I tried writing an if statement like this:

if (filter_has_var(INPUT_POST, 'hw1')) {
      $hw1 = filter_input(INPUT_POST, 'hw1');
}
else {
      $hw1 = 100;      
}

But Its not working. I get this error message:

Notice: Use of undefined constant hw1 - assumed 'hw1' in /home/tleithof/htdocs/gradebook.php on line 13

Warning: filter_has_var() expects exactly 2 parameters, 1 given in /home/tleithof/htdocs/gradebook.php on line 13

Can someone please inform how to use this function corrently?? Thanks
