Online Resources:
Go to Online Exercises and register under our class! Be sure to log on every time you do the exercises. After homework is corrected in the 10 Steps book, see if you understand why you got things wrong, ask questions if you don't understand, then do the exercises on line. You need at least 80% on all exercises, so don't do them before you've checked your homework! If you get less than 70% the first time, seek help before trying a second time!
