Math 10B Winter 2020


There are two types of homework assignments in this course, online homework (which will be graded) and pen-and-paper textbook homework (which will not be graded).

Online Homework

Online homework will be done using WebAssign. WebAssign can be accessed from the WebAssign - Math 10B link in your MATH10B_WebAssign_FA19 Canvas shell.

Logging In:  When you access the WebAssign - Math 10B link for the first time, you will be asked to either (1) create a new Cengage account (if you don't already have one), or (2) log in to your existing Cengage account (if you already have one). After logging in to your Cengage account, you will be taken to the Math 10B WebAssign course with a 15-day (beginning January 6) grace period to enter a valid WebAssign access code.

For subsequent logins, you can either login to Canvas and select WebAssign - Math 10B, or you can login with your Cengage account at The top right corner of the WebAssign screen should show your account as "Welcome, username::app-173@ucsd" rather than "". When you logout of WebAssign, it goes to WebAssign's direct login screen, instead of bringing you back to Canvas. Just close the window.

Trouble Logging In:  If you have trouble logging into WebAssign, contact WebAssign Student Support

Access Codes:  To get an access code for WebAssign, you can either (1) purchase the textbook from the UCSD Bookstore, which comes bundled with a multi-term WebAssign access code, or (2) purchase ELECTRONIC ONLY access from the WebAssign website (after first logging in through Canvas). If you already have a multi-term access code (because you took Math 10A last quarter, for example) then you may use the same code. If it does not work automatically, you may need to contact Customer Support.

Late Submissions:  It is possible to request an automatic extension of the due date, but only for 1 day. Late submissions earn a maximum of 80% of their total score. (This penalty applies only to exercises submitted after the due date and not to those already submitted before the due date.)

Textbook Homework Assignments

These assignments will not be turned in and will be not graded; however, certain exam questions are based on textbook homework problems, so understanding the solutions to these problems should help you perform better on the exams. This page is subject to revision during the term. Please check regularly for updates.
