Mathematics

The assessment criteria and evaluation for each course will vary. A teacher is engaged with the students to facilitate their learning activities and is responsible for determining the assessment strategies used with their students. Students will be made aware of the assessment criteria when they are enrolled in a course.

Note: All web-based courses will require word processor software (such as Microsoft Word or Word Perfect) as well as an internet browser (such as Internet Explorer, Firefox or Safari).
