AIM WeBWorK working groupsFrom August 6 through August 10, 2007 thirty WeBWorK users with various levels of involvement and expertise met face to face to work on improving the power and flexibility of the PG language used to author the WeBWorK problems and to extend the range of examples and documentation available for mathematics instructors learning to write homework exercises for WeBWorK.
In five days we were able to make substantial progress. Among other outcomes was the formation of working groups (and designated leaders for those groups) each focused on one of twelve topics.
If you are interested in one of the topics and would like to participate please contact the leader listed in the resource below.
In many cases the outcomes from the groups work will be announced in the Main Forum.
