The Math Modules are one hour per week classes designed to strengthen students' fundamental mathematics skills and improve success in their mathematics courses and other courses in their program. The modules are available to first semester students in the following programs:
Chemical Production & Power Engineering Technician or Technology (CPTN or CPET) - MTH1105Electrical Power Distribution & Control Technician (PDCT) - MTH1904Electrical Techniques (ELTC) - MTH1084Electromechanical Engineering Technician (ELMT) - MTH1084General Arts and Science - Degree Preparation (PDEG) - MTH1105Instrumentation and Control Engineering Technician or Technology (ICTN or ICET) - MTH1904Power Engineering Technician or Technology (PETN or PETC) - MTH1105
For students who choose to register in a Math Module(s), their module(s) mark will replace their Mathematics Assessment score as their Test #1 mark in MTH1084/MTH1105/MTH1904, worth 10% of the final grade. See the MTH1084/MTH1105/MTH1904 course outlines for a complete evaluation breakdown. See the Mathematics Assessment page for more information about the assessment.
The Math Modules are divided into three modules that correspond with the three topics that make up the Mathematics Assessment (Computation, Algebraic Expressions, and Solving Equations). Once a student enrolls in a math module, if they "passed" any part(s) of the Math Assessment their score for the corresponding module(s) will be rounded to 100% and they will not be required to attend classes for those modules. Each module is made up of one-hour classes that run once per week for four weeks. Each class will involve a lesson and an in-class assignment. Like the math assessment, the modules are completed without a calculator. Students who enroll in a module(s) are required to attend the weekly one-hour classes for the module(s).
Module 1 - Computation: This meets in the weeks of September 11 to October 2. Module 2 - Algebraic Expressions: This meets in the weeks of October 9 to October 30. Module 3 - Solving Equations: This meets in the weeks of November 6 to November 27. Say a student scored 55%, 95%, and 50% on the Mathematics Assessment then enrolled in Module 1 and Module 3. Their score of 95% on the second part would be rounded to 100%, and they would have to attend the first and third module classes – in September and November. They would not need to attend the Module 2 classes.
Each week, a new topic is covered in the lab, with an assignment being completed and handed in by the end of the lab. There is no homework. The grade for each module is the average of the grades received on each of the four assignments in that module. Final Math Module grades (which becomes the Test #1 grade in MTH1084/MTH1105/MTH1904) will be calculated with these weights: Module 1: 33 1/3%Module 2: 33 1/3%Module 3: 33 1/3% Note: Rounding assessment scores to 100% only happens on the initial assessment, not the math modules. See the MTH1105, MTH1084, or MTH1904 course outline for a complete evaluation breakdown of marks.
To register for the Math Modules, students can use WebAdvisor. You must register for each Module separately. No additional fee will apply. Students who are registered in a Math Module after the Registration Deadline (September 19, 2017) will have waived the option to have their assessment score count toward their MTH1084/MTH1105/MTH1904 Test #1.In WebAdvisor, the modules are listed as: MATH-MODULE1 Computation MATH-MODULE2 Algebraic Expressions MATH-MODULE3 Solving Equations
NOTE: Module classes begin in the second week of class. If a student misses a lab without a valid reason, he/she will receive a zero grade for the lab (see the School of Technology Missed Evaluation Policy contained in the course outline for valid reasons). This includes labs missed due to delayed registration in the lab. (Exceptions will be granted for late-registration students on a case-by-case basis.)
