Instructor comments:

Mandatory First Week Assignments: There are two mandatory assignments, 1) a syllabus assignment and 2) completion of the chapter 1 review material, including an intial assessment, (knowledge check) within the online  ALEKS online assessment that must be completed by the first Wednesday of the term. Student must complete both of these assignments by this due date to keep their spot in the class.

Early Course Access: Students will have access to the course the Friday before the term begins. This will allow each student to spend time getting used to the course and to confirm the course will be a good fit. It will also allow students to begin working on the course early, if there is a need or interest to do so.
