This is an interactive homework problem for introductory physics students involving a cart and a block connected by a string passing over an ideal pulley.  The student must determine the work done on the cart by the string.   After submitting an answer, the student is provided with a Socratic-dialog "help" sequence designed to encourage critical thinking.  In the dialog series, a guided conceptual analysis precedes the mathematics.  Immediate feedback is provided for both correct and incorrect responses.
