Algorithmic Problems

Algorithmic problems are auto-graded exercises using different numeric values each time a problem is served up to the student. This gives students practice in working a problem several times -- same question, but different numbers each time. This also deters cheating because each student in a class or lab receives a slightly different version of the problem and correct answer.

These assignable and autograded modules are available in Connect and cover basic Math, Statistics and Excel topics and were designed to help instructors ensure that all students have the same level of preparedness in the course.

Guided Examples
