Learning how to Author WeBWorK problems
- See Problem Authoring Background Information' and sample problems If you're just starting out.
- See index of problem techniques section If you need help with one particular construct.
- See Template 4 to learn techniques which simplify formatting the appearance of the questions.
- See MathObjects for more information on authoring problems using MathObjects.
- See online calculators to try out code fragments -- including code fragments containing MathObjects. This is a quick way to learn the fine points of the MathObject syntax.
Basic info and Sample Problems
- Index of Sample Problems
- More Advanced Sample Problems
Manuals and HOWTOs
- MathObjects, an object system for manipulating mathematics in WeBWorK questions.
- PGLabs, On-line labs for rendering of PG code. These labs allow you to interactively experiment with PG syntax online.
- PGML -- Davide Cervone's newest addition to the PG authoring language makes it easier to describe the layout of a question. The new commands and an interactive environment for experimenting with them are available on the PGLabs page.
- Applets, how to embed Flash and Java applets into WeBWorK questions.
- Basic Perl syntax — PG is based on Perl, so it is important to know some basic Perl syntax.
- [How BEGIN_TEXT...END_TEXT blocks work]]
- Problem Authoring Best Practices for problem authoring.
- Specialized HOWTOS
- Index of Problem Techniques ** very useful code fragments
- macro/library documentation from SVN -- original documentation embedded in the code
- Notes on training authors, and suggestions for further documentation-- Sam Hathaway
- The Good Questions project at Cornell University
