Important Things You Should Know About This Course:
1. This course is not the workshop.
2. This course is not a prerequisite for any other math class (not 124, not 126, not 128, not 129, not 150, not 155, and not anything higher). 3. Every student must be enrolled in a lecture class that meets on Tuesdays and Thursdays AND a lab class that meets on Wednesdays in order to receive credit for the course. 4. This is not a “basic mathematics” (addition, multiplication, etc.) course – we will study real, useful ideas. 5. In a large class like this one it is especially important that you understand and follow all of the course policies, and take responsibility for your own coursework.

eCampus: In this course, all laboratory assignments will be completed online, using the eCampus course management system. In order to access the course and labs, you must do the following. 1. Go to https://ecampus.wvu.edu/
2. Login using the same username as you use for MIX (the part before the @ in your MIX e-mail address). 3. The password is the same as your MIX password. Sometimes it is a 6 digit number. The first 2 digits are the day of the month you were born, and the next 4 digits are the last 4 digits of your student ID number. So if your birthday is November 9 and your student ID number ends in 6745, then your password would be “096745.” (Note: If you have changed your password in MIX, use the new password instead of the one described above.) 4.
