Most of the homework will be done on WeBWorK, a free online homework system. One pedagogical advantage of this is that it gives you feedback right away on whether you got the answer right or wrong.

I will post the pdf of the WeBWorK assignments here, as they are available. It should be noted that many numerical values are randomized for different students, so most of these problems will be different from the ones that you have.
