We are haveing a hard time with formula response problems and would like some
advise. We want to have the students enter he entire equation as an answer.
For example, if the problem was:
"Write the equation of the line that has a slope of 2 and a y-intercept of 1."
The students could enter y=2x+1 or they could enter 1=y-2x or something else.
Does anyone have a similar problem coded open source that we could look at?
Thank You
