Information

Math 89/90 Online Courses:

Thank you for your interest in adding my online Math 89 or 90 course!

The course will be available for access the Wednesday before classes begin and will wrap up with our final exam.This is a hybrid course, which means you will be required to come to campus four times during the summer session on the following dates/times:

MATH 90:
ORIENTATION: Wednesday, January 11th (3-5 PM) Sierra Hall 137
You must attend the orientation session to continue in the class or to be added to the class. (Students that do not attend orientation will be dropped from the class.)
MIDTERM #1:  Wednesday, February 15th (3-5 PM) Sierra Hall 137
MIDTERM #2:  Wednesday, March 29th (3-5 PM) Sierra Hall 137
FINAL EXAM:  Wednesday, April 26th (1-3:50 PM) Sierra Hall 137


MATH 89:
ORIENTATION: Wednesday, January 11th (5:30-7:30 PM) Sierra Hall 137
You must attend the orientation session to continue in the class or to be added to the class. (Students that do not attend orientation will be dropped from the class.)
MIDTERM #1:  Wednesday, February 15th (5:30-7:30 PM) Sierra Hall 137
MIDTERM #2:  Wednesday, March 29th (5:30-7:30 PM) Sierra Hall 137
FINAL EXAM:  Wednesday, April 26th (4:00-6:50 PM) Sierra Hall 137
 

COURSE SITE: The course is accessed through Canvas (https://modesto.instructure.com/login/canvas) See syllabus for additional information.

VIDEO NOTES: You will be required to watch videos and take notes. The note packets will be passed out at each meeting and be collected on the subsequent meeting.

FACEBOOK: You must join the class Facebook group,that is where questions and answers happen quickly! The group is closed to those outside our class and you may use an anonymous profile as long as you let me know which profile belongs to you!

ADDING THE COURSE: The wait list for this course is very long.
Students will be added in wait list order and will need to attend the orientation meeting in order to be considered for adding. I typically add from 5-10 students to the class depending on how many miss the orientation.

TEXTBOOK: Elementary and Intermediate Algebra: Concepts and Applications, 6th Edition by Bittinger; Ellenbogen; and Johnson. No textbook purchase is required for this course. You must purchase (or already have purchased) an access code for MyMathLab which contains access to the e-book version of the text. The course I.D will be included within the syllabus. If you previously took Math 70 at MJC, your access code will continue to work for this course, as the same text is used.

WHAT TO EXPECT:
The entire course instruction is delivered through the Internet. This is not a “self paced” course since there are deadlines. However, you will work on different topics somewhat at your own pace. To help stay on task, the syllabus will include a schedule for completing the homework, quizzes, and/or chapter tests. Students should expect to spend about 10-15 hours of study per week completing course activities.
