Homework sets.

In order to use the on-line homework system, you need to know your login name and your initial password. Your "login name" should be the same as your last name, but spelled in lower case only; so Joe Smith should type smith. Your initial password should be the final 4 digits of your 9-digit RIT student ID number so if your ID number is 123456789, the initial password would be 6789. You can change your password from the default after you log in for the first time.
