BB 350 Schedule, Ecampus Spring Term, 2013

This is the Web page for the BB 350 ecampus class. Web pages for the BB 350 classroom class are NOT the same and are not appropriate for the ecampus class. Figures for the lectures are available on the Blackboard site (http://my.oregonstate.edu/) for the course under Course Documents. The syllabus is require reading for this course. You can download it HERE.

IMPORTANT NOTE TO BB 350 CLASSROOM STUDENTS - You are on the wrong page. This is the Schedule Page for the ecampus course and it has a different exam schedule, and different exams from the classroom class.

This class uses a 100% free electronic textbook written by Kevin Ahern and Indira Rajagopal. You can download it HERE. If you prefer a traditional textbook, you can get a copy of Campbell and Farrell from the OSU Bookstore for a lot of dollars. That textbook is NOT required.

In the lecture videos, you will see many Metabolic Melodies sung in class. You can see all of them HERE and download many recordings as well.

Please note that the exam format in BB 350 ecampus is a simple multiple choice format. It is different than the format used in the classroom course. Since I only provide old exams to show the format, I do not provide old exams for ecampus. Neither do I recommend using old exams as study guides as I think they throw students off when material changes from one quarter to the next.

Exam 1

This exam must be started and completed within a window that begins on April 17 at 8:00 a.m. U.S. Pacific time and ends at 5:00 p.m. U.S. Pacific time on April 19.

You may use a simple calculator, but no other material. The exam is structured so you will not actually need the calculator.

In the videos posted above, you will note that the classroom students opted to do a non-comprehensive final without notecards instead of a comprehensive final with notecards. The average on the final exam dropped over 12 points compared to the other exams. Student in this ecampus course will take a final exam and will be able to use a notecard, as described below.

Comprehensive Final Exam

This exam must be started and completed within a window that begins on June 10 at 8:00 a.m. U.S. Pacific time and ends at 5:00 p.m. U.S. Pacific time on June 12.

You may use a simple calculator. On this exam ONLY, you are allowed to bring and use one 5x8 inch notecard with hand-filled notes (both sides). Everything on the card must be handwritten by you - no figures pasted on or anything taped to the card. You do not need to get the card from me.
