students in several 100 and 200 level courses here at FSU. In this presentation
Prof. Hanna will share his experiences and touch on the following topics:

what 'drove' his interest
in webbased homework systems,

the benefits of web HW ...
for both students and instructors,

the results of webHW
research studies – nationwide,

the results of our own FSU
informal study ... 13 sections of Math 115 during F08,

a comparison of WebAssign
(a textbook specific web HW site, open to any publisher) and MyMathLab (the
proprietary web HW site of Pearson/Prentice hall).
