Textbook and Webassign

If you purchased webassign for Math 111, you can log in with your UW net ID and start doing your homework.

If not (unlikely because Math 111 is the prerequisite for this course), you have to purchase webassign within the first two weeks of the course. If you get your webassign at the bookstore together with your textbook, follow the directions in the envelope. Here are step by step directions with some screenshots to help you through the process.

Webassign comes with an electronic version of the textbook Mathematical Applications for the Management, Life, and Social Sciences, twelfth edition, by Harshbarger and Reynolds. In Math 112 we will cover Chapters 9-14. You are not required to purchase a hard copy of the text.

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 grades. See me if you miss an exam. You can follow your homework scores in Webassign and the rest of your grades from catalyst

General
On the exams and the quizzes you can only use a TI 30X IIS calculator. You can get any color you want.

You can bring a handwritten 8   by 11 (regular notebook size) sheet of notes to the exams. Single sided for the midterms, double sided for the final.

Homework assignments will be visible one week before they are due. In the quiz sections, after the activity or the quiz, you can discuss your homework problems.
