Homework

 

The homework associated to this course will be (for the most part) an online homework.
On three occasions there will be an handwritten homework that will substitute the online one.

Each week, we will also suggest some more conceptual problems taken from our textbook.
These problems will help you understand the concepts more completely and are often motivated by problems from the Life Sciences.
We will not collect these assignments. We will provide solutions to the problems that you can check against yours.

The online homework (WeBWorK) can be accessed through the following website

https://webwork.as.uky.edu/webwork2/MA137F17/

Your username is your Link Blue user ID (use capital letters!) and your password is your 8 digit student ID number.

With the online assignments you can try (most) problems as many times as you like. The system will tell you if your answer is correct or not. There is also a way to email the TA a question from each of the problem. We encourage you to use this system for online homework questions since it provides the TA with additional information about the problem you are working on. Please keep in mind that you will not get an instantaneous response to your email questions. We will always do our best to respond within 24 hours and you will probably get a faster response if you email during normal business hours. (Don't wait until the last minute!) Also remember that more specific questions will get more informative responses from us.
