Since 2000 my students and I have been authoring a Computer-Aided Assessment package, called Mathletics but now 're-invented' as maths e.g. This uses MathML, SVG and random parameters withing questions. This means an inexhaustible supply of questions will be generated at runtime, each with very complete feedback including a fully-worked solution if you get any question wrong.
This work is supported by Brunel University's Teaching and Learning Support Unit, the Maths, Stats and OR Network (MSOR), FDTL4 PPLATO, FDTL5 METAL, DeSTRESS and others.
Students can access the questions at:

ACADEMICS and TEACHERS can also set up their own assessments by signing up at:
