# WeBWorK Guide for Students

WeBWorK Fundamentals:

• Be sure to check your City Tech e-mail as your instructor will be sending you your login and password information to your WeBWorK account. You will log on to WeBWorK here:Â http://mathww.citytech.cuny.edu/webwork2/Â and be sure to look for your class and instructorâ€™s name.
• Pay close attention to the due dates for each problem set. You are always able to review the problems after the set closes, but you will not be graded for completing problems after the due date.
• After a problem set is due, most problems include a full solution at the bottom.
• You can generate a PDF copy of any problem set, and after the due date, you may generate a PDF that includes the solutions.
• Make sure to try each problem at least once. After your first attempt, most problems have a â€śhintâ€ť that will become available once youâ€™ve tried the problem.
• If your instructor has enabled it, you may be able to practice multiple versions of the same problem by clicking â€śShow Me Another.â€ť Additional versions are only for practice, and will not affect your grade.
• Incorrect attempts will not affect your grade. However, if your instructor has enabled the â€śShow Me Anotherâ€ť feature, you should practice problems until you can get them right on your first attempt.

• Read the directions for each problem carefully.Â Each problem will tell you what to look out for â€“ reduced fractions; decimal form; exact form; reduced radicals; etc.
• Use â€śsqrt(â€¦)â€ť to write square roots.
• In order to avoid issues with the order of operations, make sure to use parentheses around your numerators and denominators when writing answers that are fractions. â€ś(numerator)/(denominator)â€ť
• Use â€śPreview My Answersâ€ť to see how WeBWorK interprets your answer â€“ does it look like what you intended?
