Making Math Real Distance Learning Class Time Policies

Attendance & Grading Policy:  Full online course attendance is required in order to successfully pass a course and receive optional academic credit for the course (if optional academic units are provided for the course and are purchased through CSUEB Continuing Education). There are NO make-ups under any circumstances for missed days during a Making Math Real course. If you miss more than half a day for any 2-day, 3-day or 4-day course, 1 or more days for any 5-day or 6-day course, or 2 or more days for any 10-day or 12-day course, you will not successfully pass (complete) the course. Course participants may request a “proof of attendance” certificate from the Making Math Real Institute office after a course has been successfully passed/completed by emailing info@makingmathreal.org.

Computer Laptop Use Policy & Audio/Video Recording Policies: For the benefit, safety and privacy of all course participants, Making Math Real does NOT allow for any audio or video recording or photography/screenshots of any kind during courses or presentations. Laptop computers and iPads/tablets will be utilized during distance learning/online class instruction and for note-taking purposes ONLY.  During all distance learning courses, there are no black screens: Participants may not disable their laptop/computer’s camera when instruction is in progress.  Disabling the laptop/computer’s camera during instruction may result in said participant receiving an incomplete or not passing the course. All other electronic devices and cameras, including but not limited to cell phones, smart watches, digital cameras and recording pens are strictly prohibited during class instruction, and must be turned off and stored away during all course instruction time. Course participants may access their cell phones during regularly scheduled breaks and lunch. Any participant who violates this policy and uses their technology device to record will be required to delete the recorded content and be immediately and permanently removed from the course (future course privileges may also be revoked). Violators are not eligible for refunds of any kind and will receive an incomplete in the course. [revised Jan. 16, 2019]

Participants may check phones for texts and return calls during regularly scheduled breaks and lunch. All cell phones must be turned off and stored away during course instruction. 

Course Content Policy:  Due to the large amount of information that each course provides within a limited amount of time as well as variability in different group’s processing rates, course content may be modified at the discretion of the instructor.

Distance Learning refund/payment policy:  Course cancellations and/or transfer requests by enrolled participants must be received in writing 3 business days BEFORE each scheduled course starting date, and are subject to a $50 refund processing fee. Cancellations received less than 3 business days prior to a class will NOT be refunded. There are absolutely no refunds once a course has begun or has been attended.
