PreAlg – Progress as of Friday, October 26

As of Friday, October 26, we finished Chapter 6.  On Monday, October 29, we will do a Sample Exam #2 as a review.  This exam covers Chapters 4, 5, and 6.  You should complete all Chapter 4, 5, and 6 homeworks and quizzes by Monday, Oct. 29.

To give you an accurate reflection of what your grade is as of now, all work that should be completed, but isn’t, has been issued a zero.  Your grade average in mymathlab will reflect that.  Now of course if you do those homeworks, quizzes, and tests, whatever grade you get will overwrite the zero.  So get that work done!

Exam 2 will be enabled after the review on Oct 29. It will be due Saturday, November 3 at 11:59pm. You have two takes; the better grade of the two is used. Remember, if you use a take(s) after the due date, there will be a 10 point deduction from the grade on that take.

Wednesday’s class on October 31 is cancelled. Use can use that time to find a working computer on campus and take the test!

If you find you are too far behind and guilty of not keeping up with the material, instead of failing this class, you can transfer to what is called a self paced class.  You can transfer whatever work you did manage to complete and perhaps get 1 or 2 credits for it.  You won’t be able to continue to Algebra 1, but at least you’ll get some credit for what you did.  In self paced, it is possible to earn 3 credits by studying and doing work on your own.  To go on to Algebra 1 you must either pass a lecture class with a C- or earn 3 credits in self paced.

If this sounds like a good option, please see the staff in the testing center  17/425.  They can help with getting you assigned to a self paced class.
