distance Education: Web Course Information
- From the Instructor:
- MATHEMATICS AND DISTANCE LEARNING Learning mathematics online is not easy. It is imperitive that your weekly schedule has room for at least 15 hours a week for this course. Just like in a face-to-face 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. To succeed in this course you will need to have strong time management skills and be comfortable with computers. Visit the Distance Learning Page to determine if an online course is right for you. Please seriously consider your level of preparation with the prerequisite material (MTH 20), the amount of time you can devote to this course each week, and if an online learning environment for mathematics is conducive to your learning style. PROCTORED EXAMS MTH 60 requires two proctored, closed note, closed book, open-response exams that count for 55% of the total grade for the course. The proctored exams are administered at the Southeast Campus. If you live 60 miles from the SE Campus, contact me to arrange to have your exams proctored at another site. The exam dates will be: October 31 December 12 If you have a conflict with either of these times, make sure to let me know at the start of the term.
- Course Specific Requirements:
- In this course MyMathLab is required. You can either purchase a standalone MyMathLab access code (this comes with an electronic copy of the book and student solutions manual) or you can purchase a new book that comes with MyMathLab. I will email out instructions on this before the first week of classes to your PCC email account.
