### Textbook and *Webassign*

- All students must have access to
*Webassign*in order to do the homework. UW has a special login page:https://www.webassign.net/washington/login.html. - If you purchased Lifetime of the Edition access to
*Webassign*for the 7th edition of Stewart in Math 124 or 125, you do not need to purchase a new access code. - Students may use either a hard copy of the text or the
electronic text available through
*Webassign*. - If you did not purchase
*Webassign*access for Math 124 or 125, the least expensive option is*Webassign*with the electronic text. The publishing company offers a deal to UW students to receive the text and access for $70:http://www.cengagebrain.com/micro/uwmathcalc - If you wish to purchase a hard copy of the text, the
bookstore carries a custom version, listed as
*Multivariable Calculus*, by James Stewart. You can purchase just the text (if you already have*Webassign*access from Math 125) or the text bundled with a*Webassign*access code (check with bookstore personel to be sure you're getting the access code bundled with the text). - WARNING: For those of you purchasing access for the first
time, be sure you follow the link above for the $70 access +
e-book option. If you log into
*Webassign*and follow their link to "purchase access on-line," they will NOT offer you the $70 Lifetime of the Edition deal (this price was negotiated through the textbook publishers, not through*Webassign*). - Your first homework assignment is due on Tuesday, April 8, at 11 pm.

### Frequently asked questions

*I did not get a slot in 126D, can I attend the lecture anyway? / Can I get an add code to joint 126D?*

The class is completely full with all 160 slots taken. Even worse, the lecture hall MGH 389 has only exactly 160 seats; in other words any student that I would additionally admit would take a seat from one that is already registered. I am also concerned about the students safety if some students need to sit on the stairs and block the way in a potential emergency. I have hence decided to follow the recommendation of the 126 coordinator and**not overbook the class**. Please understand my reasons. Sometimes students drop or change sections, especially in the first week(s). Please check the online system whether a slot gets available. On the other hand, I was informed that the 126 online section takes all students that did not get a slot in the regular sections.

*I am not officially registered to your section, may I at least go to one of the quiz sections?*

All 4 quizz sections are completely full with 40 students each. Also the room SMI 405 has exactly 40 seats. On the other hand, the room AND 008 has 45 seats and CHL 015 has even 50 seats. Hence I suggest that you visit the DA/DB quiz session. If you feel that you are not taking the seat of a registered student then you are welcome stay.*I am registered to a different 126 sections. It would be much more convenient to switch to your section. May I do that?*

Well, if you have somebody who wants to switch sections, then yes. Otherwise admitting you would cause the same problem that I described above.
