Online Homework Information

This course requires Enhanced WebAssign (EWA) for online homework which comes with an ebook version of our textbook. The semester begins with a 14-day free trial, so everyone will have access to both the online homework and the ebook at the beginning of the semester. Since Math 119 and Math 125 are now using a combined textbook, one EWA Access Code will work for both courses. The EWA code you purchase this semester for Math 119 (College Algebra) will automatically transfer to your Math 125 (Basic Calculus) course when you take it in a future semester (provided that we are still using the same edition of the textbook).

  1. EWA access codes can be purchased at either the campus bookstore or http://go.cengage.com/coursepage/UTKMath here.
  2. EWA access codes may also be purchased directly from WebAssign during the free trial period.
  3. A bundle option (printed textbook with EWA code and ebook) sold at either the campus bookstore or http://go.cengage.com/coursepage/UTKMath here.
  4. You may also be able to find the required course materials from an off campus bookstore or other online site, however, we suggest you compare prices before you purchase. If you want a printed textbook, the campus bundle options are usually less expensive than buying a used textbook and EWA access code separately from outside sources.
  5. **NOTE: If you order a printed textbook bundle from http://go.cengage.com/coursepage/UTKMath the product (textbook and EWA access code) will be physically mailed to you.
