Abstract: The aim of this paper is to demonstrate how WebWork improves the student success rates in Ordinary Differential Equations course. WeBWork provided by the Mathematical Association of America was adopted as the online homework system. In the fall 2017, the system was implemented in two classes of Ordinary Differential Equations. As a result, the passing rate of the sections with WeBWork is well above other sections without WeBWork (about 8% higher). The paper also shows how the WeBWork system was used.
