Display of Math within WebWork

I am having issues displaying the Math within WebWork. I am guessing that this is an issue with how WebWork is installed in our servers at the College, because I see things differently if I do a problem within our PREP WebWork course or if I do it within my own WebWork course.

Here is an example of a simple one, and how the view is different.

View on the PREP WebWork course:


View within my own WebWork course:


What can be causing this, and how hard would it be to fix it?

The PREP course has MathJax as the default display mode for mathematics. Your site appears to be using image mode. This can be set on a course-by-coure basis in the Course Configuration link in the instructor tools section of the side-bar, and can be configured on a site-wide basis in the webwork2/conf/localOverrides.conf file.

It also likes there may be a problem with the baseline database for images as they should be lining up better than that. You might have the administrators check that the settings are correct in the webwork2/config/defaults.conf for the $pg{displayModeOptions}{images} variable. There are also some dvipng settings in webwork2/lib/WeBWorK/, but unless they have a really old version ofdvipng, those should be OK.
