This course is presented in two semesters covering 30 lessons and submissions, two midterms, and two semester exams. Semester One consists of lessons 1-16, and Semester Two consists of lessons 17-30.

The lessons walk you through example problems, step-by-step, to prepare you for the submissions that follow. Important vocabulary is shown in blue bold type, and formulas and definitions are given throughout. It is important that the student create a notebook or formula card on which to write vocabulary and formula to remember.

The submissions consist of a number of multiple choice questions that test the material covered in the lessons. Some submissions may contain short answer

questions as well. The midterm exams draw on questions covered thus far in the submissions, and the finals do the same.
