OpenLab Assignment (Due next Tuesday evening, March 16th). Your second exam will take place next week. The review sheet has been posted. In the interest of making this assignment a help (instead of an extra chore), I’m asking you to post a comment related to the second exam. Any one of the following types of comments will earn you full points:
- A request for help on a question. It must be more specific than just “how do I do this problem?” Let us know where you’re stuck (and what you’ve done so far). If you don’t know how to get started on a problem, you can say so — but tell us a little about why (is it different from problems we did in class?). Your post must use correct notation!
- A general question about a topic that we’ve been studying. Is there some part of the course that’s been bothering you? A type of problem that you just don’t get? Something you keep trying but always get wrong? Post a question here – maybe someone can help.
- An answer to someone else’s question. You don’t have to give every step or every detail, but you should provide enough information to help them along. Your post must use correct notation!
- A helpful comment or suggestion about a topic that we’ve been studying. Do you have a trick for solving certain problems? A neat way of remembering a formula? Some thoughts about what makes certain problems hard, and suggestions for solving them? Post it!
WeBWorK Update: As you all know, WeBWorK access has been terrible this week! Our hardworking system administrator is trying to figure out what’s going wrong, but until the difficulties get worked out I am making the following changes:
- WeBWorK assignment #1 will be extended for 2 weeks, and is now due on March 20th (this update will be made on the WeBWorK servers as soon as I can get access to them…).
- There will be no new WeBWork assigned until the current difficulties are resolved. We’ll pick up again once the system is working more reliably.
- Some of you may have noticed Assignment #2 in the WeBWorK system. This will be removed shortly — you don’t have to worry about it.
I hope this addresses your concerns about our current WeBWorK problems!
