In the summer of 2006 at the MathFest in Knoxville Davide Cervone introduced the MathObjects extension to the PG language. This allows you to write code using objects that more closely mimic mathematics constructs as we usually think about them. This code is easier to read and to maintain and is now the preferred way to write problems. (Of course there are still many problems written without using MathObjects, but when creating new problems use a "MathObjects" problem as a model if at all possible. :-)

Notice that the slide show presentations use WeBWorK itself as a presentation tool.

  • More on math objects : Davide's in depth talk on the properties of MathObjects given at the AIM webwork workshop in August 2007 at the American Institute of Mathematics in Palo Alto, CA. Problems 4, 9, 14, 15, 16, 18, 19, 51, 52, 57, 60, 61, 66, 68, 70, 72, 74, 76, 78, 82 display as webwork problems, the rest of the text shows up if you download the hardcopy.
