Online Orientation

Step 5: Do the Following within Your MyStatLab Materials

You are now ready for Step 5 of your orientation.

Login to MyStatLab

To complete this step, you will need to be logged in to your MyStatLab materials. You log in by following the directions below.

  • Go to the MyStatLab web site. It should open in a new window so you can read the directions here while you perform the steps in the new window.
  • Bookmark that page on your computer (or make a desktop shortcut)
  • Click on the Sign In' button
  • Enter your Login Name and Password you chose then hit the 'Enter' key on your keyboard or click on the 'Log In' button
  • Notice the Publisher's Announcements on the top/right of the page. When MSL is going to be unavailable (and it's a planned outage), they will post an announcement here. Use those announcements to plan your times when you will work in the class materials.
  • Now, click on the class link to access the class materials. The class link will look something like:
    "Math 160 Online Section 6475 Spring 2016"
  • The class materials also contain class announcements posted by me. Read these (and the publisher's announcements) every day.

Once you have entered the class materials, please do the following:

  • Click on each link in the class menu (on the left)

You need to be intimately familiar with where everything in the class is located (Where are your Homework, Quizzes, Discussion Board, eBook, Practice (Tracked Tutorial) Exercises, Lecture Videos, eBook Solution Manuals, etc.?).

It may take an hour or more just to poke around and find out where everything is.

Once you have poked around enough and are familiar with where everything is (i.e. you've at least located the Second Half of your Orientation, at least one link for each of the following : Homework, Quizzes, Discussion Board, eBook, Practice (Tracked Tutorial) Exercises, and Lecture Videos go to the second half of the orientation.

  • Do ALL of the following activities

Complete and submit(through Document sharing) your Lab 0.  I will do my best to verify that you have correctly named your Lab0 file, but as a reminder I highly recommend printing out a hard copy of the Lab 0 instructions and keeping it close by when you work on your labs for the rest of the class.  ALWAYS BEGIN YOUR FILENAME WITH YOUR LAST NAME.  Once you do that, you should begin working in the class. Please don't wait till next week to get started as your first graded assignment is due this week. Please feel free to begin working right away. You do not have to wait until the semester begins to complete homework assignments and other assessments which don't require you to be on-campus.

There is no limit to how quickly you can move through this class (see Syllabus). Just don't go slower than the deadlines.

Congratulations!  Once you have successfully submitted your Lab0 you will have completed the orientation.  Now get started in the class!

FYI, you can tell if you successfully submitted the Lab0 by clicking on the Lab 0 folder in MyStatLab's Document Sharing page and verifying that YOU can see your submission in front of you.

Welcome to the class. I look forward to a wonderful semester with you!

I want to acknowledge Janeen Apalatea(MiraCosta College) for the creation of this online orientation
