 For each section of material covered there will be an assignment of problems on WebAssign. Your WebAssign homework counts towards your grade. Study groups are encouraged, but students should not become too dependent on others. Watching the instructor, or other students, do the problems will not be enough to learn the material. It will be necessary for you to do many exercises yourself in order to be successful on the exams. Attempts to solve homework problems provide the best way to learn the material and to prepare for exams. ​ For each section of material covered there will be an assignment of problems on WebAssign.

-WebAssign is an online homework system which includes an e-book version of our text. If you have a multi-term access code from when taking 224/225, then you do not need to purchase another one. (Exception: if you only purchased one-semester access, then you'll need to buy it again.) If you bought the book through the [[http://​binghamton.bncollege.com/​webapp/​wcs/​stores/​servlet/​BNCBHomePage?​storeId=19073&​catalogId=10001&​langId=-1|Binghamton University Bookstore]] then it comes with an access code. This is a Multi-term Access Code and can be used for multiple semesters including Calculus III. This is the most affordable package with textbook that you'll find. If you did not buy the textbook package through the Bookstore, then you'll need to purchase ($119.99) "​Cengage Unlimited",​ 1 term -4 months. This is a multi-term access code and comes with the ebook. It can also be purchased through our Bookstore. You will have temporary free access to WebAssign for two weeks into the semester without an access code.  All information regarding how to login with Class Key and purchase an access code can be found here [[https://embed.widencdn.net/pdf/plus/cengage/5u3xt0ynyu/gui_webassign-stu-quick-guide.pdf?​u=c8lcjz|WebAssign Student Quick Start Guide]]+WebAssign is an online homework system which includes an e-book version of our text.

 +The shift to remote and hybrid teaching due to the COVID-19 pandemic has required that both instructors and students make changes to their normal working protocols for courses. Students are asked to practice extra care and attention in regard to academic honesty, with the understanding that all cases of plagiarism, cheating, multiple submission, and unauthorized collaboration are subject to penalty. Students may not collaborate on exams or assignments,​ directly or through virtual consultation,​ unless the instructor gives specific permission to do so. Posting an exam, assignment, or answers to them on an online forum (before, during, or after the due date), in addition to consulting posted materials, constitutes a violation of the university’s Honesty policy. Likewise, unauthorized use of live assistance websites, including seeking “expert” help for specific questions during an exam, can be construed as a violation of the honesty policy. All students should be familiar with the University’s Student Academic Honesty Code.

 Math 226 and 227 will have a Basic Skills Test which will cover basic computational skills that you absolutely must be able to do for any class that has Math 226/227 as a prerequisite. There will be one Basic Skills Test for 226 and one Basic Skills Test for 227. The Basic Skills test will be administered and evaluated by computer, with no partial credit, but you may take it twice. A Practice Basic Skills Test will be available on WebAssign containing all the possible problems you could be asked on the actual Basic Skills Test.  Math 226 and 227 will have a Basic Skills Test which will cover basic computational skills that you absolutely must be able to do for any class that has Math 226/227 as a prerequisite.

-The Basic Skills Test will be administered by computer in Whitney Hall, Room G18, using the same software as the WebAssign homework, so you must have a WebAssign key for the Skills Test section before you take the test. For security reasons, you must use the computers provided. You are not assigned a particular time to take the test – you will reserve a time for your test via the following link: [[http://​www.math.binghamton.edu/​ctc|Calculus Testing Center Reservation System]].+/* The Basic Skills Test will be administered by computer in Whitney Hall, Room G18, using the same software as the WebAssign homework, so you must have a WebAssign key for the Skills Test section before you take the test.

 To take into account the lack of partial credit, scores on the Skills Test will be rounded up, so that scores between 70% and 79% will count as a 79%, scores between 80% and 89% will be recorded as 89%, and scores 90% to 100% will receive 100%.
