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.)

Other Orientation Information
There is no face to face Orientation for this course. The Orientation will be online. I will email you the power point presentation along with the Basic Course Information Sheet for College Algebra. A Power Point Presentation will demonstrate how to self enroll in Course Compass. Look for it at your Bucks Email. Get the text book at the College bookstore for a very discounted rate. It includes the access code to MyMathLab.

Accessing Your Course

MyMathLab

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.

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.
