    6. Question: There seems to be a lot of assignments, and a lot of objectives we have to meet. Is this normal for this class?
    Answer: All Basic Math II classes, whether online or face-to-face, have to meet designated objectives. Students in a regular classroom are getting the same reading and homework assignments. You do have extra work, in terms of discussion postings, but students of online classes should expect to spend more time on their classwork than those in regular classes. On the bright side, you have access to online videos and math aids that might not be available to you in a regular classroom.
    7. Question: I have always hated group work in the past, because I always wind up doing all of the work. What can I do if a group member is not doing his or her work?
    Answer: You can do two things. One: You can indicate that the student has not worked via the rubric assessment for that team member.
    Two: If this becomes a chronic problem, you can email me about the issue at rsj5@uakron.edu .
