|102 Essential Construction Math|
This self-paced class is intended to develop mathematical skills that can be applied to the construction trade through practice and application. This course is an introduction to other courses in construction. While this class is not a prerequisite for any other classes, it does provide a foundation for them. Each class is 10 weeks and on average a student can expect to spend 3-5 hours per class.
By the end of this class you should:
For this class it is highly recommended to keep a spiral bound or similar notebook to keep all assignments and notes together. Each week you will be given a lecture, assignment, answers (from the previous assignment) and a quiz. The reading and lecture will be designed to aid in the completion of the homework.
While homework will not be checked there will be answers posted each week to self-check your progress. There will also be a quiz testing the information from the previous assignments. There will also be two projects to complete, one mid-semester and one at the end of the class. The projects are applications of mathematics to a construction problem.
The following table lists the learning modules, the maximum value in points a student can receive within each module, and the time in which the modules must be finished.
Each module should take approximately one week to complete. Course modules will be made available after the previous module's quiz is compete. You will need to e-mail the instructor to make him aware of your progress and receive the case study quizzes.
Graded assignments will consist of one quiz for each module, two case studies and a final quiz. Each quiz will count for 10 points. The case studies are each worth 20 points. The final quiz is also worth 20 points.
Grades will be posted on a weekly basis. You will have full access to your grade sheet so you will be able to keep track of how you are doing at all times.
Your overall grade in the course will be determined by the total number of points you have accumulated on quizzes and assignments. The grading scale is as follows:
You will be given more information about the grading and other course matters in the Orientation Module.
You can find information about the textbook at http://www.constructionclasses.com/textbooks.htm#math . This book will include all the reading and the assignments.
WITHDRAWAL POLICY: You may withdraw from a course by sending an email to tina@aspeNational.org. Non-attendance or notifying the instructor does not constitute officially dropping or withdrawing from a course. Students who stop attending courses without officially dropping will receive a grade of U (unauthorized withdrawal) in the class. Refunds are not automatic. NO refunds are due unless the course is officially dropped within stated guidelines in the refund schedule. Please type your name in the text box agreeing to the withdrawal policy.
a. Withdrawal postmarked at least one working day before the first day of class – total fee less a $20 handling fee.
b. Refund requests postmarked on or after the first day and no later than two weeks after the first day of class will be refunded 65% of the fee, after which time there is no refund.
