Interactive revision problems for engineers

Maths-Aid at Newcastle University commissioned some worksheets to help first-year engineering students with commonly-requested topics, so we’ve been making some quick revision tests with Numbas to go with them.

So far we have one test online, to go with the simple second-order ODE worksheet. Because a Numbas test is just HTML, we could just upload the test to our FTP and it worked without having to do any fiddling with servers or asking for help from an admin. The turnaround from deciding to make the test to having it online and working was just a few hours.
