Before you begin your course, please read the student handbook. It contains valuable information about our policies and procedures. If you have taken an online course with IU High School before, either on the old Dragon system or IU's Oncourse system, you will find that many procedures, including those for processing assignments, applying for exams, and checking on grades, have changed with the adoption of Canvas.
This course is an online version of the original print version of Math 42P. The majority of the content of the course consists of PDF files taken directly from the source of the paper-based version. You are free to download and print the PDF files, or simply read the contents on your computer or other device. We have attempted to remove from the PDF files all references specifically applicable to the print version, but be aware that some such references may remain. If any such references cause any confusion, please contact the instructor. You should especially ignore all references to "submission forms", "assignment cover sheets", and "mailing" assignments. All assignments will be scanned and submited electronically.
Unless otherwise specified, all exams are still proctored. Refer to the exam tips lessons and the student handbook for specific information about arranging to take your examinations.
A scientific calculator is required for this course. It is acceptable to use a graphing calculator to help you work through the lessons. However, graphing calculators are not allowed on the exams. You will also need pencils, notebook paper, and graph paper. Finally, in order to be able to scan and submit your assignments, you will need access to a scanner.
