Course Materials


  • Each activity has an accompanying quiz or activity which is graded automatically.

  • Grades are entered into a gradebook which students can access at any time online.


  • Units are accessible online with provided student accounts

  • Students are expected to study each Unit and be prepared for the nightly lessons

  • This is not a "self-study" course. We will teach each unit with teacher prepared PowerPoints. Every concept in the curriculum will be reviewed by the teacher

  • Each of the Units has an accompanying quiz. Look upon the quizzes as a learning tool, rather than a measure of knowledge

  • You are encouraged to ask the teacher for help with any concepts that are giving you trouble.


  • Students are expected to come to class on time (6:00 PM)

  • If for some reason you are not able to attend class, inform the teacher

  • If you decided to drop the course, make sure you do an official drop through the College

    • It is the students responsibility to officially drop classes

    • Students who stop attending but have not officially dropped the class will receive an F grade

  • Absences & Tardiness:
    • Any student with excessive absences, late arrivals and/or early departures will be eligible to be dropped. Excessive tardiness or leaving early is defined as arriving late or leaving prior to the completion of class more than three times. Tardiness/leaving early beyond the third incident usually results in the student being dropped. If any student is in excess of 15 minutes late or leaves more than 15 minutes prior to the end of class, said student will be considered absent for the entire class period. If you are more than 15 minutes late for a test, you will not be eligible to take the test. Unavoidable absences must be cleared with the instructor via e-mail before the absence occurs.
