Hints and Tips
- Start early, when each set opens.
- Do 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
problm listing page of a problem set.
- 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)
. - Be accurate: the system demands four or five significant figures in your answers! Thus if the answer is pi, the answer 3.14159 will almost certainly be marked right, but the answer 3.14 will not.
- Carefully parenthesize. Type
- Watch your case:
X
is different fromx
,Sin
is different fromsin
, andPi
is different frompi
. You wantpi
.
Important Info
- Your username for the web homework is your
uniqname. Your password is the same as the
Kerberos password that you use to work with other on-line
applications at the University.
- Due dates for the web homework are
on the problem set listing you get when you log in.
- Help on the homework is available from your
GSI or your instructor, the
SLC, and possibly the math lab consultants
(SITCS; in B728 East Hall). You can also get help by clicking the
"e-mail instructor"
button in the homework.
- Late questions (e.g., e-mailed questions
asked the day an assignment is due) are not guaranteed to be
answered.
- You can practice the homework problems after the due
date.
