Description

Overview:
This is an example of a redesigned course that uses the OpenStax PreCaculus Textbook. Emphasis is placed on the structure of course (which is not conics centric) and how homework is implemented. To avoid the financial responsiblity of the student or higher education institution purchasing publisher online homework services like Pearson's MyMathLab, ConnectMath or Aleks; students are assigned exercises from the textbook that have answers available. The strategy is to give access to the answers of the problems so that the students have to prove how the answer was obtained. This allows the students some immediate feedback if their written process does not obtain the solution given in the back of the textbook.This allows the student to recognize that a process, operation or strategy was carried out incorrectly which can be used to draw attention that a question needs to be raised during the next lecture or additional assistance may be required on their journey to mastery of the content.
