Introduction to WeBWorK. Be sure to look at the link Functions
- Your initial login information is:
username=rutgers e-mail id, password=
student number (with no dashes).
Instructions for those who don't have an
e-mail address with Rutgers will appear on the right of the login page
and the bottom of the webwork page.
- You may change sections during the first week of class (the last
day to drop is 1/24 and last day to add is 1/25). A student who
changes sections should complete the first set in the 'old'
section and begin set 2 in the new section. In this case the score
for set 1 will be manually included in the webwork final score and
will not appear on the students 'new' webwork page.
- The open date is when problems will be available to
students. The due date is the deadline for student submission
of answers. The answer date is when WeBWorK will display answers.
- The preview button tells the student what WeBWorK thinks
the student entered. The answer is not checked for correctness at this
stage. The submit button checks the student answer for
correctness. If the submission is before the due date, WeBWorK will
record that the student attempted the problem. After the due date the
student can have BeBWorK check attempts but these attempts will not be
recorded by WeBWorK.
- Use exact answers: WeBWorK will not accept 'bad'
approximations. So 3^.5 or sqrt(5) should be used instead of 1.732.
- Do not wait until the last possible moment to submit your
answers. The network or the WeBWorK machine may become overloaded with
poor or no response as a consequence! Do the problems when you can
and take advantage of the feedback offered by WeBWorK.
- Dr. H. Carley is maintaining WeBWorK for Math 135. Questions
about the WeBWorK program should be addressed to firstname.lastname@example.org
but mathematical questions should be directed to the lecturer or the
