11. Online assignments
This course requires the completion of weekly assignments. These will be accessible (and
answers must be submitted) through the Mastering Engineering website. In order to register
on Mastering Engineering, you need to access your course on Quercus.
At the start of the term, use the instructions on page 5 of this handout to register for our course.
Be sure to use your proper UofT registration name and UofT email address.
Each Wednesday night at 11:59 pm, starting January 9th 2019, there will be a list of assigned
problems, which must be solved and submitted on-line within 10 days (by next Saturday night
at 11:59 pm). These problems will generate a different set of input data for each student and so
copying from each other will not work, but you are encouraged to work with your friends and
TAs (see tutorial information below) to fully understand the problem; this should then allow
you to complete your individual calculations. You will be given up to 5 chances to enter the
correct answer for each problem. This should give you sufficient opportunity to correct any
small calculation errors and will be a good inspiration for thorough checking. Once the
assignment is submitted, you cannot change your answers.
If you must miss an assignment for any legitimate reason, a petition and supporting documents
must be submitted to the First-Year Office.
