It is important to learn how to present your work in a professional way.
The LaTeX document preparation system is very widely used in physics, mathematics and computer science, and is recommended for preparing assignments.
If you prefer to use Microsoft Office you should format formulas and equations properly with the built-in Equation Editor and Save as PDF for submission on UBlearns.
In an emergency scan handwritten solutions to PDF.
Please make sure you hit the "Submit" button on UBlearns, see Blackboard Help: Submitting Assignments.
