PHY 2048 - Physics with Calculus 1 - FALL 2015

ON-LINE GRADED HOMEWORK (due by 11:00pm on the dates shown below)

To get onto the online homework system you will need to enter the WileyPLUS access code that came with the hardcopy textbook you purchased at the bookstore; or came with the eBook you purchased on-line at Wiley for UF (here). Have your access code ready when you first access the system.

When you first go to the URL: before doing anything click the "Browser Check" link on the right pane. This will check to see that your browser is configured properly to use the system, and if it is not guide you through the steps to do so..

To register on WileyPLUS: go to WileyPLUS and follow the instructions there. To properly get credit for your efforts you must enter the following "Student Profile" information correctly:
  • First Name: Your first name as it appears on the Registrars list for PHY2048.
  • Last Name: Your last name (i.e. family name) as it appears on the Registrars list for PHY2048.
  • E-mail: Your Gatorlink E-mail address (i.e.
  • Phone: Your phone number.
  • Student ID: Your UF-ID number (8 digit, e.g. 12345678).
Note you must input correctly your Gatorlink E-mail address and your UF-ID!

Do not delay in logging-on/registering on the system. Not getting your homework in because you waited to the last minute and had trouble registering will not excuse you from the resulting zero on the homework assignment. Note that the first graded online homework assignment (Set 1) is due on Saturday August 29, 2015. Once the due date/time has passed no further input of answers for credit will be accepted. It is your responsibility to get your homework in on time. Last minute computer/local server problems will not excuse you from this responsibility.

WileyPLUS On-line Homework Problems:
  • The problems come from your textbook. However, the numbers are randomized for each student (i.e. the problems will be same as the textbook but with different numbers).
  • You will have five tries to get the correct answer. You will not be counted off for "significant figures", however, your answer must be correct to within 2%.
  • For most of the problems WileyPLUS will give you a "hint" after the third incorrect try and for some of the problems WileyPLUS will give you the solution after the assignment due date.

The homework portion of the course will count for 10% of the overall course grade. To provide a measure of forgiveness for illnesses and possible network problems, 10% of the homework scores will be dropped in evaluating your final grade.
