You will see that the homework associated to MA137 will be (for the most part)
an online homework. On a few 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
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.
NOTE: Given that we will have Study Hall immediately after dinner, you can work in groups on the assignments and you
can ask for help from the TAs that are present.
During the regular semester the following feature will be in place. Namely,
there is also a way to email your 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.
