Hi class,

This semester we’ll be using a courseware called Knewton's alta in lieu of a traditional textbook and homework.

Alta works by recommending the best instruction according to each student’s learning needs, as well as providing personalized assessments. It’s web-based and mobile-friendly, so you can use it whenever and wherever you need.

When you log into [your class LMS name], our learning management system (LMS), you will see the alta assignments. Please note, you must access Knewton through [your class LMS name] for your activity and grades to be recorded.

Please follow the steps for getting started with Knewton, available here:

Getting Started with Knewton for Students with an LMS

You’ll need to purchase access to alta before viewing or working on assignments. If you need help with this, please let me know.

The syllabus for this course is attached - let’s have a great semester!
