This course will be available both in a traditional classroom setting at the University of Calgary campus and over the internet for those who are unable to come to Calgary.
The instructors will post by e-mail a schedule of assignments for each section of the textbook. Students will send their work by e-mail to the instructors. All work received by the due date for each assignment will be corrected and returned to the student by e-mail. After the due date answer guides will be posted for all assignments so that students can correct any work that the instructors do not. Test and quizzes will be sent out at specific, pre-scheduled times to be completed (open-book) and turned in by e-mail within a specified period.
At fixed times during the week the instructors will be sitting by their computers for electronic office hours. At these times students can send queries to an instructor and be assured of a rapid response. Questions received from students at other times will also be responded to as soon as possible.
Students wishing to take the course by internet are responsible for arranging, maintaining, and paying for internet access with a local internet provider in their area. Students are also responsible for learning how to perform basic e-mail operations that will be necessary for their participation in the course, including how to compose, edit, save, print, send, receive and reply to e-mail messages.
