Read this letter carefully.
Dear Mathematics Student,
Welcome to your mathematics course. I hope you find this course interesting and use this as an opportunity to acquire another skill for your portfolio. Because of the nature of this course, it is important that you respect and honor the views of your classmates.
This semester runs from August 29 - December 18, 2005.
If you are taking an On-Line course, you may find that it requires more of your effort than a traditional setting because the course does NOT meet face-to-face. There is a required on-campus orientation and it is scheduled the evening of Thursday, August 22nd. Please check for specific times in mid-August. Participation is strongly recommended. Trips to campus are necessary initially to purchase your textbook and later to take announced tests and the final. These tests will be taken in the Campus Assessment Center in Bladen 100.
If you are taking the course face-to face on campus, remember, attendance is a requirement. Participation is strongly recommended to clarify concepts. You can contact the bookstore on-line or go in person to purchase your textbook package. Tests (but not the final) are taken in the Campus Assessment Center in Bladen 100.
If you have any questions or problems, please feel free to call me (301-322-0461) or send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Since you are reading this on-line, you have already found my web page.
