At least 2/3 of the questions on the midterm and final exams will be similar to homework problems, so doing them is essential in order to do well in the course. There are two types of homework problems, WeBWorK Assignments and Suggested Problems from the text as detailed below. WeBWorK assignments are worth 10% of your grade. Your instructor may give short biweekly quizzes in class based on the WeBWork assignments and suggested problems that are worth another 5%. See your section website for details.
WeBWorK Assignments: Weekly homework assignments using the WeBWorK online homework system will be posted at least one week before their due date. These assignments will be worth 10% of your course grade. You will need to use a Web browser to access these assignments and submit your answers. You must submit your answers before the due date, which will be 9 p.m. on Fridays. Necessary material will be covered in class by early in the week. It is strongly recommended that you work on these assignments well in advance of the due date. Questions are randomized, so different students will receive different versions of the problems. To access your particular WeBWorK assignments, click here and login using your CWL or click the MATH101_ALL_2012W2 link at https://webwork.elearning.ubc.ca. If you prefer, you can also access these assignments by logging in to Connect at http://elearning.ubc.ca/connect/. Note that WeBWorK assignments are the only element of MATH 101 available on Connect.
Suggested Problems: Additional problems from the text will be posted below. These problems are mostly odd-numbered problems from the text. Answers to the odd-numbered problems are given in the back of the text, and solutions to these problems are in the Student Solutions Manual, which is included with the text in the package sold by the UBC Bookstore. These problems are not collected.
