WeBWork v. Canvas

We have a math faculty (actually several) who really like WeBWork. If you're not familiar with WeBWork, it's an LMS developed by mathematicians. (Welcome to WeBWorK ). It's a free, open-source product that includes lots of homework questions and answer sets. Really bred for mathematics.

 

Now my question: Have any campuses found suitable surrogates for WeBWork that can be added to Canvas? Canvas isn't bred for math-based homework like WeBWork, but we're hoping to locate products or resources that my be a compromise, yet keep the faculty within the Canvas ecosystem. I realize there are textbook compendium resources, but I'm not sure those would be comparable to WeBWork.
