Homework Assignments
All assignments for this course must be done using Mastering Engineering which is Prentice-Hall’s online homework system.
If you purchased a textbook through the bookstore it should have come with a Mastering Engineering Access Kit which has a registration code to be entered online.
If you purchased a textbook without an access kit, you will need to purchase an access code online.

Note that each instructor has a unique Mastering Engineering course number.
The instructor should give you this course number so that you can register for the correct course.

Notes about Mastering Engineering
- Most problems are randomized so each student will have different numerical values for the same problem.
- Generally 5 attempts are allowed for each problem, but this could be adjusted by the instructor
- The Due Dates for each assignment are listed in Mastering Engineering.  On rare occasions the instructor may extend the due dates.  If this is done an email announcement will be sent out via Blackboard.
- It is strongly recommended that you print out each problem and neatly work them on paper so that you will have good study materials for the tests.
