Melody "Melody" Summers

My name is Melody Summers and I have been a professor in the Mathematics and Computer Science Department at Mt. SAC since 2006.  I would like to give you a small glimpse of my online class structure, so that you know what to expect in my class.

 

In my Spring 2021 Math 140 + Math 14 class: This is a corequisite class, which means there is an extra 2 unit portion designed to give extra support in various aspects of the class. We will be using Canvas courses for both Math 140 and Math 14.

My class is synchronous, which means we will meet on Zoom: Tuesday, Thursday. A working webcam is required, and you are expected to participate via Zoom Chat, Speaking. Lecture recordings will be posted. Lecture notes will not be posted. Access to a physical or digital copy of the textbook is required. A digital copy of the textbook can be accessed through ALEKS. Homework assignments will be in the form of Discussion Threads, Worksheets, Textbook Problems. Homework assignments will generally be due Sunday. All exams will be in the form of PDF Uploads, Canvas Quizzes. Only scientific calculators are allowed on the exams (no graphing calculators or apps). Proctorio will be used during exams to prevent web searches and record video and sound. Exams will be conducted during class time.

In my Spring 2021 Math 71 class:

My class is a combination of synchronous and asynchronous learning, which means we will meet on Zoom on Exam Days, and you will work independently the rest of the time. Professor's Lecture Videos will be provided on Canvas before the semester begins. Chapter quizzes will be released at 8am on a Monday or Wednesday and due by midnight the same day. Access to a physical or digital copy of the textbook is required. Homework assignments will be in the form of Discussion Threads, Textbook Problems. Homework is not collected, but the chapter quizzes are problems directly taken from the homework. All exams will be in the form of PDF Uploads, Canvas Quizzes. Only scientific calculators are allowed on the exams (no graphing calculators or apps). Proctorio will be used during exams to prevent web searches and to record sound and video. The exams will be conducted on Zoom during class time.
