Welcome to the web for
Prof. Sally Keely's mathematics online classes
at Clark College in Vancouver Washington!

In solidarity with BIPOC, LGBTQIA2S+, and marginalized
student communities, I stand committed to fighting
systemic racism and bias, and advancing JEDI
(justice, equity, diversity, inclusion) in higher education.
I value you as you are and truly welcome you in class:)

ABOUT Professor Sally Keely, M.S.

Dedicated to education in the PNW for almost 40 years, I have taught asynchronous online STEM courses since 1999. I currently teach Algebra, Geometry, Statistics, Precalculus, Trigonometry, Calculus, and DE each designed around active student-centered learning. I am honoured to have been able to teach about 340 online mathematics classes with students on every continent including Antarctica. Join me on an ed-venture!

This little video speaks to me. I think it tells two good lessons for online learning: (1) collaborating improves the group experience, and (2) we are better together than individually (even when together only virtually). Enjoy!

CLASS OVERVIEW

My classes are fully-online conducted asynchronously in Canvas with support from an online digital learning platform (eg. MyMathLab, Knewton Alta, WebAssign). They are NOT "remote learning" format, thus have no real-time class meetings (ie. NO Zoom). You will "go to class" in Canvas. The modules in Canvas will guide you through the weekly requirements and content including linking to the e-textbook, video tutorials, mini-lectures and examples, practice problems, assignments, and tests.


MANDATORY CLASS ORIENTATION REQUIREMENTS

The MANDATORY CLASS ORIENTATION is held in your Canvas online classroom on the first two days of the term. Failure to complete either of these Day #1-2 requirements properly and on time will result in your being no-show dropped from class.

Day #1: Monday
Before 11:59 pm (PT) on the first day of the quarter:

REQUIRED: Login to Canvas and enter your math class to secure your day one attendance.

RECOMMENDED: Familiarize yourself with the class layout. Take note of the items in the "Start Here" orientation module. Read the Syllabus.

By the end of day #2: Tuesday
Before 11:59 pm (PT) on the second day of the quarter you MUST:

REQUIRED (3 pts): Complete the "Mandatory Orientation Assignment" in Canvas which is to post your introduction on the introductions discussion board (Canvas orientation module >> "Mandatory Orientation Assignment: Introduce Yourself").

Recommended follow-up (2 pts): Read other students' introductions and reply to a couple by 11:59 pm Thursday night. Maybe something you have in common? Or something that sparked your interest? Share a kindness with a classmate :)

WEEK ONE CONTENT MATTER

The first week is not only orientation days but we also start right into the content matter. Click the "Syllabi & Calendars" tab above to check-out the Class Calendar's week one deadlines.
