WeBWorK is accessible from on and off campus (anywhere you have access to the internet). Your first two WeBWorK assignments are due on Tuesday, September 6th, at midnight, and will cover the material from the first two weeks of class (primarily from the second week). Here’s what you have to do:
Assignment. To get started , you must complete the following three steps.
Step 1. Log in to WeBWorK here: http://mathww.citytech.cuny.edu/webwork2/MAT2071-F16-Reitz. I have created Usernames and Passwords for each student registered for my class.
Username. Your username for WeBWorK consists of your first initial plus your last name, all lowercase (for example, John Smith would have username ‘jsmith’).
Password. Your temporary password is the same as your username (if your username is ‘jsmith’, your password is currently ‘jsmith’).
Step 2. Change your password and update your email address. To do this, select “Password/Email” from the main menu on the left. Use whatever email address you like (I suggest using one that you check often).
Step 3. Complete the first two assignments, titled Assignment1-Sec1.2-1.3 and Assignment2-Sec1.4-1.7. Click on an assignment on the main screen to get started.
If you have any trouble – either with logging in, or with completing the assignment, post a comment here or send me an email and I will get back to you.
- Click on a problem to see the details (the list of problems appears in the menu on the left). Enter an answer and hit “Submit Answers”. Don’t worry, if you get it wrong you can try it again.
- You can work on the problems in any order you wish. You can do some problems now, and come back and do the rest another day (your work will be saved, as long as you submit your answers).
- If you want to print out a copy of the assignment, click on the assignment name in the main menu on the left, and then click the link in the main screen area that reads “Download a hardcopy of this homework set.”
