    WebWork Orientation

    Due Tuesday 9/6 at 5pm: Available through WeBWorK

    WW 1 and PS 1

    WW 1, due Thursday 9/8: Available through WeBWorK

    PS 1, due Friday 9/9: Individual Assignment

    Section 0.1: 60, 76
    Section 0.2: 4
    Section 0.3: 14, 36
    For #36, use technology if you like to graph the given function, then use what you know about inverse functions to sketch the inverse.
    Section 0.4: 20, 56
    Section 0.5: 24

    Note: Most of this should be review, although some of it may appear in different form from what you're used to.


    Due Monday 9/12 - at 8am: Available through WeBWorK; the four assessments (Arithmetic, Algebra, Functions and Graphs, and Trigonometry) are at the bottom of the list, below the regular assigngments.

    Note: The purpose of the assessments is to determine what, if anything, you may need to review in the first couple of weeks to help you get the most out of the course. To that end, these problems should be done completely on your own, without talking to anyone. Your first attempt at each one should be done by 8am Wednesday morning; if there are any that you do not pass, I have some links on my OnCourse page under Additional Material that you may find useful; also, you can bring a print-out of the version you attempted to me or to the tutors to discuss, and then you can take another version ...however many times you need to, as long as they are finally passed by September 17. Every attempt should be done on your own, however.

    Also note: Each assessment does have a time limit; for the longer ones, it's 30 minutes, for the shorter ones, 10-15 minutes.

    Another note: Each attempt you make will show up in the WeBWorK assignment list. WeBWorK will let you open an attempt and change your answers, but (unlike a homework assignment) your score wont' change this way. For the assessments, you need to take a completely new version with each attempt by clicking on "Take Assessment-(topic) test".

    Final note: The assessments are not tests, WeBWorK just calls adds the word "test" to any assignment of this type.

    WW 2 and PS 2

    WW 2, due Wednesday 9/14: Available through WeBWorK
    Remember: I postponed problems 17 through 20 on WW 1. On WW 2, they appear as problems 1-4. If you got full credit for problem 17, you do not need to do 1 on WW 2. If you got full credit for 18, you do not need to do 2 on WW 2 ... etc
