Creating Effective Homework Sets with WeBWorK: Building the WeBWorK National Problem Library
Jason Aubrey and Gavin LaRose
June 23 – 26, 2011
Registration Fee: $175 per person ($250 for registrations received after May 12, 2011)
WeBWorK (webwork.maa.org) is an open-source online homework system with extensive capabilities to create interesting, effective homework problems. In this workshop, participants will develop the technical skills to create and identify high-quality WeBWorK problems that take full advantage of WeBWorK’s extensive capabilities, and will collaborate to create a broadly useful and appropriate library of problems and homework problem sets for different undergraduate mathematics courses.
In addition, participants will frame and initiate the development of assessment and development tools for the existing WeBWorK National Problem Library. The workshop will have four online web conferences that precede a four-day face-to-face workshop held at the MAA’s Carriage House, and follow-up web conferences..
