Frequently Asked Questions about Online and Hybrid Mathematics Courses

What math courses are run online during the summer?

•    MA005 – Preparatory Mathematics
•    MA095 – Intermediate Algebra

When do courses run?

MA 005 and MA 095 run on a seven-week session that begins three weeks into our Summer Session III. This year, these courses begin on Monday, June 17, 2019 and end on Friday, August 2, 2019.


How do I get started?

Instructors get course materials posted online ahead of time, and will email students about a week before the class begins with specific instructions on how to access the materials. The basic point of access for all courses is out online platform NUoodle ( Once you are officially enrolled in an online course, you will be given logon credentials with which you can access NUoodle. When you are able to log on to NUoodle, you will see a link to your course. MA 005 and MA 095 also use an additional platform for extra cost (see below).


Are there any additional costs?

YES. For MA 005 and MA 095, students are required to purchase access to MyMathLab (Pearson), the platform students in those courses will use to complete all homework, quizzes, and tests. Students should purchase a MyMathLab Course Compass Standalone Code (ISBN 9780321757371). Students will receive the proper course ID from their professor into which they should enroll. Once enrolled, the student will have access to an electronic copy of their textbook, as well as all assignments for their respective course. The cost of the MyMathLab access code is about $130 through Pearson in purchased while enrolling in a MyMathLab course.


So "online" means "totally self-paced," right?

Not quite. While there is no set time of day students have to read lessons for their course, each online course has its own benchmarks and deadlines. Some deadlines are strict and others are more relaxed. Students should consult with their professors and with postings on NUoodle to stay apprised of assignments and deadlines.

It has been estimated that both MA 005 and MA 095 require roughly 18 hours per week of study time

What if I need help in my course?

The first thing to do is contact your instructor. Each professor will have their direct contact information in their syllabus which will be posted on NUoodle and/or MyMathLab. If you need additional help, you can make an appointment for online tutoring with our Academic Achievement Center. There is a signup block in your NUoodle course and there are also instructions attached.
