Welcome to the website for
Sally Keely's mathematics
classes and workshops!

Welcome mat with rainbow coloured letters.

In solidarity with BIPOC, LGBTQIA2S+, individuals with disabilities, and marginalized student communities, I stand committed to fighting systemic racism and bias, and advancing DEIJA (diversity, equity, inclusion, justice, accessibility) in higher education. I value you as you are, care about your well-being and academic success, and truly welcome you in class :)

 


This web provides information for students taking one of my workshops through my company InteGreat Education and students taking one of my summer 5-week classes at the Univ. of Phoenix. Included also are general tips for any student taking an online mathematics class.

For students taking taking one of my quarter-long classes at Clark College, Vancouver WA, this domain houses the Syllabus.

Check back in early July.

CLASS OVERVIEW

My classes are fully-online conducted asynchronously in a course management system (CMS) with support from an online digital learning platform (DLP). They are NOT "remote learning" format, thus have no real-time class meetings (i.e. NO Zoom). You will "go to class" in your CMS where modules guide you through the requirements and content including linking to the e-textbook, video tutorials, my mini-lectures and examples, resources, assignments, and assessments.

SOME INTRO FAQS:

ORIENTATION REQUIREMENTS

The class orientation takes place in your online classroom starting on the first day of class. Work though all items in the "Start Here" module posted there. The two specific mandatory orientation assignments are:

Day #1 before 11:59 pm (PT) on the first day of class:
Login to your CMS and enter your math class. Post your introduction in the "Introduce Yourself" discussion.

Day #4 before 11:59 pm (PT) on the fourth day of class:
Complete and submit the checkpoint assignment.

Failure to complete either of these two orientation requirements properly and on time will result in your being no-show dropped from class.


WEEK ONE CONTENT MATTER

The first week is not only orientation days, we also start right into the content matter. Refer to the Unit 1 module in your CMS for links to readings, content, assignments, and assessments. Watch due dates!


OTHER WEEK ONE TECHNICAL STUFF

  1. Required: Be sure you can access your official college student email account (e.g. Clark Student Email Account) required for all email communications with the professor and know how to email the professor.

  2. Required: Learn to insert an image in a discussion board post and add ALT text.

  3. Recommended: Learn to take a screenshot.

  4. Recommended: Check that your browser and Adobe Reader software are current versions.

  5. Optional: Add a photo to your online classroom profile.

  6. Optional: Follow Prof. Keely's Mathematics feed in Mastodon.

WHAT is Mathematics?
The root of mathematical study is to consider different perspectives (numerical, analytical, graphical), find patterns, and use logic and reasoning to better understand
science and nature. ~SK

WHY study Mathematics?
Thinking mathematically helps one to examine, analyze, and solve life's problems in an organized, logical manner. Understanding mathematical concepts allows us to perceive, interpret, critique, and transform the world. ~SK
