They are short and show examples on how to add/subtract/multiply/divide/... fractions and mixed numbers Videos to watch:
Almost each video link has a menu on the left with other videos and guided practices. If you want to practice  work on those guided practice exercises. Please don't forget to bring the remedial math knowledge assessment to me on Wednesday! Today we will: * review fractions and decimals, (maybe rounding, and percentages) , Chapters 14 from Textbook 3 
HW 1 (due date: Sunday, September 12^{th})  due date is changed:

08/25 W  Welcome to the course!
Our course is a corequisite course that merges remedial math topics and topics discussed in "Mathematics, A Practical Odyssey" book.
The topics from remedial math will be marked separately, here are the refereneces I will be using: Textbook 1:"Mathematics, A Practical Odyssey" by D. Johnson and T. Mowry, 8th edition CENGAGE Learning, 2014 Textbook 2: "MTH 5 Lecture Notes" by A. McInerney, available for free Textbook 3: "ARITHMETIC: A Textbook for Math 01" by A. Weaver, available for free We had only 4 students in class today, so I talked about the class structure and distributed the remedial math knowledge assessment to be brought back to me on Monday, August 30th. Those of you who were not able to attend the class, please download this file: RemedialMathEvaluation_1.pdf Things todo by our next meeting on Monday, August 30th: 1. Allocate yourselves 1 hour and 30 minutes. Work on the remedial math knowledge assessment without any help, without use of a calculator. You can print the document, put your name on top of the first page and put your answers (you can also show your work) right on it. Or you can use plain sheet of paper to put your name and answers there. If you don't know how to do a problem, write "no clue" next to it. If you run out of time, put "ran out of time" at the end. This is not for grade, I just need it to see where you stand, so don't use any help there. Just do your best. If you bring it to me and submit it to me on Monday, August 30th, I will give you 2 points towards your final grade at the end of the semester. 2. Our homeworks will be online at WeBWorK. Here is the address: https://wwm01.bcc.cuny.edu/webwork2/2021_Fall_Novak_MTH21Coreq_D01/ Visit the WeBWorK: login and check that you can see the first assignment!
