If you successfully solve a Problem Set without using any of the you will receive a bonus of 3%.
Don't be misled by the fact that the problems are delivered via a browser: you should carefully solve all problems on a piece of paper.
It seems unlikely to me, given what I've read in the media and what I've heard from students.
However, I'm not in a great position to evaluate this for myself.
In my classes, I use an open-source system rather than Mastering Physics, and I also haven't paid for access to Chegg, so although I can search for the text of a problem in a printed book and see it pop up in Chegg, I can't see what the solution is.
I also don't have access to the text of the problems in Mastering Physics, so I can't search on the text of those problems.
Stack Exchange network consists of 175 Q&A communities including Stack Overflow, the largest, most trusted online community for developers to learn, share their knowledge, and build their careers. Back in the 90's, people teaching freshman physics were pioneers in creating open-source systems such as LON-CAPA for checking students' homework answers.
Today the use of open-source or home-grown systems has become uncommon and has largely been replaced by the use of Mastering Physics, a product of Pearson which functions both as a revenue stream for the publisher (students pay per semester) and as a way of killing off used textbook sales.
