An access code for MyMathLab is included in the course package for MTH 111. MyMathLab is an on-line homework system that will be a required part of this course. The on-line problems will be variations of the problems assigned for homework in the Course Syllabus. You will also find many supplements on the MyMathLab site that will help you with the homework problems and the course in general. These on-line problems may be assigned before or after the ones assigned in class.
In order to sign up for MyMathLab you will need the MyMathLab Student Access Code that is included in the course package, and the "courseID" specific to your instructor which will be provided by your instructor. This courseID will consist of your instructor's last name and several digits. THESE WILL BE PROVIDED IN CLASS. YOU MUST SIGN UP ONLY FOR THE COURSEID PROVIDED BY YOUR INSTRUCTOR.A list of Course ID numbers is given here. Remember that you must use the COURSE ID for YOUR SECTION of MTH 111 and none other.
