Open-source math homework system

WeBWorK is an open-source online homework system that is used to create online questionnaires. This interactive platform gives access to a library of 450 English-language math problems (English Problem Library). This library was added to the existing 3,046 French-language problems. The problems are generally diversified in terms of their content and format and deal with a wide array of mathematical concepts.

The material in the CCDMD English Problem Library was specially designed to use intermediate steps. WeBWorK focuses on solutions and lets students figure out which steps in the solution are incorrect. This way, students learn better and tend to use online resources less.

The exercises are corrected in real-time, allowing individual support and immediate, reliable feedback to students as they work through the problems.

WeBWorK is based on open-source technology and is made available free of charge to teachers and students of the Québec college network and other postsecondary education institutions. To make it easier for teachers to sign up for WeBWorK, and to simplify how they manage and share their courses, the CCDMD has developed a home interface called “Portail de Math” (in French only), which is available at
