This course uses a specialized on-line homework system called Sapling Learning. It is similar to other homework systems such as OWL and WebAssign.

How to sign up for Sapling Learning: 

1.       Go to http://saplinglearning.com


a. If you already have a Sapling Learning account, log in, click "View Available Courses", then skip to step 3.
b. If you have Facebook account, you can use it to quickly create a SaplingLearning account. Click "create account" located under the username box, then click "Login with Facebook". The form will auto-fill with information from your Facebook account (you may need to log into Facebook in the popup window first). Choose a password and timezone, accept the site policy agreement, and click "Create my new account". You can then skip to step 3. 
c. Otherwise, click "create account" located under the username box. Supply the requested information and click "Create my new account". Check your email (and spam filter) for a message from Sapling Learning and click on the link provided in that email.

3.       Find your course in the list (listed by school, course, and instructor) and click the link.

4.       Click the button that says "Send payment via Paypal or Credit Card" and follow the remaining instructions.

5.       Once you have registered and enrolled, you can log in at any time to complete or review your homework assignments.

6.       During sign up - and throughout the term - if you have any technical problems or grading issues, send an email to support@saplinglearning.com explaining the issue. The Sapling support team is almost always more able (and faster) to resolve issues than your instructor.
