Math 010 online work that is due today at the start of class: • Gateway Homework #3 (turn in worksheet now, while I take roll) • Section 1.2/1.8 Online Homework
Any questions on the homework for Sections 1.2/1.8 before we start today’s review for the Gateway Quiz?
Homework Assignment due at start of next class: • Take the Practice Gateway at least once before class. (You can take it as many times as you like, and only your best score counts for points.) • You should also try Practice Quiz 1 at least once before the next class period. (This is different from the Practice Gateway quiz. • You have until the class session after next to re-do Practice Quiz 1 as many times as you want, and you’ll have a chance to ask about any problems on it before we take the Gateway Quiz at the next class session.)
Quiz coming up next class session: Gateway Quiz, first try: • 8 questions, 35 minutes. • Online, but you’ll get a paper worksheet for showing your work • No calculators • We’ll be reviewing for this in class today. • Answers must be completely correct, with fractions in simplest form. Reminders: • Passing the Gateway Quiz with a 100% (8/8) score at some point during the semester is a requirement for passing this class. • You may take the quiz multiple times until you pass. • Only your best score out of all attempts on the “real” gateway will count towards your overall grade. (And since you’ll eventually get 100%, there’s 80 points towards you course score!) • The second attempt will also be given in class 3 weeks from now. After that, there will be weekly opportunities to take the quiz outside of class. • In previous semesters, all students who have passed the other requirements for the course have also passed the Gateway requirement. (The average student took 4-5 attempts to pass.)
You have had a number of practice Gateway questions mixed in with your regular homework assignments, but you should also take Practice Gatewaysbefore the next class session: • 8 questions, same type as on the actual Gateway. • Time limit of 35 minutes, same as the actual Gateway. • Can take it as many times as you want. • Best score counts for that percent of 8 points. (Each time you take the practice quiz, your overall course score will be updated to only include you best attempt.) • Additional paper versions of practice Gateways can be picked up in the open lab from any TA or teacher. REMEMBER: Gateway study/help available every MTWTh from 8:00 a.m. – 6:30 p.m. in Room 203 JHSW..
Quiz coming up the next class session afterthe Gateway Quiz: Quiz 1on sections 1.2 through 1.8 • 15 questions; 50 minute time limit • Taken in class, but via the online course web site, with Lockdown Browser • Worth 60 points • 1 attempt • No calculators allowed Practice Quiz 1should be taken at least 2-3 times before the quiz day: • 15 questions; 50 minute time limit; can take it anywhere • Worth 6 points • Unlimited attempts, only best score counts • Each time you take it, you will get a different set of questions, so the more times you take it, the more chances you’ll have of seeing all the types of questions that might be on the real quiz. • Don’t use a calculator, since you can’t on the real quiz. REMEMBER: Come to the open lab in 203 if you need help. M – Th: 8:00 a.m. – 6:30 p.m.
Review for the Gateway Quiz: • To start with, we’ll install the Pearson Lockdown used for the rest of the quizzes and tests. • Then you’ll get a chance to take a 7-point Preview Gateway in class to practice for the 80-point Gateway that will be given at the next class session. • If you don’t finish the preview Gateway by the end of this class session, you’re welcome to stay after class and finish it in the open lab next door. • You should go over any problems you miss on this preview quiz with a teacher or TA in the open lab to make sure you know how to do them all before the “real” Gateway Quiz at the next class session.
Installation of Lockdown Browser: • We will now be installing the lockdown browser for Pearson’s My Lab & Mastering • This is different from the D2L lockdown browser, and must be installed even if you have already used/installed the D2L Lockdown Browser. • This Pearson Lockdown Browser must be installed from within your MyLab course website, so log in now if you aren’t already logged in.
To take the In-class Gateway Preview: • Put your calculators and cell phones away and close all tabs/windows on your laptop. • Log in to CourseCompass • Click on “Quizzes & Tests” • Click on In-class Gateway
Then select In-Class Gateway Preview. • Enter the password (on whiteboard). Now we will install the Lockdown Browser.
Check Your Browser (If you have used the Pearson Lockdown Browser before, you might just see the usual “I am ready to start” button.)
IF YOU HAVE ANY TROUBLE GETTING THE LOCKDOWN BROWSER TO RUN, JUST RAISE YOUR HAND AND A TA WILL COME TO HELP YOU GET IT WORKING.
Final Steps • After the download has completed, close all windows • The button that said “Check Your Browser” should now say “I am ready to start” • Your time clock doesn’t begin until the loading process is finished and your first question appears on the screen.
You will then have 35 minutes to complete the quiz. (If you finish early, feel free to get started on the Practice Gateway Quiz #1 assignment.) • Make sure you show all steps of your work for each problem in complete and clear detail on the paper worksheet. No calculators of any type may be used for this quiz. • When finished, click “submit” and then write your score on the answer sheet. DON’T FORGET TO ALSO TAKE THE PRACTICE GATEWAY QUIZ #1 AT LEAST ONCE BEFORE NEXT CLASS SESSION!!
