THE PACe PROGRAM:

OVERVIEW and LEARNING RESOURCES

The PACe Program is a mastery-based instructional program that accommodates differences in students' backgrounds, aptitudes, goals, and learning styles. The one-credit courses MATH 117, MATH 118, MATH 124, MATH 125 and MATH 126 are taught in the PACe Program. The PACe Center in the Weber Building makes individualization possible by providing "walk-in" services in its Learning and Testing Centers.

To complete a course, students must work through a carefully designed series of online video lectures, required assignments and review exams, and then demonstrate their competence on a sequence of proctored Unit Exams and Final Exam. Students are allowed to repeat proctored exams without penalty, and are encouraged to strive for a high level of competence with the course material.

All students taking PACe courses have access to a variety of learning resources. In this program, students have both the opportunity and the responsibility to choose and use those resources that are most effective for them.

The learning resources provided by the PACe Program include:

online (web based) video lectures and lecture notes (e-text purchased through the CSU Bookstore);

individual tutoring from course assistants in the PACe Learning Center (136 Weber);

detailed individual feedback about Review, Unit and Final Exam performance, including complete solutions (provided online); and

supplemental texts available for overnight checkout from the PACe Resource Desk (Weber 136).
