WeBWorK is a system that allows professors to put homework problems on the web and allows students to solve these problems over the web.

Using WeBWorK, students may try to answer homework problems more than once. After each try, a message appears telling the student whether the answer is correct or not. This allows students to try to find out what they did wrong and hopefully to understand the topic of the question better.

Each WeBWorK problem set is individualized (each student has a different version of each problem, for example the numerical values in the formulas may be slightly different).

Anyone with an internet connection can try out Rochester's version of WeBWorK.

For Rochester, connect to http://www.math.rochester.edu/webwork and use practice1 as the login name and practice1 again as the password. To see different problems, you can login as practice2, practice3, or practice4 and use the login name for the password.
