A Model Course is a complete implementation of WeBWorK for a selection of standard courses. The intent of a model course is to provide an example that might be quickly adopted and utilized by a new user.

The following models can be reviewed by logging in to the appropriate course as a guest user. In this mode, problems can be viewed but answers will not be checked. Easy mechanisms for utilizing these models are currently under construction but anyone desiring to have the current set of problems should download the zipped up set of files available under each course.
