Learning how to Author WeBWorK problems

Basic info and Sample Problems

Reference Documents

  • Index of Problem Techniques ** very useful code fragments
  • Subject Area Templates ** complete examples for questions on various math subjects
  • POD -- POD = "plain old documentation" -- original documentation embedded in the code files -- this is the place to find the most complete and most technical description of macro behaviors.
  • PGLabs, On-line labs for rendering of PG code. These labs allow you to interactively experiment with PG syntax online.
  • PGML formatting examples.
  • The Good Questions project at Cornell University [1]

Manuals and HOWTOs

  • File:WeBWorK Problem Authoring Tutorial.pdf aimed at people who already know TeX, but need to learn about Perl, PG, and MathObjects.
  • 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.
