Teaching/Learning Methodologies:
This course supports learning by providing students with opportunities to review and activate prior knowledge (e.g. reviewing concepts related to trigonometry and geometry from prior mathematics courses) in order to gain new skills. The course further leads students toward recognizing opportunities to apply the knowledge they have gained to solve problems. This course models the use of spreadsheet software, TVM spreadsheet, and additional software like Demos® which will allow students to investigate the key concepts of the course Outside the Box. This course connects the concepts taught to realworld applications, such as exponential decay, simple harmonic motion and The Golden Ratio. With the help of examples, practice problems, and solution videos, the course models various ways to demonstrate understanding poses questions that require students to use different representations as they are working at each level of conceptual development  concrete, visual, or symbolic, and allows individual students the time they need to solidify their understanding at each conceptual stage. Through the use of interactive activities (e.g. multiple choice quizzes, and draganddrop activities) students receive instantaneous feedback and are able to selfassess their understanding of concepts. A few of the things students will be provided are the following:
 Lesson plans
 PowerPoint presentations
 Videos
 Reading Packs
 Assignment for Learning
 Assessment of Learning
 Quiz
All of these are a cluster of downloadable and embedded files that will be provided to each candidate with the progression of the course.
ELearning Approach:
Elearning is not only a training method but it is a learning method that is tailored to individuals. It is found that different terminologies have been used to define learning that takes place online which actually makes difficult to develop a generic definition.
Elearning includes the delivery of content via Internet, Intranet, and Extranet, satellite broadcast, audiovideo tape, interactive TV and CDROM. The term implies that the learner is at a distance from the tutor or instructor, that the learner uses some form of technology.
With attention to this new system of education that is spreading across the globe its imperative that the content of such study programs are enhanced and modified to serve both the learner and the instructor well whilst dealing with the gap of conventional studying methodologies. Thus the courses promise its reader an experience full of engagement, studentconcentric approach, personalization and Interaction. Using a wide array of multimedia tools, cloud based LMS and diverse repository of subject tailored audiovisual material that student can utilize and learn in a stimulated work environment where he’s in charge of his work hours.
Our elearners paddle through these courses in the mediation of skilled mentors to the finish line with understanding of their subjects application into real world problems following a futuristic model of education.
Strategies for Assessment and Evaluation of Student Performance:
Assessment is the ongoing gathering of information related to the individual student’s progress in achieving the curriculum expectations of the course. To guide the student to his/her optimum level of achievement, the teacher provides consistent and detailed feedback and guidance leading to improvement. Strategies may include:
 Diagnostic assessment
 Formative assessment
 Summative assessment
 Performance assessment
 Portfolio assessment
 Rubrics
 Checklists
