Welcome

 

Welcome to Math 0310, a BLENDED Web course.  

 

Let me introduce myself:  My name is Judy Godwin and I will be your instructor.  My educational background includes a Bachelors degree from the University of North Texas and a Masters degree from the University of Texas at Dallas .  It has been a great pleasure to teach at CCCCD, both full time and part time, for over 20 years.  I have seen the college grow from infancy to the educational institution we have today.

Taking an ONLINE course

 

Since the class does not have regular meetings, students need to be self-motivated and disciplined enough to keep up with the work.  This online class covers the same material as Math 0310 classes taught on-campus and each student works independently in a less structured learning environment.

When taking a course in an online learning environment, it is best if students possess attributes, skills and knowledge that contribute to success in online learning.  These elements include: 

·         Self-motivation

·         Time-management skills

·         Self-discipline

·         Reading Comprehension

·         Persistence

·         Availability of time

·         Ability to use a laptop, printer, software and the Internet

It is highly recommended that each student complete the READI (Readiness for Education

At a Distance Indicator) assessment.  Go to http://online.collin.edu and

select the “Are You READI” link. 

 

Course Structure

 

This online course is designed using Blackboard CE  which contains detailed course information.  Required labs and online tests are accessed and submitted using MyMathLab software.  The textbook and MyMathLab are used in accessing and completing the homework exercises.  Video CDs provide lectures on each section and chapter in the textbook.    .

 

Blackboard CE will be available by the first day class.  For further information concerning Blackboard CE, click on Math 0310 Course Overview
