Online homework are due by midnight (11:59pm) on the days listed below. Although grace time of two hours are given beyond midnight, we DO NOT encourage last minute submission of your work online. There will be online homework due everyday except for several exceptions. We recommend that you have a workbook to record all the computations you do as you complete the problems in the online homework. There is really no difference between paper and pencil homework and online homework other than how they are submitted for grading. You are allowed five attempts for each problem online; the highest score will be recorded. The online system we are using is hosted by CalcPortal. Please follow the CalcPortal Information in Student Information. It is your responsibility to register yourself and submit your online homework in a timely fashion.
One set of written assignment is due about very three lessons in class. The questions from the textbook you could work on after each lesson are listed below. This is meant to set the pace at which written assignments are to be done; we DO NOT encourage completing the entire assignment the night before it is due. Each assignment is due IN CLASS on its due date. As a general rule, we DO NOT accept late assignments.
The questions from the textbook you could work on AFTER each lesson are listed below. We highly recommend that you at least go over the problems after the lesson that day. In doing so you get started and have a good idea how much help you need to get; we DO NOT encourage completing the entire online homework or assignment the night before they are due. You are encouraged to work on homework problems in groups, but the assignments must be turned in individually.
You may use your calculators for homework, but it is strongly recommended that you do not rely on any of the graphing functions on the calculator. Calculators are NOT allowed in all examinations.
Please treat all out of classroom work very seriously. They are very important to your learning; mathematics is NEVER a "spectator sport". So join in the game and get your hands dirty!

All homework turned in are meant to be read. Here's a Sample Homework showing how your assignments should be written. Sharpen your pencils and have fun!!
