TEXT: The PearsonMyLab MyMathLab Standalone Access Code (online text only) can be purchased at either PearsonMyLab.com ($129.80 as of Summer 2017) or the CCP Main bookstore (printed customized text with access code $190.85 as of Summer 2017). Only a PearsonMyLab access code is mandatory. PearsonMyLab contains ALL assignments, videos, and the text online ("Elementary Statistics," 12th Edition by Mario F. Triola, Boston: Pearson/Addison-Wesley, ©2014) so a printed textbook is optional. 

 

Login to Canvas CCP.Instructure.com for Discussion, Module Timeline information, and Class Notes.

Read your text, watch videos/animations, and do all graded Assignments (below) in PearsonMyLab.com by the due date(s) prescribed (given in class or in Canvas). Also, my Prospectus and Integrity Policy has useful information for achieving learning outcomes.

10                    FINAL EXAM

 

Grading: To calculate your Final weighted Average, add up the total # of points you've earned on all Assignments and divide by the total amount of possible points (points can be found in “Gradebook” in PearsonMyLab).  Convert to a %. Verify score in MyLab Gradebook. Timeliness of doing assignments (as per the syllabus), reading the discussion posts, and performance on the Final Exam will be taken into account, especially in borderline and equivocal cases.  You must work on ALL assignments to complete the course. Otherwise, a letter grade will be dropped for missing assignments.

A >= 90%

80% <= B <= 89%

70% <= C <= 79%

60% <= D <= 69%

F <= 59%
