Other Information about the Course

This is a 3-credit course. Expect to spend at least two hours of study for each class hour. Study time should be spent:
  1. Going over notes from previous class. Taking careful notes is important. Write down concepts or problems that you do not understand during class. Come in for help if you need it.
  2. Doing assigned problems. The best way to learn mathematics is to do problems. Practice of homework assignments cannot be overemphasized. Suggestion - put an * next to problems which give you trouble and ask about them during the next class.
  3. Watch the video lesson on the CD that corresponds to the topic covered in class. Read the text material paralleling the topics covered in class.

It is important to stay in touch on a regular basis. If you have problems or questions please contact me via email at fitte@bucks.edu. Please remember to include your full name, course and section number.

All tests will be proctored. There is a testing center at each of the three campuses: Newtown, Upper County, and Bristol. You may use any of them.
