Webwork

Webwork is an online homework system developed in the Math Department at the University of Rochester and now used throughout the world. There will be weekly Webwork assignments, which may consist of up to 25 problems. Webwork homework deadlines are Friday nights at 11:59pm. Please note that extensions will only be granted in exceptional circumstances. A crowded schedule or minor illness are NOT valid reasons to ask for an extension. At most one extension per semester will be granted. If you know you will be absent from school for an extended period, inform your instructor as early as possible so arrangements can be made.

Your first Webwork assignment is due Friday, January 21.

Webwork homework counts for 20% of your total grade. No Webwork sets will be dropped. Your score at the end of the semester will be based on the number of questions you complete out of the total questions assigned. Hence, even if you are not able to complete a given assignments, be sure to complete as much of it as you can.

You are encouraged to discuss homework problems with other students. However, Webwork problems are individualized for each student and you must do your own assignment. A “Webwork TA” will be available to answer questions about Webwork homework sets until 5pm on Fridays. Questions received after 5pm may not be answered.

There is a button on each problem to email the Webwork TA.

If you have difficulty with the problem, click on the “Email Web TA” button, and explain your problem. the Webwork TA will respond and help you.

Mote: If you wait until the webwork assignment is nearly due, the Web TA might not have time to get back to you; so it’s best to work on your webwork assignements early in the week.

Note: There is webwork assignment numbered “00”. this asignment doesn’t count, and can be skipped. But, if you’ve never used Webwork, it’s helpful to do set 00 – this basically teaches you how to use webwork.
