National Problem Library (NPL)

File Based Problem Libraries

These libraries consist of a directory tree organized roughly by the chapters of a canonical calculus book (or in some cases a canonical text for another subject). There is no database index of tagged meta-data.

It is envisioned that the material in these libraries will eventually be given meta-data,checked for errors and duplicates and folded into the NPL.

The CVS links allow you to inspect the question collections from the web.

See CvsProblemLibraryInstructions for instructions on downloading the contents of these libraries via CVS.

Arizona State University Math Problem Library (CVS )

This problem library is now empty. All of the problems have been moved into the National Problem Library.

The College of New Jersey Math Problem Library (CVS )

Command line command for cvs checkout: cvs -d :pserver:anoncvs@cvs.webwork.rochester.edu:/webwork/cvs/tcnj co tcnj_problib

The College of New Jersey (TCNJ) makes a large number of linear algebra problems available in this collection. Please send links of any problems that don't work to Tom Hagedorn (hagedorn@tcnj.edu.

Dartmouth College Library CVS )
Command line command for cvs checkout: cvs -d :pserver:anoncvs@cvs.webwork.rochester.edu:/webwork/cvs/dartmouth co dartmouth_problib

This library has problems compatible with the Marsden and Tromba multi-dimensional calculus book. It also has problems compatible with the later chapters in Stewart's calculus book.http://cvs.webwork.rochester.edu/viewcvs.cgi/dartmouth_problib/?cvsroot=Dartmouth+College

Detroit County Day School Math Problem Library (High School) (CVS )
Command line command for cvs checkout: cvs -d :pserver:anoncvs@cvs.webwork.rochester.edu:/webwork/cvs/dcds co dcds_problib

These high school and pre-calculus level problems were written by Mark Schmidt at Detroit Country Day School. Send corrections to gage at math.rochester.edu or to M. Schmitt at dcds.edu

Freeman: Problems inspired by Raguski Calculus book (CVS )

Indiana University Math Problem Library (CVS )
Command line command for cvs checkout: cvs -d :pserver:anoncvs@cvs.webwork.rochester.edu:/webwork/cvs/indiana co indiana_problib

Northern Arizona University Library (CVS )
Command line command for cvs checkout: cvs -d :pserver:anoncvs@cvs.webwork.rochester.edu:/webwork/cvs/nau co nau_problib

The Northern Arizona University Library has new problems for graph theory, for statistics and for pre-calculus. The setExamples cleans up some of the problems in Rochester Library's setMAAtutorial and adds several more. Send corrections to Nandor.Sieben@NAU.EDU.

Union College Math Problem Library (CVS )

Command line command for cvs checkout: cvs -d :pserver:anoncvs@cvs.webwork.rochester.edu:/webwork/cvs/union co union_problib

The Union College Math Problem Library should now be fully funcitonal. A few of the problems may not work as advertised, since they may have trouble finding the links to auxiliary materials, such as external graphs.

Davide Cervones and Kathryn Leash are principally responsible for designing these problems. The level set and 3d problems are particularly nice!!

Please send links of any problems that don't work to gage at math.rochester.edu or dpvc at union.edu or even better enter them into bugzilla via the "report problem bugs" on the PG editor page.

UC Santa Barbara and Brooks/Cole: Problems inspired by Stewart's Calculus book (CVS )
Command line command for cvs checkout: cvs -d :pserver:anoncvs@cvs.webwork.rochester.edu:/webwork/cvs/ucsb co ucsb_problib

University of Georgia Math Problem Library (CVS )
Command line command for cvs checkout: cvs -d :pserver:anoncvs@cvs.webwork.rochester.edu:/webwork/cvs/uga co uga_problib

University of Michigan Math Problem Library (CVS)
Command line command for cvs checkout: cvs -d :pserver:anoncvs@cvs.webwork.rochester.edu:/webwork/cvs/umich co umich_problib

This library contains problems related to the Hughes-Hallet et.al. Harvard Calculus text. Send corrections to Gavin Larose (glarose at umich.edu) or even better enter them into bugzilla via the "report problem bugs" on the PG editor page. WeBWorK mathematics homework problems created at the University of Georgia. Send corrections to Ted Ashton (ashted at math.uga.edu) or even better enter them into bugzilla via the "report problem bugs" on the PG editor page.

University of Rochester Math Problem Library (CVS )
Command line command for cvs checkout: cvs -d :pserver:anoncvs@cvs.webwork.rochester.edu:/webwork/cvs/rochester co rochester_problib

The Rochester Math Problem Library should now be fully funcitonal. A few of the problems may not work as advertised, since they may have trouble finding the links to auxiliary materials, such as external graphs. Please send links of any problems that don't work to gage at math.rochester.edu or even better enter them into bugzilla via the "report problem bugs" on the PG editor page.

The Rochester library includes many problems prepared by Zbigniew Fiedorowicz at Ohio State University as well as a large number of problems prepared by Jun Wang at Alabama State University

University of Rochester Physics Problem Library (CVS )
Command line command for cvs checkout: cvs -d :pserver:anoncvs@cvs.webwork.rochester.edu:/webwork/cvs/rochester co rochester_physics_problib

These physics problems were originally written in CAPA and mechanically translated into the PG language. Thanks to help from Frank Wolfs the .eps file pictures now display properly.

University of Rochester Grade 8 Math Problems (CVS )
Command line command for cvs checkout: cvs -d :pserver:anoncvs@cvs.webwork.rochester.edu:/webwork/cvs/rochester co rochester_grade8problems

These problems, written largly by Tori Sweetser, contain material at the level of the New York State 8th grade exams.

Many of these problems are written using the multiple choice and matching tools. Send corrections to gage@math.rochester.edu
