implement WeBWorK will be present, as will representatives from many of
the universities and colleges currently using WeBWorK. Major topics for
discussion will be (1) setting up a national library of WeBWorK
problems and coordinating the various groups around the country that
are writing WeBWorK problems and code, (2) people's experience using
WeBWorK and suggestions for improvements, and (3) strategies and tools
The following is a list of presenters:
Tom Shemanske (Dartmouth): Using WeBWorK in general (and in particular at Dartmouth) and teaching other faculty how to use it.
Bill Ziemer (Cal State Long Beach), John Jones (Arizona State), and
Jeff Holt (Virginia): WeBWorK problem library issues. Also how WeBWorK
works at their institutions and installation issues.
Mark Schmitt (Detroit Country Day School): Using WeBWorK in high schools.
