The weak Galerkin finite element method is a novel numerical method that was first proposed and analyzed by Wang and Ye (2011) for general second order elliptic problems on triangular meshes. The goal of this paper is to conduct a computational investigation for the weak Galerkin method for various model problems with more general finite element partitions. The numerical results confirm the theory established in Wang and Ye (2011). The results also indicate that the weak Galerkin method is efficient, robust, and reliable in scientific computing.
