Lets students check answers to math and science questions

Spotter lets students check their answers to math and science questions. It tells whether the answer is correct, and can also help diagnose an incorrect answer; the instructor can also add hints. Spotter isn't limited to numerical problems. For instance, if the problem is to solve the equation x-b-7a=0 for x, the student can type in either b+7a or 7a+b as the answer, and the program will know it's correct. Spotter is set up as an interactive web page that you can access through any computer that has an internet connection and a web browser.
