What to Expect in this Course
The textbook for this course is: Webassign access code for Calculus by James Stewart (8th ed.)
A hard copy of the textbook is not required. The only required material is Webassign student access code and your COC email account. You can either purchase the access code online through COC Bookstore or from Cengage’s website on the first day of the semester when you login to Canvas.
You must attend the first class meeting via Zoom. Everything will be announced via Canvas. Any student absent on that day will be dropped unless I am notified in advance with a valid reason.
Your course material will consist of the online textbook, video lectures, virtual lectures, worksheets, and other online resources.
You will probably spend at least twenty-five hours per week for this course and even longer because of the nature of online courses and dealing with technology. You will have online homework that needs to be completed daily. I will be available to address any questions you have.
To organize our course materials and assignments, we will use Canvas. The detailed instructions will be under Modules tab.
In general, we will meet synchronously once a week for discussions and classwork. Exams will also be given during your scheduled class time online. During the exams, you will be asked to have your webcams on. You will be asked to take an oral assessment if there is no webcam provided.
A typical weekly schedule: watch a series of lecture videos covering one section while taking notes, organize and review the lecture notes as necessary, and do assigned exercises from the section covered. Attend scheduled zoom meetings to discuss the materials for the week.
Types of Assessments
Online proctored exams, online homework, discussion boards and worksheets.
