This file is /conf/snippets/setHeader.pg you can use it as a model for creating files which introduce each problem set. The primary purpose of WeBWorK is to let you know that you are getting the correct answer or to alert you if you are making some kind of mistake. Usually you can attempt a problem as many times as you want before the due date. However, if you are having trouble figuring out your error, you should consult the book, or ask a fellow student, one of the TA’s or your professor for help. Don’t spend a lot of time guessing – it’s not very efficient or effective. Give 4 or 5 significant digits for (floating point) numerical answers. For most problems when entering numerical answers, you can if you wish enter elementary expressions such as 2 ∧ 3 instead of 8, sin(3 ∗ pi/2)instead of -1, e ∧ (ln(2)) instead of 2, (2 + tan(3)) ∗ (4 − sin(5)) ∧ 6 − 7/8 instead of 27620.3413, etc. Here’s the list of the functions which WeBWorK understands. You can use the Feedback button on each problem page to send e-mail to the professors.
