AIM is an online system to grade homework assignments. Each student
gets an individualized set of questions. The due date for each assignment
is indicated to the right of it. You can submit as many times
as you want before 11:59PM on the due date of the assignment. All your
answers are saved; do as many questions as you want at a time. For
example, you can access your questions, print them out, work out the
answers on paper, then come back a day later and input your answers.

AIM will penalize you if you try to random guessing:
for each wrong
answer, 15% of the question value will be deducted.
Please double-check your work before giving an answer!
AIM It will tell you if
your answer is wrong, but wont provide the solution until after the due
date.

###
How are assignment answers entered?

Answers must be typed in with the syntax used by Maple, which is more or
less the same syntax used to enter mathematical formulas in spread sheet
programs such as Excel and programming languages such as Java, C, and Basic.
The following examples are intended to provide an overview of the proper
syntax that will be needed for assignments in this course.

Operation/Symbol |
Example |
Required Syntax |

multiplication |
2*x* |
**2*x** |

Exponents |
7^{-1.6} |
`7^(-1.6)` |

square roots |
` __`
`\/ 3` |
`sqrt(3)` or `3^(1/2)` |

Fractions |
`a + b`
`-----`
`c + d` |
`(a+b)/(c+d)` |

pi |
p |
`pi `or` Pi` |

Other greek letters |
q, e, d |
`theta, epsilon, delta` |

Exponential function |
*e*^{x} |
`e^x` or `E^x` or `exp(x)` or |

Trig functions |
sin *x*, cos *x*, tan *x* |
`sin(x), cos(x), tan(x)` |

Inverse trig functions |
sin^{-1} x, cos^{-1} x, tan^{-1} x |
`arcsin(x), arccos(x), arctan(x)` |

This should be enough to get you started.
