## Math 20A Homework

### Updated 11/26/17

We will have two different kinds of homework assignments in this class: online homework (which will be graded) and "paper-and-pen" textbook homework (which will not be graded).

## Online Homework

### Online homework (graded) will be done using WebAssign via TritonEd. Use the Access Webassign link, which will be visible in the main menu column or under Content.

• No homework assignment scores will be dropped at the end of the quarter.
• Late Homework: It is possible to request an automatic extension of the due date (of 3 days within 7 days of the deadline) through Webassign. However, late submissions earn a maximum of 50% of their total score. This penalty applies only to excercises submitted after the due date and not to those already submitted before the due date.
• Note: Homework may not be submitted after Tuesday, December 12 (the day of the final exam).

## Textbook Homework

### Homework 0 (Review)

Due As Necessary (no online homework)
• Section 1.4:   1, 3, 6, 7, 9, 11, 19, 21, 43, 45
• Section 1.5:   4, 5, 16, 21, 23, 25, 27, 31, 43, 47
• Section 1.6:   5, 7, 17, 21, 26, 27, 31, 33, 38, 42

Reading: Sections 1.4 - 1.6.  This should be review, so we will not cover these topics during lecture. You are advised to carefully read the sections to make sure you understand the topics very well, because they will appear again and again throughout the course.  Mathematics builds on previous concepts, so without a good understanding of these sections, you will struggle with the remainder of the course.

Note: Homework 0 does not appear in the online homework.  This assignment is review and will not be graded.
