The Syllabus contains a list of the recorded activities which you are asked to
Your Gradebook is in Blackboard and displays all of the scores you have received
on recorded activities, whether graded by computer or by your instructors. If
you ever have a problem or dispute with an entry in your gradebook, please get
in touch with your instructor or TA immediately.
The README page contains up-to-date announcements as well as policy statements specific to your section.
The Glossary contains short definitions of terms from CalculusQuestTM, differentiation and
trigonometric formulas, a few historical tidbits, and other information which can be presented in a concise format and to
which you might want to refer while reading a Lesson page. Glossary items will appear in separate windows which can be kept
on-screen for reference.
The Field Guide to Functions.
The Field Guide is a ready reference to the elementary properties of the functions used and studied in CalculusQuest
TM. The link on this page takes you to the Field Guide hub so that you may refer to it at any
Objectives and Criteria.
The link takes you to a listing of the objectives -- your learning goals -- and criteria -- the means by which you
demonstrate mastery of the objectives -- around which CalculusQuestTM was designed. If we
keep our goals in mind we will have an easier time of staying on track and ultimately of achieving them.
The Communication Center.
The communication center is in Blackboard and is where you go when you want
to (or are asked to) interact via the internet and web with other students in
your class. It contains means to send email to your instructors and to other students
in your class, and it contains links to the Discussion Board for the discussion
of class material. The material on the communications page depends on your
instructor and hence your section.
The help pages tell you where to go for help setting up your computer, for help with your institution's registration system,
and for other help external to the content and delivery of CalculusQuestTM.
This is the on-line version of the First Aid section of your Guide. It is meant to help you out with the many technical
problems which could crop up, ranging from wierd looking pages to error messages from the server. CalculusQuest
TM makes use of emerging technology which does not always work the way it is supposed to work,
and when it breaks down, this is the place to look (assuming you can still get there).
