Title and Course Number: Elementary Statistics, Math 160
Instead of attending lectures on campus, online students use the web site, textbooks, and lab activities to learn. Students are responsible for reading the web site and completing all class activities, usually within the week. The class will be utilizing MyStatLab course management system to deliver and communicate all course material.
That's right! you will be required to complete an ONLINE orientation by the first day of class (see the college schedule). The only on campus face-to-face meeting that is required is the final exam.
Keep up with the class. The biggest problem online students have is gradually falling behind. You may lose points when assignments are late, and you may be dropped from the class if you get more than 5 assignments behind.
Schedule at least 9 hours per week for a 3 unit class. Remember, in a regular class you would be driving, parking, attending class, and doing homework. Don't think that that you don't need to make time for class just because you're not on campus.
Work with a small group either in-person or via phone or e-mail.
Contact your instructor as soon as you begin to have problems or if you decide to drop.
E-mail and discussion can be brief and casual.
