WebAssign Enrollment and Access Instructions
The first WebAssign homework sets are due on Wednesday August 31st at 11:59pm.
 Log into elearning, and select MATH 2415.701
 Click the link on the eLearning course homepage entitled Access WebAssign.
 If you already have a WebAssign account, you will either see the WebAssign course
MATH 2415.701 at the left or you will see a pulldown menu with courses listed; choose MATH 2415.701.

 If you already have a WebAssign account with the text for this course, you should be taken to the WebAssign course
MATH 2415.701.
 If you do not already have a WebAssign account with the text for this course, you will have 3 options to register.
 Purchase access online if you do not already have an access code and you want to buy access to the ebook and homework problems without printed text.
 Enter an access code if you have already purchased an access code.
 Continue my trial period if you want to start using the system before purchasing. The deadline is given in red.
 Once you have registered, you should be taken to the WebAssign course MATH 2415.701.
 Upon subsequent returns, you should only need to repeat steps 13.
WebAssign Policies and Advice
 We will NOT answer messages sent from within WebAssign's Ask The Teacher link. Instead email
[email protected] .
 There are approximately 200 students in Math 2415 this semester. For that reason there will be no regrades of
submitted WebAssign homework.
 Use the
Practice A Similar Problem feature to make sure you understand how to enter your answers
correctly before you do the actual problem to be submitted.
 We recommend that you start your homework well before the due date.
 Although the system is not perfect, please remember that the advantage of digital homework is that you get more feedback more quickly than if we just had paper homework.
 Each problem will be worth
5 points. Students will have three attempts, with a maximum score of 5/5 for the first and second attempts and a maximum score of 3/5 for the third attempt.
You will be able to submit each part of a multipart question separately. Therefore,
if you get a part correct by second try then you get full credit for that part.
 Entry of Vectors: In 12.2 #3 of this week's webassign hwk you have to enter a vector using the
i, j,k notation. If you want to enter an answer like 3i + 4j +5k
do NOT type the i, j,k using your keyboard.
Instead on the right of the web assign page you will see a CalcPad. Click on the Vectors tab and you will see the symbols for i, j,k. Use them.
 Do NOT use the less than and greater than symbols on your keyboard. Instead use the special
< > symbol option in the Vectors tab of the CalcPad to enter a vector.
Similar comments apply to functions like exponential, logarithm, and all the trig functions.
Brushing Up on Single Variable Calculus
If you need to brush up on your single variable calculus, here are the sections
Stewart's "Calculus (Early Transcendentals)" Edition 7E
that we rely on in Math 2415. Starred sections are
especially important.
2.1, 2.7, 2.8, 3.1, 3.2, 3.3, 3.4**, 3.10,
4.1, 4.3, 4.5, 4.7, 4.9, 5.15.4, 5.5**, 6.1, 6.2, 7.1
The material from Chapter 5,6,7 is used in Math 2415 Chapters 15, 16.
The material from Chapter 4,5,6 is used in Math 2415 Chapters 14, 15.
