Forms to complete these exercises and problems are provided in your Study Guide and Working Papers book. You will be required to complete the exercises/problems using McGraw-Hill Homework Manager ™ (Note: connectivity is imbedded with course modules in Canvas Learning management system) which is an online interactive program that grades the homework and gives immediate feedback. These homework assignments represent the minimum requirement, completing the homework is critical for success in completing the mini-projects and assessments. The tentative schedule, listed above, provides a guideline when to complete the various assignments, actual completion dates will be updated in class.
