1) The students were AMAZED that they did not have to purchase a book.
2) The first two weeks of a MAT080 class are rough for the students since they have to get used to completing homework assignments, and get used to all of their classes. I have NEVER had an entire class complete the first homework assignment. This class of 18 students did. Every single student turned in their homework assignment on time, and I have to believe that it's because they didn't have to purchase a book or wait for their book. They were able to access their book as soon as they left their classroom.
