Abstract

Authors' abstract: The goal of this project is to increase the success of students in learning mathematics and improve retention in STEM discipline via implementation of online WebWork in STEM education. This project will have broader impact on the teaching and learning mathematics by providing more effective and efficient homework practice. Students will benefit from the instant feedback since every homework problem is graded online. Instructors will also benefit greatly being relieved from the burden of manually checking homework and simultaneously being able to determine how well the students are learning the subject. The WebWork system has been adopted by over 100 colleges and universities in U.S. for Mathematics and Science homework delivery.
