Ensure your students are learning and understanding the important concepts needed to succeed in your course and beyond with WebAssign’s unique question types and problem-solving support.
Find Questions & Content in WebAssign
Unique learning questions are signified in WebAssign in the question name with a distinct abbreviations (ex .EP) and are distributed throughout each chapter and section. You can search the abbreviation in the Question Browser to find these questions types to use in an assignment.
If a question does not have an abbreviation (ex: Algebra Remediation Exercises), you can typically find them in the Question Browser for your title in Chapter 0, or an appendix. If you need any help finding questions for your assignment, contact your Cengage Sales Representative.

Exploring Statistics Activities (.AQ)
Interactive, visual demonstrations enable students to experiment with topics in the chapter. These assets provide students the opportunity to learn concepts by manipulating a visual tool and answering a series of multiple choice questions. Accompanying walk-through videos also help students understand the concepts.
Algorithmic End-of-Chapter Case Problems (.CP)
These longer-form problems help students work through a topic and understand how it applies to the real world. In most problems, students work with data, generate conclusions, and then interpret those conclusions, allowing you to test their knowledge of topics from basic understanding through critical thinking and application.
Algorithmic End-of-Chapter Exercises and Problems
These algorithmic problems help your students practice. The problems include robust post-submission feedback and support options like eBook links, video walkthroughs, step-by-step tutorials and algorithmic solutions, providing support to your students exactly when they need it.
Master Its (.MI)
Master Its (MIs) are optional help tool that students can access at the question-level. When selected, the MI will provide a tutorial in a separate window that will bring your student through each step in the problem-solving process. Master Its are also available as a standalone exercise (MI.SA).
Algorithmic Test Bank Questions (.TB)
These algorithmic questions along with other Assignment/Test settings in WebAssign can help reduce academic dishonesty by providing variations of the same problem for different students. In addition, these questions allow you to provide a consistent testing experience for your students, using the same platform they use for their homework and grade book.
JMP Problems (.JMP)
JMP Statistics Applet (JMP) Exercises help students understand concepts by utilizing real data. Students must discover the answer to guided questions by interacting with a simulation of real data in our JMP interactive applet, exposing them to real world software while honing their ability to interpret results.
