The schedule below may shift a bit as the quarter progresses...

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 RIT E-mail address, something like abc1234. Your initial password should be the final 4-digits of your student RIT ID number, so if your ID number is 12345-6789, the initial password would be 6789. Include all zeroes: if your ID number is 12345-0081, then your initial password will be 0081. You can change your password from the default after you log in for the first time.
