Students Learn Math By Doing Math

Math 1065 has been redesigned to increase student learning by taking advantage of the capabilities of technology.  Students will meet with their instructor for 50 minutes a week in a traditional classroom setting.  An additional 3 flexible, required hours will be spent in the CAVE (College Algebra Virtual Environment).

During the traditional class time the instructor will:

  • Cover difficult topics
  • Connect topics and concepts
  • Work examples pointing out common student errors and misconceptions
  • Guide students through their semester responsibilities
  • Discuss study strategies

In the CAVE, students will:

  • Complete homework assignments using MyMathLab
  • Watch videos
  • Complete quizzes (multiple chances) using MyMathLab
  • Receive personalized help with concepts and skills
  • Complete tests and the final exam using MyMathLab
