Online homework will be done using LaunchPad, the online homework system created by the publisher of our textbook.

Follow this link to log into LaunchPad:  
(The online homework assignments will not be available until the first day of classes.)

Register for LaunchPad using your UCSD email address. Failure to do so may result in loss of your homework grade!

In order to register for the online homework you must have a LaunchPad access code. You can either get the code for free with the textbook (if you buy it from the bookstore) or you can buy the code separately (which costs almost as much as the textbook). The LaunchPad access code gives you electronic access to the textbook (which is why it costs so much), so if you do not want a physical copy of the textbook, then your cheapest option is to buy the access code directly from the publisher.

Note: All lectures use the same LaunchPad course, so if you changing lectures, your LaunchPad access will not change at all.

Alert: If you buy an access code from someone other than our bookstore or the publisher, then you do so at your own risk.

If you have problems registering, purchasing, or logging in, please contact Customer Support. You can reach a LaunchPad customer service representative 24 hours a day, 7 days a week:

You can also contact help by phone (from 9 am to 3 am EST, 7 days a week) at (800) 936-6899.
