 Mathematics, rightly viewed, possesses not only truth, but supreme beauty - a beauty cold and austere, like that of sculpture.  Bertrand Russell (1872 - 1970)

This course covers the same material as the on-campus version and is presented as 16 modules in a 17-18-week format. Although the course is not "self-paced", you can decide when, during each week, to do all the required work. The typical student spends about 12-15 hours per week to master the material for this 4-unit course. Course requirements include projects and discussion postings, weekly online homework assignments and proctored examinations. Students are required to use an interactive online program (MyLab/Mastering)  to master the material and complete assignments. Students may have a note card for each exam so memorizing formulas will not be necessary. Students are strongly encouraged to log into the scheduled orientation at the beginning of the semester. Login instructions are available on the syllabus.

Note: The Friday section has computerized, online testing in a computer lab on the Pleasant Hill campus and the Saturday section has paper exams in a regular classroom on Saturdays.  All students are required to show a valid photo ID when they come to take the scheduled exams.

This course will cover the same material as the 18-week Fall/Spring course but will be presented in a 9 Module 6-week format so be prepared to put in about 25 hours per week to master the material.   All students are encouraged to attend the online orientation. Login instructions are available through the link on the left along with the syllabus. During the orientations I will be demonstrating the course management system and answering questions. Students wishing to add should join a waitlist and attend one of the orientations. I do not anticipate being able to add students who are not on the waitlist but you can come to an orientation if you like in the hopes that there will be unexpected openings.  In addition to the orientations there will be face to face exams on the Pleasant Hill campus so please mark those dates on your calendars!

This course covers the same material as the on-campus version and is presented as 15 modules in a 17-18-week format. Although the course is not "self-paced", you can decide when, during each week, to do all the required work. The typical student spends about 12-15 hours per week to master the material for this 4-unit course. Course requirements include projects and discussion postings, weekly online homework assignments and proctored examinations. Students are required to use an interactive online program (MyLab/Course Compass)  to master the material and complete assignments. Students may have a note card for each exam so memorizing formulas will not be necessary. Students are strongly encouraged to attend the scheduled orientation at the beginning of the semester.

Note:  Both sections have scheduled multiple choice exams on Saturdays.  Section 5352 meets in the mornings and Section 5353 meets in the afternoons. All students are required to show a valid photo ID when they come to take the scheduled exams.

When classes are full, I will only be adding waitlisted students who attend one of the scheduled orientations.
