This guide contains information about authoring WeBWorK problems.

- If you're just starting out, see the Problem Authoring Background Information and sample problems first.
- If you're working on a problem in a specific area you may find the more advanced templates useful.
- If you're working on a problem and want to find out how to do one particular thing the index of problem techniques may be useful.
- Use the online calculators to try things out.

## Manuals and HOWTOs

- Problem Authoring Background Information
- Tagging Problems with metadata for indexing and searching.
- Problem Authoring Best Practices for problem authoring.
- MathObjects, an object system for manipulating mathematics in WeBWorK problems.
- PGLabs, online calculators for immediate display of MathObjects and PG markup language (PGML) These are very helpful for learning the syntax.

## Sample Problems

- Index of Sample Problems
- Template 1 (the basic structure of a WeBWorK PG problem file)
- SampleProblem1a (old-style, non-MathObjects example)
- Template 2 (formulas, multiple choice, and string entry problems)
- Template 3 (dynamically generated graphs)

- More Advanced Sample Problems
