All Math Students – Assignment due Feb 7th

January 31, 2013

Math Students

It’s time to check your progress.  Each month I ask that you download a spreadsheet – enter some data about when you started and how much you have completed and also set some goals for the completion of the course you are currently in.

Below are instructions on how to complete the assignment.  If you have any questions please feel free to email me at bill.giannos@senecacollege.ca.  You can complete the assignment at home or in class this week.  Thank you.

Please go the Academic Upgrading website – http://www.aaupnv.wordpress.com

On the right hand side of the site you should see a BOX with GET FILES as the title.

Underneath GET FILES there are 3 folders – please click on HOW LONG

Inside HOW LONG are two Excel spreadsheets – GED students please download the GED version and the Academic Upgrading students please download the AU version.

Once you have downloaded them please follow the instructions on each spreadsheet.

Fill out the spreadsheets and print two copies, one for you and one for me.

Please hand in your spreadsheet by Thursday February 7th.

If you have any trouble downloading or filling out the spreadsheet please let me know.

If you are unable to come in to class another option is to email your completed spreadsheet to me at:  bill.giannos@senecacollege.ca.

If you are unable to complete the assignment at home please see me in class and I will assist you.

 

Have a great weekend.

 

Regards

Bill
