PROMOTING EFFECTIVE PROBLEM SOLVING

The easy-to-use MATH PALETTE adapts its front page to the content of the problem, bringing forward the most appropriate buttons. This helps students focus on the math rather than the format.

DETAILED STEP-BY-STEP SOLUTIONS ensure students learn from a problem when they answer incorrectly or give up.

OUR PROPRIETARY GRADING ALGORITHM combines our homegrown parser and the computer algebra system, SymPy, is programmed to accept every valid equivalent answer. This sophisticated engine paired with targeted feedback ensures the focus is on learning rather whether the answer is correct or incorrect.
