In the given work, the technology to create mathematical assignments with an auto-checking system in the MOODLE system to control education was considered. It is shown that due to using the STACK plugin, those assignments can be applied in all main sections of mathematical basics courses for engineering training: vector and matrix algebra, analytical geometry, mathematical analysis. The examples of interactive assignments for the development of mathematical thinking are listed. Two different methods of using auto-checking assignments in the educational program are shown. The first includes work in class with computer facilities and students’ self-studies. Thanks to individual assignments for each student, that methodology allows reaching high results in mathematic training. The second based on the organization of student self-studies and applies mostly to underperforming students and allows them to learn how to solve tasks, which are necessary to pass the math exam. Solution’s auto-check system and the ability to generate hints in automatic mode helps to reduce the load on the teacher, as eliminating a large amount of verification work and after-hours assistance to students.
