• Identify and express concepts, terms, and facts related to a specific discipline.
• Identify, interpret, and evaluate pertinent data and previous experience to reach conclusions.
• Apply successful organizational strategies of planning, goal setting, prioritizing, resolving conflict,
and managing time to specific goals and/or projects.
• Interpret information and reasoning expressed mathematically (for example in spreadsheets,
diagrams, charts, formulas, etc.).
• Communicate mathematical information effectively.
• Demonstrate an understanding of fundamental scientific concepts.
Communication: Email and Canvas
Because electronic mail and Canvas are vital tools of communication, students must form the habit of
checking both frequently.
As an SVC student, you have a college email account. You must use this email address for all college
Students can expect email responses from the instructor during regular weekday work hours (Monday to
Friday, 9 am to 5 pm).
Given the increasing volume of email, the message deserves particular attention:
• include the class number (e.g. 146) or name (e.g. Excel)
• make the subject line pertinent
• be clear and concise
• include original threads where pertinent
• attach a file when necessary
Pay attention to the content of the message:
poor content:
“I read Chapter 2 of the text and am having trouble
understanding it – can you help?”
good content:
“On page 65, there is an example regarding … I do not
understand, can you give me another?”
E-Communication Policy
Clear and effective written communication is crucial to the success of any enterprise; this is acutely so in a
learning environment where there is increasing reliance on e-communication.
In addition to the rules of email etiquette to be found at:, all ecommunication must be professional in vocabulary and tone. Skagit Valley College provides a workplace
(which includes e-communication) free from discrimination and harassment of any form. Confirmed
violations of this policy will lead to corrective discipline. Negative comments about students or instructors
are unacceptable in a classroom/tutorial setting or email.
If an infraction occurs, the offender may receive a reminder of this policy or a copy of the communication
may be forwarded to: [email protected]
Best Practice
Form the habit of asking yourself:
1. Could my communication possibly be interpreted as insulting, disrespectful, sarcastic,
discriminating, mocking or rude?
2. How would I feel if the communication were directed to me?
Not all features of Canvas will be utilized in this class. Students should have a clear understanding of the
pertinent sections and take full advantage of the many benefits.
The only mandatory forum is Introductions (in the Orientation Unit). Other forums are made available for
students to interact with one another. This simulates an ‘in place’ work group experience. Just as in a
work group, I will be happy to contribute but I will enter a forum only if I am specifically invited, via
email, to do so. You will find forums for each unit. Students are responsible for downloading course
documents and taking part in discussions with classmates.

As directed in each unit.
There are 7 quizzes including the syllabus quiz. You have unlimited attempts for the syllabus quiz but
you must score 100% before proceeding to the next task.
All other quizzes have a fixed duration and may be taken twice.
Your best score will be recorded.
Quiz content is based on specific reading assignments.
Immediately after completion, you will see your answers and your score.
If, after reviewing your reading, you need clarification please contact the instructor referring to the Quiz
and question number.
There are 6 tests. Each test has a fixed duration and may be taken once. Test content is based on specific
reading assignments. Immediately after completion, you will see your answers and your score.
Labs require lots of pondering and re-working so be sure to allow enough time.
Your email submission will have the appropriate attached zipped file (containing database(s)).
e.g. The solution to Lab 01 will be named as indicated in the lab assignment and zipped into a file named (where XXX are your initials).
Lab Quizzes
The grade for the lab is the score you receive for the lab quiz. Lab quizzes are taken after you have
successfully submitted your zipped file for the respective lab and received an email confirmation. You may
take each Lab Quiz just once. The number of questions and duration for each lab quiz may vary. In each
Lab Quiz you will answer T/F questions pertaining to the respective lab. Unless you hear otherwise, your
score for the lab quiz will be your score for the lab. The only way your score will be lowered is if your
submission and quiz do not agree. You must answer the lab quiz according to what your lab
submission indicates – not sudden inspiration during the lab quiz. Failure to do so may result in a
score of zero for the assignment. Have your lab solutions available before you begin.
Final Exam
