Google Hangouts and more!

Greetings students.  We had our first Google+ Hangout last night, but unfortunately only two of you showed up!

If you haven't already done so, please complete the following tasks this week:

  • Get yourself a headset and microphone to use for the hangout
  • Download and install the latest Google+ Hangout App or Plug-in (for smart phone, tablet and/or desktop computer)
  • Create a Google+ Account
  • Add me (Sue Petrey) to your circles (any circle except 'following') so that I can invite you to the next Hangout!
The two students who showed up to our first Hangout will receive 10 points on Quiz 3 and 10 points on Assignment 3 tonight!  Thanks Fabi and Patrick!

Also, if you haven't already done so, please click tab > College Algebra - Summer 1 - 2013 at the top of this page to see the materials and answer keys for your class.  You should check this page regularly for updates and to correct assignments (and submit if applicable).

I will announce in class tonight the date of our first test and the night for our next hangout!  See you soon!

Google Hangouts for CTC College Algebra 2013!


We will be meeting online several times over the course of the summer.  To facilitate these online meetings we will be using Google+ Hangouts.  Before the second class meeting, you should do each of the following:

After our second class meeting, I will announce a time for our first 'trial' hangout.  Because the first hangout will be a learning experience for many, there will be no penalty for those who are unable to successfully participate, however, there will be hangouts in the future where participation will be mandatory.

This class normally requires an online lab in addition to the face-to-face meetings, these online meetings are in place of this additional lab requirement.  We may also have 1 or more actual class meetings online (instead of the regular face-to-face).  All hangouts will be announced in class and on this website.

If you have any questions or need to contact me, feel free to send an email at any time.

I hope your Summer class experience is a positive one!  Glad you decided to take this class!
