Homework in Connect
There are three types of assignments in Connect. All of them have a specified due date and time, but you have unlimited time to work on each one, and they can be submitted more than once, with your best score being used towards your homework grade. DO NOT wait until the last minute to begin assignments because this may not give you enough time and you will not have the opportunity to get questions answered. The three types of assignments are:
1. Learn Smart Modules – There is one of these per chapter. You are given each question and before answering, you enter how certain you are that you know the right answer, then you answer the question. If you get it wrong, it shows you the correct answer (to help you learn it) and then later comes back to the same (or a similar) question. It keeps doing this until you have answered all the questions correctly. So if you keep working on it until it’s complete, you will have 100% for Learn Smart assignments.
2. Homework Assignments – There are several of these per chapter (about 20 total for the semester). The chapter and section(s) of the text book that the assignment comes from are given in the assignment name. Helpful tools in Connect include:
• There is a “check my work” feature that will tell you whether your answers are correct or not. If they are not correct you can try again.
• Many of them have a “View hint” feature that leads to a “Guided Example” video that works through a similar problem.
• There is an “ask my instructor a question” feature that allows you to type in a question. This feature allows me to see the question and what answers you have entered.
• There is an “ebook and resources” feature that will take you to the specific part of the text book when the given topic is covered.
Late work will not be accepted. There will be about 28 assignments on Connect during the semester. Your homework grade will be the average of your best 14. (or whatever is half of the total number of assignments on Sakai not counting the test)
