•To remediate the student in mathematical skills as determined by standardized testing.
•To provide a mathematics background that the student will need to perform effectively in college-level math coursework.
All assignments will be completed using MyLabsPlus, an interactive software program, via the Internet. Assignments directly correlate to objectives covered in the textbook and must be completed, as assigned, after the objectives are covered in class. Due dates will be posted in MyLabsPlus and will NOT be extended. Points may be deducted for assignments that are submitted late. It is the student¡¦s responsibility to ensure that all assignments are submitted on time. If you do not have access to the internet at home you may use the open computer lab located at the library or the Learning Center. MyLabsPlus also provides supplemental instructional materials such as practice exercises, videos, animations, slide shows, and tutorials.
•Learning Center Lab
Students testing into any first-level developmental course or repeating a developmental course must be in remediation in the Learning Center for one hour per week. The LC requirement must be completed concurrently with the developmental math course, or a failing grade (DD¡¨ or ¡§F¡¨) will be issued for the course.
Chapter exams will be given online in the Learning Center at the end of each chapter or combined chapters. Students are required to have an active LamarPA account, MyLabsPlus access, photo ID, and pencil to test. A minimum score of 70% on all chapter homework is required prior to testing. Contact the instructor immediately if the testing arrangement conflicts with your schedule. Make-up exams will be given at the end of the semester after all other course requirements have been met, documentation has been provided, and has been approved by the instructor.
•Retesting will be available for students who put forth a reasonable effort towards the original exam as scheduled, have met all prerequisites, and received the approval of the instructor. There will be no retesting available for make-up exams.
•The instructor will average the highest test grade for each chapter and no exam grades will be dropped.
•Testing will be conducted in accordance with the operation standards and rules of the Learning Center. Exams will not be administered without proper identification or supplies. Exams will not be issued if the testing time conflicts with the student¡¦s math class, or the operational hours of the Learning Center.
The comprehensive final exam is given according to the LSC-PA schedule. There are no early, late or make-up final exam options and no retesting.
