Spring 2010Welcome to the MTLC
(www.ua.mylabsplus.com) NEW THIS SEMESTER
Every student must have a new access code to access to the publisher’s online website where assignments can be completed.
An access code gives you access to the ua.mylabsplus website where you will find your assignments.
The code gives you access to an online textbook, video lectures, examples of assignments and many more useful tools to help you be successful in this course.
Access codes may be purchased with or without a printed version of the textbook.
You may purchase the code with the textbook at any of the bookstores in town.
You may purchase the code without a printed version of the book either at one of the bookstores in town or online on the mylabsplus website set up for your specific math course.
Again, no work can be completed until you have entered your access code into your account.
If you are repeating the course from UA, then you do not need to buy a new access code. However, due to the change in web address this semester, you will need to come to the MTLC in person to get an access code from us so you can do your work. Do this as soon as possible. Remember, you cannot do any work until you come and get your access code.
Possible grades in this course are A, B, C, D, F, (+/-).
A grade of D or F will affect your GPA and you would need to retake the course.
The last day to withdraw from the course is Wednesday, March 24. No withdrawals will be given after this date.
Students must earn a minimum of 700 points to successfully pass this course.
MWF—1 point each
TR—1.5 points each
There will also be a quiz given after each section. Only one attempt is allowed on quizzes. Each quiz has approximately 10 questions.
You will be shown the correct answers on the quiz once it is graded.
You can only review the quiz immediately after it has been scored. So be sure to notice which questions you missed and why.
You will be allowed to drop one lowest homework grade and one lowest quiz grade each test period.
Homework is worth 22 points each test period.
Quizzes are worth 43 points each test period.
