WLL Courses - Math Emporium

WLL courses are enhanced versions of online courses (WTX and WEB). Students enrolled in WLL courses will be required to attend a 1 hour class meeting every week and to spend a minimum of 3 hours per week in a Math Emporium Lab working on online learning assignments. See our Courses page to see a description of the various formats we offer.

The goal of the weekly class meeting is to expand the students' understanding of selected course topics through problem solving, group work, and other pedagogical methods. The weekly meetings cannot cover all the material the students need to know, and, as with online courses each student is in charge of his or her own learning and must accept responsibility for spending time independently working on the course assignments, collaborating with classmates when appropriate, and seeking assistance when needed. In addition to the 1 hour class meeting spent specifically with the course instructor, the 3 hours students are required to spend in a Math Emporium Lab working on online mathematics assignments will be facilitated by teaching assistants specifically trained to assist students enrolled in WLL courses. Midterm exams will be given during the scheduled class time and students will take the final exam during the common final exam time for mathematics courses.
