18.12.2001Professor Larry Martin, Northpark university U.S.AWebAssign and Mathematica
AbstractWebAssign supports math beyond the simple plug-and-chug number crunching. You can ask questions requiring Symbolic answers (functions of one or more variables). Of course, students have to obey the silly rules that computers tend to use like "implicit multiplication is not allowed," but that is good for professional practice. Additionally, WebAssign works well with MathML for presenting math on the web. MathML is the first internationally defined and accepted standard for XML (eXtensible Markup Language) presentation of mathematical material on the web. I will show several examples of the tools available for creating and rendering and interpreting MathML in web pages and in other ways.
