Other Information about the Course

Please check your Bucks e-mail for information about registering into the Course site. Please know that we do NOT use BB/Vista. Instead, we are using Course Compass as our Learning Management System. It requires an access code but that code is provided in the custom edition of the book you can purchase at the bookstore. MATH120 College Algebra by Lial. It is a Pearson product. An alternative is to just purchase access to the site at www.coursecompass.com with a credit card. In either case, you'll need the Course ID which I will furnish in that e-mail. If you have any questions or concerns, e-mail me at angelol@bucks.edu. This is a four-credit class that will require a number of hours each week devoted to watching videos, reading the interactive textbook, working on the interactive tutorials and doing online homework and quizzes. There will be a midterm and final that must be taken at one of the Testing Centers. These tests will be paper/pencil. Good luck!
