Blackboard Learn as a class-management tool. You can access it through FlashLine, or directly at https://learn.kent.edu/.

 

 

Information on Textbooks and Educational Software

 

Textbook Orders. Every semester, the Mathematics Coordinator usually orders textbooks for all sections of lower-division courses. Instructors should themselves place their orders for upper-division courses at FacultyEnlight.com. Desk copies can be ordered while placing orders for textbooks. FacultyEnlight.com is also where you can search for any books, adopted or not. At the KSU Bookstore Website, you can search for the textbooks that have been adopted.

 

Publishers. Contact book representatives to order desk copies.

 

CourseSmart for Instructors. Create your account, search for a textbook, and request online access to it. You will get access when the publisher gives approval.

 

MyLabsPlus (MLP) is a web-based software which we use in several courses. Here are the links to some MLP documents written by Dr. Bev Reed:
- Student Access
- New Temporary Student Access
- Faculty Access

 

WebAssign is the web-based software which we use in the calculus sequence.

Kent Core Learning Outcomes Assessment

Every semester, the Department of Mathematical Sciences assesses the successfulness of its Kent Core courses by analyzing the results on the finals in all sections taught on the eight campuses of Kent State University. The analysis is based on the existing Learning Outcomes for these courses. In order to enable this assessment, a report has to be submitted after the semester ends for each section of the following courses: MATH 10771, 10772, 10774, 10775, 11008, 11009, 11010, 11012, 11022, 12002, 12011, 12012, 14001, 14002 (10041 is not included here because it is handled separately by the course coordinator). At Kent State University at Stark, we us a form which is prepared in MS Word. The Department is no longer asking for copies of the finals.

·         Please download the form here, complete it, and save it naming the file as follows: semester_course#_section#.pdf, for example, F15_11022_650.docx.

·         E-mail the completed form to the Stark Mathematics Coordinator.
