  1. New lessons will be posted on the Lessons page of the course website by 10:00 am each Monday.
  2. The lessons should be done in the order they appear in the Current Lessons section of the Lessons page.
  3. Follow the instructions for each lesson. Plan to spend at least 200 minutes each week working through lessons and at least 400 minutes each week working on homework problems.

  5. After completing the lessons for the week (meaning one has worked through each lesson, completed all of the homework problems, thoroughly understood the material covered in the lesson, and reworked the homework problems several times), students will take a 50-point online quiz covering the lesson material. The 60-minute quiz may be accessed via Brightspace by clicking on the Quizzes link in the navigation bar. The quiz must be completed by 11:59 pm on Sunday.
