What is WeBWorK?[edit]

Example of a WeBWork Problem

WeBWorK is a well-tested homework system for delivering individualized problems over the web. By providing students with immediate feedback as to the correctness of their answers, students can be encouraged to make multiple attempts until they succeed. With individualized problem sets, students can work together but will have to enter their own work to receive credit.

The instructors are provided with real-time statistics, resulting in lesson plans that can be customized to better serve students. WeBWorK is partially supported by the DUE Division of NSF.

As of August 2012 there were more than 550 institutions using WeBWorK. The majority of the institutions using this homework system are located in the USA, but at least 65 schools are located in Canada and Mexico, as well as in Europe, Asia, and Africa.
