What you can expect from your TERM course.
Mathematical content instruction and homework is delivered via the web-based software MyMathLab, which includes an e-text (no need to purchase a textbook), video instruction, homework exercises, and tests.
Interactive Group Instruction
Each class meets one day a week in a classroom with an instructor. The first part of the class time is devoted to interactive group instruction designed to help students find success in learning mathematics. The remaining class time is for individual work and consultations with the instructor. Students also benefit from forming study teams and working collaboratively.
Instead of meeting for two additional class periods each week, students work in the Hub – a computer lab specifically serving TERM students. Tutors and instructors provide personalized assistance as students study and learn math. Students may need to use tutoring assistance beyond the required Hub time to complete one module each week. Students learn better by discussing mathematics with a classmate, tutor and/or instructor.
Students are provided with three attempts to pass (at 70%) each module quiz and comprehensive test. Quizzes and tests are taken in the Hub Testing Centers. A Wildcard ID is needed to use the Hub Testing Center. Final exam week is reserved strictly for final exam testing.
Students have the option of testing out of a module instead of doing the homework and quiz for the module. This is a great benefit for students who place in developmental math courses, but already know some of the concepts. Click Here for more information.
Free Math Credit
To pass the course, students must demonstrate mastery of the 10 modules by passing the module quizzes, comprehensive tests, and final exam. Each course is completed in one semester. However, the individualized structure of TERM allows students to work ahead of schedule. A student can complete two (or three) courses in one semester and does not have to pay tuition for the second (or third) courses completed within one semester.
