We will be covering a chapter every 2 weeks. You will be expected to read the book, watch videos, and practice with supplementary materials to understand the concepts. Each week, there will be homework quizzes due and journals explaining what you've learned, what you're struggling with, and how you plan to prepare for the upcoming exams. The students are expected to keep up with the material as it will be difficult to catch up if a student falls behind.
Your grade for the course will be based on: • Reading (10%) • WileyPlus Homework Quizzes (15%) • WileyPlus Tests (4 at 15% each) • Journal (15%)
