Welcome to FALL Quarter 2018

Hello and Welcome to FALL Quarter!

Follow the links on the right side of this page to access websites that may be used in your course. Additional information about course policies, grading, etc., is listed on the At A Glance document sent in the Week #0 email to the class before the class starts.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Some email messages will be sent to the email address you have listed in MyPortal the campus online admissions and records database. Please be sure that it is currently correct so that you don't miss important email messages related to your course.

I will give you a demonstration about using your course website on the first day of classes. If you are enrolled in an online class, a link to an introductory video about the class will be provided in the Week #0 sent to the class before the class begins (usually sometime on Friday before the quarter starts the following Monday).

That's all for now. Good luck and welcome to the course!

Foothill College Library now has a new resource called Films on Demand, which covers an array of subjects, including Mathematics! Here you will find streaming video demonstrations of, for example, Linear Equations, Quadratic Functions, and applications of Geometry and more. There are also TED Talks on a variety of interesting topics, including African Fractalsby Ron Eglash, A Formula for Changing Math Education by Arthur Benjamin, and even one by Robert Lang (creator of the last week's Google-Doodle honoring Origami) entitled: Idea + Square = Origami.

If you want to share with your class any of these videos, please feel free to, as our license includes public performance rights.
