Math 100AX is taught in a virtual environment because we have found that we could more easily keep the student-to-teacher ratio at 10:1. Although this course meets in an online classroom, please note that the student is not alone in class. The teaching staff is interacting throughout the entire meeting period with the students.
Students are given a very specific, individualized and structured program which includes: daily homework assignments in ALEKS that are individualized based on the student's progress and placement goals, required online attendance in a virtual classroom where they interact with their designated teaching assistant each class period, and weekly assessments. With a 10:1 ratio, we have created a smaller and more individualized classroom that happens to be in a virtual environment.
