Details about this class

I'm happy you're considering taking my MTH 105 class! Read below to get a general idea of the class structure.

  • This class meets in-person. Class time will be a blend of lecture and collaborative discussion. There may also be a few quizzes that happen during class time. Online homework is completed outside of class.
  • Lecture notes will be posted in our class D2L page at online.pcc.edu. If you need to miss a class, it is your responsibility to find out what material was covered.
  • Our online textbook in this class is free. See the Class Materials box on this page for a link to the eBook.
  • There is no calculator to purchase. Calculations will be handled using free software tools, which I carefully show how to access and use.
  • There will be two proctored midterm exams during class (these usually occur during week 4 and week 8 of the term), plus a project that will be due during finals week.

If you have any questions, send me an email and I'll be happy to respond.



  • You will need access to a computer with internet access to complete the online homework and access our D2L page at online.pcc.edu.
  • Access to a scanner or a smartphone scanning app is useful if you need to miss a class and submit a take-home quiz online.
