**WebAssign**

Faculty have the option of utilizing WebAssign, a web-based supplement to our textbook. This portal provides graded and practice homework problems, online quizzes, video instruction and an eBook. WebAssign registration requires an access code, which is included with the text purchased from the Villanova Bookstore.

Note: If you choose to rent/purcase a book that comes without a WebAssign code, you will be required to purchase the registration code separately if your instructor uses WebAssign.

Upon the start of each semester, students will received a second code, called a class enrollment code, from their instructor. This code enrolls them into the specific course set up by their instructor for that semester.

**Computer Algebra System (CAS)**

Instructors will be using Maple or a comparable Computer Algebra System in the course.
