On your computer at home, if you didn’t enter the Course ID when you installed the software, you’ll be asked to enter it now. Your Course ID is… CuestaIMA
If connected to the internet, fill in the box with… CuestaIMA If you do not have an internet connection, choose “ No, I will not be accessing an online gradebook from this computer” * This is automatically done for you in the labs at school *
If you are working on a computer with an internet connection, you will be asked to enroll in your instructor’s gradebook by choosing their name and section and then selecting Enroll.
Select the assigned chapter and lesson from the menu. You will be taken to the Table of Contents
Each lesson has Instruct, Practice, and Certify modes.
Click on the Instruct button for access to narration and videos, example problems, and definitions.
Click on the Practice button for unlimited practice problems. You can choose the level of difficulty and get help from the Interactive Tutor.
In the Practice section, click on the Tutor button at the bottom of the page for Step-by-Step help and a worked out solution for each problem.
You can enter answers containing symbols, such as exponents and fractions, by using the Keypad located at the top left and right hand side of the screen.
Click on the Certify button to complete your homework assignment. Each assignment is mastery-based.
Mastery means: You are allowed to miss a certain number of questions and still pass. You must get about 80% of the problems correct. If you miss more than the allowed number of questions, you must start over and try again until you “master” the material. You will NOT be penalized for having to start over. You should go back to Instruct and Practice to go over the material again. The software will automatically send you back to practice to go over the problem types you were missing. When you do complete the assignment, your grade is 100%. (Make sure it’s on time - there may be late penalties.) If you do not complete your homework, your grade is a zero.
