Homework and WebAssign
Homework: To access the homework you will have to go through Husky CT single sign-on. In your account you will find a link to do your homework using WebAssign. There will be homework assignments for each section of the text. Each assignment will be made available on WebAssign several days before the section is covered in class. The due date for each assignment will be set by your instructor and will generally be two or three days after the material is covered in class. You will get five attempts for each question that is not multiple choice and fewer than five attempts for each multiple choice question; the exact number of attempts will depend on the number of choices. After each attempt, you will be told whether your answer is correct or not. If you are not able to get the correct answer after your initial attempts, we recommend that you seek help from your instructor, the Q-Center, a tutor, or another student.
When accessing your online homework, use Firefox or Chrome as your browser; there are problems that can occur if you use Internet Explorer or Safari.
Quizzes: There will be a quiz on each homework assignment. These quizzes will be timed assignments on WebAssign.

Students who are going to be out of state and will not be able to take the exams in at the UConn Storrs campus should contact me immediately to make alternate arrangements for proctoring of the exam. The exams are not online and they are traditional paper and pencil based exam which need to be proctored in person.
