Homework The homework in PHY 108 is computer based and uses the WileyPLUS system. This system is based on problems at the end of each chapter and is algorithmic i.e. each student will get a different set of numbers for the same problem. The students must purchase the WileyPLUS package with the textbook or separately if you already have the textbook. The WileyPLUS package contains the access code for each student as well as instructions on how to enroll. You will be allowed four attempts on each problem. The system will let you know whether you got the correct answer or not. If you have difficulty with a particular problem you are strongly encouraged to go to the office hours of either your lecture instructor or your recitation TA and get help so that you can attempt to submit your solution again. Twelve homework problems will be assigned each week and all of them will be graded. To register yourself and to access the homework assignments, please use the following
