WeBWorK restored – update on Thursday class

Hi everyone,

I hope you had a good long weekend. I have been out of town and just returned (I was camping, with no internet service – so for those who emailed me in the past few days, you have my apologies – I’ll be responding tomorrow). Just a quick heads up – WeBWorK service was restored earlier today. I will be giving everyone an extension on the assignments that were due this week – this will go into effect sometime tomorrow (Thursday).

This Thursday’s class (tomorrow, 9/10) will take place synchronously live on zoom – I will be posting a Class Agenda tomorrow prior to the start of class. We will have a guest speaker for part of the lesson, Professor Laureen Park (Philosophy Department), who will introduce some of the basics ideas of Logic.

See you all tomorrow,

Prof. Reitz

WeBWorK Outage

Hi everyone,

Just wanted to let you know that the WeBWorK server is currently unavailable. Our WeBWorK team is working on the problem, but it may not be resolved until after the long weekend

I will adjust the due dates for your current assignments to give you more time, once the server is back up and running. Thanks for your patience, and apologies for the inconvenience!

-Prof. Reitz

Getting Started with WeBWorK

Your first WeBWorK assignment is due on Tuesday, September 8th, at the start of class, and will cover the material from Lesson 2.  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. 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 password is your Student ID (EmplID in CUNYFirst).

Step 2.   Update your email address if you wish.  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 assignment, titled Assignment1-Sec1.2-1.3. 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.

WeBWorK Tips:

  1. 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.
  2. 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).
  3. 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.”
