    Correct Answer
    B. 39 and 49, respectively
    Explanation

Therefore, the overall units required in the major is 49.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True

    [OM-SY-1] Based on the syllabus, if someone is in one of my current classes, what is the best method to communicate with me?

    • A.

      Email only

    • B.

      Private Messages Only

    • C.

      Email or Private Message

    • D.

      Voicemail

    Correct Answer
    B. Private Messages Only
    Explanation
    Private Messages in ETUDES is best, since I am able to keep track of your messages. I receive too much email, most of it junk, which increases the likelihood of your message getting lost. Voicemail is not good either, since I only check messages a couple of times a week. Private Messages is the default communication method, if you are in any of my current classes.

  • 7. 

    [OM-SY-6] The minimum hours per week required for this class (5 units), during the regular quarter is 15 hours (3hrs per unit: 1hr of "lecture" + 2 hrs of "homework").

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    5 quarter units for a class = 5 hours of lecture (or reading) and 10 hours for homework per week.

    In a summer session, the 15 total hours double to 30.

    Make sure you have enough enough hours in the week to complete all the tasks, including non-graded and graded (deliverables) work. Othewise, it is highly suggested that you consider taking the class in a future term, when you do have the time.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    [OM-SY-7] If you decide to withdraw the class with a "W" reflected in your transcript, by which week do you need to drop the class?

    • A.

      2nd week (1st week in summer session)

    • B.

      4th week (2 week in summer session)

    • C.

      8th week (3rd week in summer session)

    • D.

      Anytime during the term.

    Correct Answer
    C. 8th week (3rd week in summer session)
    Explanation
    Only you can drop or withdraw from the class. After 75% of the course has elapsed (week 8 in a regular 12 week term), you will not be allowed to withdraw and instructors are not able to do so either.

    Make sure to always drop/withdraw from the class officially with the college.

    Otherwise, if you stop coming to class without dropping/withdrawing, you will earn whatever grade you would have accumulated by the time you attending coming to class - usually a FAILING grade.

    Rate this question:

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer

    • B.

      False

    Use your "lowest scores" drops strategically, save them for when you truly need them due to possible personal or technical issues.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    [OM-SY-11] When you submit work containing UNSUPPORTED* figures, a heavy penalty will be applied - even if the answer is correct. *support is showing how you derived a number (calculation in parantheses or referenced to another document). note: only applies for work that requires and allows for support (e.g. excel submissions, if any).

    [OM-SY-12] Based on the syllabus, teams are defined as 2-5 persons*, and 1 submission per team? Hint: Answer True

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Syllabus Section SY6 provides you with a general definition of what constitutes a team. However, at times, I override this general rule with a more specific definition, which will be reflected in the instructions to each specific project option - in the class DASHBOARD.

    Only 1 submission per team, credit given to names on title or cover page. Each person in team will receive the earned score on the submission.

    Note: each team member will receive the same score, unless the contribution rank, as shown on the title/cover page indicates a 50% or 100% reduction. More detail in announcement, later in term.

    A minimum of 30% reduction to score earned, if student submits team work individually.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    ALL work officially runs from Monday through Friday (12 noon). All work should be front-loaded to the early part of the week to then have enough time to ask for and get help (from both instructor, assistants, and classmates) before the weekend.

    The deadlines that fall on weekends are for the convenience of those who may find them useful. But please DO NOT rely on help during weekends.

    Announcements are a way for the instructor to communicate important information or updates to the entire class.

This method ensures that all students receive the same information at the same time, making it an efficient way to keep everyone informed.

    Rate this question:

  • 19. 

    [OM-TL-3] The best way to determine what is due and when. 1) Review the Class Calendar in your syllabus (at least once per week, preferably on first day of each week) 2) Review the listing of deliverables for the week in the WEEKLY AGENDA announcement, which I usually send it out on Monday morning (I copy and paste the listing from the class calendar). Note that the dates on ATS or MAL/CNow/WPlus may not be the same. I sometimes extend the dates there to allow for flexibility in submitting beyond the actual due date on the class calendar. The Class Calendar is the controlling document with respect to due dates.
