You should start every chapter with reading the lecture pages and example problems. There will be a question forum for each chapter where you can ask for clarification of the example problems or discuss the concepts being covered in that chapter in general. Supplemental Readings: At the start of the week you should be reading information (ie: documents, videos, etc.) linked in the weekly lesson packet (under “Lessons” on left side of screen inside classroom). Forum Assignments: Under the Forums link you will see forums set up by chapters. You will be showing and explaining in words the steps to two practice problems from your textbook for each of these chapter forum assignments. Your first forum assignment will be your introduction to the classroom (this is a course requirement-see above for details) and then you will have a forum for each chapter to show your practice problems. Along with those forums you will also have some ‘Special Forum’ assignments where you do a little research on where the concepts you are learning are used in real life as well as two opportunities to share your thoughts about the course (midterm and end of course). Make sure you read the full forum description for details on how you must do your posts and how to earn the credit before you post any work. The schedule for posts is in the course outline at end of syllabus, the weekly lesson packets and is noted in the Forum titles. It is your
- 6. responsibility to read through all posts in each forum and not to repeat a problem already done by another student at the time you post your problem as well. You will need to read through the all posts in the problem forums as well as the question forum before you post yours to assure you have not repeated other problems posted by fellow students. If you are working diligently on all the practice problems in the book as you should be then you will have no problem earning full participation points in the forums. My Math Lab: As a part of your course registration you will have access to MyMathLab which will give you added resources to help with your weekly studies. You will find a link on the left side of the screen that will send you right to your MyMathLab workspace. There are pre-tests set up in your study plan for you to take as a practice test to prepare you for the graded chapter tests. You will also find your e-book available within MyMathLab. Exams/Quizzes: There will be one test covering each chapter of the book(due dates are in the course outline) and a midterm test that will cover chapters 1 – 5 (as well as the final exam). These tests will be taken inside the MyMathLab website and they will be timed and they will be open 10 days prior to the duedate (except for Chapter 1 test which will be open on Day 1 of class and due the last day of the first week which is Sunday 11:59 pm EST. Final Exam: The Final Exam will be taken during the last week of the semester. It is a timed exam consisting of twenty multiple choice problems covering Chapters 1 - 10. You will have two hours to complete it. This exam will be taken within MyMathLab as well. The final exam will be opened at the beginning of the week it is due: final week of the course. You

Netiquette Online universities promote the advancement of knowledge through positive and constructive debate – both inside and outside the classroom. Forums on the Internet, however, can occasionally degenerate into needless insults and “flaming.” Such activity and the loss of good manners are not acceptable in a university setting – basic academic rules of good behavior and proper “Netiquette” must persist. Remember that you are in a place for the rewards and excitement of learning which does not include descent to personal attacks or student attempts to stifle the Forum of others. · Technology Limitations: While you should feel free to explore the full-range of creative composition in your formal papers, keep e-mail layouts simple. The Sakai classroom may not fully support MIME or HTML encoded messages, which means that bold face, italics, underlining, and a variety of color-coding or other visual effects will not translate in your e-mail messages. · Humor Note: Despite the best of intentions, jokes and especially satire can easily get lost or taken seriously.
