ASSISTments is an online tool for teachers around the world to assign schoolwork and assist in student learning. We built content for six Common Core skills new to ASSISTments: absolute value equation solving, logarithmic equation solving, matrix multiplication, matrix addition, complex numbers, and exponential equations. We were able to run 4 different experiments with these skills: adjusting the number of hints provided, varying the number of problems students are required to complete, presenting struggling students with prerequisite content, and examining the difference between theoretical and contextual examples. Our goal in running these experiments is to determine strategies which improve students' understanding of the material and transference of the skill.
