I realize that there is significantly less grading to do for professors with online homework. The program does everything for you. However, from a student's perspective I absolutely abhor it. It makes me want to go postal when I have to re-do questions because of round of error (sometimes the program doesn't carry as many sig figs as my calculator). Everyone I've spoken to in engineering and science hates online homework. Not only that, in addition to paying hundreds of dollars for the textbooks we as students now have to pay pretty much an extra $ 50 to sign up at random homework websites to get access. This is absolutely despicable. I thought professors had their TA's do all the grading anyway. So what exactly is the deal with online homework? Some things are better left to be done with pen and paper.
