Unformatted text preview: MATH 1330, SECTION 16342 Pre-calculus, Summer 2011 COURSE SYLLABUS Instructor: Melahat Almus Email: email@example.com Course Homepage: online.math.uh.edu/courses CourseWare: www.casa.uh.edu Overview This is a 10 week online course offered by the Department of Mathematics, University of Houston. We have created a course that has many of the features of a face-to-face class. There are certain special requirements for an online class and a detailed description of all aspects of the course is given below. Course Homepage and CourseWare It is highly recommended that you check the course homepage (listed above) and the CourseWare page at least once a day during the Semester. This will allow you to stay up to date with assign- ments, homework and announcements. The course homepage will provide you with access to online sessions, homework assignments, the syllabus, the course calendar, online lectures and useful links. Course notes and notes from class sessions will be available on the course homepage. The CourseWare account will provide you with access to online quizzes, grades, electronic multiple choice forms (EMCFs), a discussion board and an exam scheduler. You will need to register for a CourseWare account in the first few days of the Summer 2011 semester. Note that all class corre- spondence will be posted on the discussion board (see information on Discussion Board below). Text You do not need to purchase a text. It can be accessed electronically through CourseWare (for Math 1313, 1314, 1431, 1432 and 2433) and through http://online.math.uh.edu/ (for Math 1310 and 1330).
