MTH 201: Calculus

Daily Preparation, Module 1A: How do we measure velocity?

**Due by: 11:59pm ET, Wednesday September 2 **

Estimated time requirement: About 60 minutes for the whole assignment. If you have worked on this assignment for 30 minutes and you're not at least halfway done, DON'T work any further --- instead, stop and ask for help on the #dailyprep channel on CampusWire.

The Six Rules for MTH 124:

  1. Budget your time. MTH 124 is a 5-credit course with no meetings, so you will need to plan on spending about 15-20 hours per week doing mindful work. That’s 3-4 hours per weekday if you choose not to work on weekends. If you are taking other courses or have job of family responsibilities, you’ll need to think about where to put these hours in your daily and weekly schedules. In my experience, the #1 reason students don’t succeed in online courses is overcommitment and not managing time well.
  2. Take initiative. Ask questions on CampusWire (or email, if they’re private) when you don’t understand something after working with it. And make the first move to help a fellow student with their questions if you can help.
  3. Get comfortable with technology. Being a fully-online course, we will use technology every day. Get comfortable with using technology early, so you can use it well.
  4. Stay engaged. As mentioned above, you are expected to check your GVSU email twice dai
View Basic expectations.md

Basic expectations for MTH 124 students:

  • Spend about 10-15 hours per week, or 2-3 hours per weekday at minimum, doing mindful work on the course.
  • Check in with the course at least twice a day to read email, course announcements, and CampusWire posts. Not reading announcements or emails is not an option!
  • Check in with the calendar daily to maintain awareness of upcoming events and due dates.
  • Engage throughout the week on CampusWire by posting and commenting.
  • Start early and work at a moderate pace on all course assignments.
  • Ask questions about anything that you don’t fully understand.
You can’t perform that action at this time.
