WeBWorK is an open-source online homework system for math and sciences courses. WeBWorK is supported by the MAA and the NSF and comes with a National Problem Library (NPL) of over 20,000 homework problems.
I am creating on-line Elementary Algebra problems for WeBWorK. The problems will not be book specific. I will use my Webwork problems for the Elementary Algebra course in similar ways to how I use Webwork in other courses:
1. I will assign and count on-line, Webwork homework.
2. I will count the Webwork homework as 10% of the grade.
3. I will also assign a lot of homework out of whatever textbook I use.
3. Students who have an overall Webwork score of 80%, will get to drop
their lowest exam score (out of about 8 exams).
Try them out:
You can access my problem sets on the WeBWorK site here.
Your user name and password are any of student1, student2, student3, student4, and student5.
I would be pleased to collaborate with other faculty on problem sets for Dev Math, or to advise others about using WeBWorK for their own projects.
