Q: Are these problems pre-set on WebAssign? Or does each instructor write their own? If pre-set…are they in the 9th edition of Stewart or which book are you using for the examples?

A: There will be a pre-set in the WebAssign course for the 9th editions of Stewart/Clegg/Watson Calculus and Calculus: Early Transcendentals for fall 2020 classes. These will be clearly indicated in the Question Browser.

Q: I currently have all my homework assignments using the 8th edition of Stewart. How much redesigning of the full homework needs to happen to upgrade to the 9th edition?

A: You will be able to use the textbook upgrade tool to convert to the new edition in June. At that point, if you have your current course set up, you can say “upgrade to the 9th edition”. It will update your course to the 9th edition and you will have access to new questions to help you make that transition. You won’t need to redesign your entire course – all assignments will update automatically.
