Textbook and Webassign Your homework assignments
will be on webassign. Always login to webassign with your UWnetID
and password. You have to purchase webassign within the first
two weeks of the course. When you get your textbook for Math 111at the
bookstore which comes with webassign, follow the
directions in the envelope. It is a two step
process: you first use the code on the paper to get a webassign
access code, then you enter that code to webassign. Here
are step by step directions with some screenshots to help you through the
process. If you buy webassign from the online link
in webassign it may be more expensive. If you need
any help see the calendar below for webassign help. Webassign
comes with an electronic version of the textbook Mathematical Applications for
the Management, Life, and Social Sciences, twelfth edition, by Harshbarger and
Reynolds so you don’t have to have your hard copy with you always.
Math 111 covers chapters 1, 2, 4, 5, and 6; Math 112 covers Chapters 914. During the first three weeks
of Math 111, we will follow the
supplementary reading on graphical techniques. In the schedule below I
refer to it as the Supplement. 

Grading There will be two midterms, one final exam,
quizzes, activities and homework assignments. The final is 30%, midterms are
24% each, the homework assignments are 10%, the quizzes are 8% and the
activities are 4% of your grade. Late homework is not accepted. There are no
make ups for activities, quizzes or midterms. I will drop your lowest
activity and quiz scores. If you miss a midterm exam, you have to talk to me
personally as soon as you return to campus. You can follow your homework
scores in Webassign
and the rest of your grades from catalyst 

More On the exams and the
quizzes, you can only use a TI 30X IIS calculator. You can get it in any
color you want. You can bring a handwritten 8 ½ by 11 (regular notebook size)
sheet of notes to the exams. Single sided for the midterms, double sided for
the final. You will also need a clear plastic ruler to use in class and on
exams. You can see the lecture
topics, quizzes, activities, homework assignments and exams in the schedule
below. You can also follow your homework schedule on Webassign. Homework assignments
will be visible eight days before they are due. You have homework due MWF
nights on most weeks, about two and a half days after the relevant lecture.
In the quiz sections, after the quiz, there will be a discussion on the
homework assignment due soon. Try to get as much of your homework done before
you go to your quiz section. If you miss a lecture, read what you missed from
the Supplement or
the textbook.
