Hints and Tips
- Start early, when each set opens.
- Do the example set (homework0). It's easy & will help
you with the homework system.
- Don't submit partial answers. You have six
submissions per problem.
- Work the problems out by hand before entering them in
the system. You can get a hardcopy of a problem set from the
problem listing page of a problem set.
- Always preview your answers before submitting
them.
- Use calculator syntax:
- Carefully parenthesize. Type
cos(2pi)
,e^(-ln(3))
, or1/(1+x)
, notcos 2pi
,e^-ln3
or1/1+x
. Note thatsin2x
is read assin(2)*x
, which is probably not what you want. Entersin(2x)
instead.
- The square root is
sqrt(x)
orx^(1/2)
.
- Carefully parenthesize. Type
- Watch your case:
X
is different fromx
,Sin
is different fromsin
, andPi
is different frompi
. You wantpi
.
