Orientation for this course is optional.
Your instructor will be handling orientation as indicated below.
Your instructor will hold the orientation online using self-paced tools, email and/or discussions. (A self-paced orientation does NOT mean the entire course is self-paced.) You should plan to access your online course no later than the first day of the session. Failure to do so may jeopardize your grade.
Other Orientation Information
The instructor will send information about the course and how to register at MyMathLab to BCCC student email accounts approximately one week before the beginning of the course. All students are expected to follow the steps in the 'Getting Started' email attachment to successfully register at MyMathLab in the first week of the course.
Any student having difficulty with the registration for MyMathLab may contact the instructor at email@example.com for assistance.
Accessing Your Course
Your course is using MyMathLab, which requires the purchase of an
access code. This code is usually packaged with a new textbook, but may also be purchased
separately from the MyMathLab website if it is not included with your book.
Information about MyMathLab can be found at http://www.mymathlab.com. Please check the systems Requirement page to verify your computer compatibility.
Your instructor will provide an additional course code you will need to
access your specific course.
Purchasing Your Books and Other Course Materials
While you may purchase your books and other course materials from the provider of your choice (using the
ISBN number available through the course's academic department
where applicable to ensure the correct version), both the campus bookstore
and our online bookstore,
guarantee that they stock the correct version for your course.
