    Jesse's Bio:
    I graduated in 2015 with a B.S. in Exercise Physiology and am now in the Doctorate of Physical Therapy program here at CSS. I played on the baseball team at CSS for four years. I was also a statistics tutor and currently work as personal care assistant in Duluth. I love the outdoors, hunting fishing, hiking, etc. While being at St. Scholastica I have noticed the “family” atmosphere and I am truly enjoying every second of it.

Online Math Class

Hey everyone!

First off, I hope everyone’s’ summer is going really well! I apologize I haven’t posted in so long. I have been working full time for a landscaping company that does all of the landscaping around State Farm buildings in Bloomington, IL. It has gone really great but the days are long and tiresome out in the sun. I work full time Monday-Friday, 40 hour weeks. Not to mention with baseball on the side and summer workouts, my schedule has been pretty busy. My main focus up until July 7 had been my online math class I was taking through St. Scholastica.

For those of you who are thinking about taking online courses in college, I completely recommend them. I will warn you that these courses aren’t designed so you can slack off and still get a good grade. They take a lot of time like a regular class would. For my math class we had…

-4 to 5 homework assignments per week consisting of 10-20 questions

-Minimum 3 discussion posts, 1 answering the topic, and 2 responding to two other posts

-Reading assessments, 5 questions for each section (5 sections a week  x 5 reading assessments = 25 questions)

– A test most every week (usually we had a test every week but sometimes we had off weekends because chapters were too big).  The test was timed, but there was plenty of time to finish, and the tests were usually 25-35 questions.

My math course took 7 weeks to complete and once I got the hang of the course it became relatively easy, as long as I stayed on top of my work. In case any of you would like to take the class I took, which was College Algebra, my instructor was Professor Donna Kirk. She was extremely helpful, especially since this was my first online course.  She was always checking her e-mail and responding to my questions and concerns.

I think online classes are great all in all, but should be taken seriously because you’ll find out they aren’t a walk in the park!

I’m getting anxious to get back up north for my sophomore year!
