Looking for the WeBWorK Moodle site?

This wiki is for instructors using WeBWorK on-line homework in their courses and for those working on the development of WeBWorK. Students using WeBWorK for their homework should NOT register on this site (unless they wish to help with writing development software). The course instructor can give students the URL for their WeBWorK course. Usually this is a path to a server on their campus. Additional documentation for students can be reached via the "Students" link below.

WeBWorK is an open source Perl-based system for delivering individualized homework problems over the web. By providing students with immediate feedback as to the correctness of their answers, students are encouraged to make multiple attempts until they succeed. By individualizing problems, cheating is discouraged. By providing instructors with real-time statistics, lesson plans can be customized to better serve students. WeBWorK is partially supported by the DUE Division of NSF. (See: Grants, awards, and support.)
