Discussion Questions Week 1


  • In the announcement area there should be a listing with your name and number assigned for the discussion questions.
  • If you do not see this list, email your instructor to get your assigned number.
  • Please use #40 until you receive your own number.
  • Access your textbook this way: Go to Content. Click on the week you’re working on. Scroll down to Week # Activity (then click the underlined words in the sentence, “By the due date assigned, click the “Week n ALEKS Link” to complete the activities for this week”) or Week # Quiz. A new page will open. You are now in the ALEKS system. Select the menu in the upper-left corner (it looks like three dashes). Select Textbook and then E-Book. You can also access the E-book when you are in Learning Mode (i.e. when you are working through your topics in the ALEKS Activity) by clicking on the E-Book icon to the right of any problem.
  • Please provide the questions, your answers, and show all of the steps and processes you used to solve each problem.
  • Remember to do both of the problems assigned and respond to two of your classmates’ solutions in a substantive way. You may post revisions based on your instructor’s feedback by the end of each week.
  • Be sure to meet the participation requirement by responding substantively to at least two of your classmates. You can:
    • ask a question about your classmate’s solution(s)
    • offer help when you see an error, or
    • seek help in completing your own problems.
  • Do not solve another student’s problems. Each student must be graded on his/her own work.
  • Remember that non-substantive posts such as “Good job!” or praising another student’s work will not count toward your participation score. Be sure to refer to the grading rubric.
