General Information -Web Based Math2200  

Online MATH2200 is designed for those who need flexibility in their schedule, feel comfortable communicating by email, have some experience using the Internet, and are self-motivated.  It is a great way to learn at home and with a course based on interesting projects that use real data in an online course.  The only on-campus meetings are the Mandatory orientation and a proctored final exam.

What is the work load?

            Since this is a 3 hour course, in general, students can expect to spend 3 to 12 hours a week involved in course work.  However, if your computer is at your home, you will save the drive time of going to and from campus twice a week. In addition, there are times when you can complete assignments ahead of the course schedule which may help with your time management and balancing your other responsibilities.

 What about the Course Materials and delivery?

The course uses GeorgiaView Vista8 to delivery the syllabus, weekly assignments, projects, and discussion area.  The lessons, quizzes, and exams are accessed by using the Hawkes Learning Systems CD and Web site.  The course is setup around weekly pages that guide students through the weeks assignments.  While the textbook and Hawkes CD are the primary resource, each weekly page will contains links to other resources to help you learn.

Mandatory Attendance

You must attend one of the Mandatory Orientation session that are listed in the GHC Academic Classes schedule.  If you do not attend one of these, you will be withdrawn from the course. All other work will be completed online.  In addition, you may be required to take a proctored on-campus final exam.
