o ONLINE LEARNING ACTIVITIES: Many students find the PLATO (or BuzMath, where available)
online activities to be a good place to get started on a given lesson, since …
▫ The PLATO Tutorials (or BuzMath Discussions/Demonstrations [where available]) generally
present a good introduction to the critical concepts and skills.
▫ The PLATO Applications (or BuzMath Guided Practices & Independent Practices [where
available]) provide a fair amount of reinforcement and practice.
▫ And the BuzMath Self Checks [where available] are a good measure of how well you
have learned the material and what things you still need to work on, if any.
▫ You are STRONGLY ENCOURAGED to take advantage of these online resources; however,
the main thing is that you be able to demonstrate that you have learned the required
concepts and skills by passing a written Cumulative Evaluation with at least 70%.
o LESSON REVIEW: Complete the Subunit A1 Practice Evaluation(s)
