Sketchpad Lecture Material


    Consider some strategies for "Handling" the "Paper Work" in a remote live course delivered on the internet rather than Canvas, etc.

    The digital workload involves receiving, storing, grading, and returning work, and receiving and replying to messages.

    These topics will be examined:
  • Receiving work through forms pages, image capture, email submissions of
    "written work" -- jpg, gif, pdf, Word, Google Doc, HEIC
  • Types of assessments: Intro Letter, Weekly Report, quizzes, tests, connect-the-dots, exam
  • Support material for calculus I and precalculus -- the "inside back cover" of the "text" for example, Sketchpad lecture material
  • Organization and Storage facilitated by:
    Class color, Personal number, spreadsheets, and folders
