Hi, I'm currently designing a question (with 3 to 4 sub-questions) for my students using Formula Question. I would like to know how can I reuse a randomly generated number (say [x] = 100) in the first sub-question to the second sub-question. For some reasons, these four questions have some connections. I need to reuse the randomly generated number.…(Show moreShow less)
Perhaps I'm missing them, but I'm looking for ways to write line segments, lines, and rays in correct notation with the equation editor and I can't find them under the headings. Are they some place? If not, will these eventually be available?
I'e been using GeoGebra with my math classes (online, 7th-12th grade) for several years. Here's how I use it: With students: When students need to generate a graph (usually of a function) as part of an assignment, I recommend that they create the graph in GeoGebra and take a screenshot (several different programs/website work for this, so I…
Hello, Canvas folks. Our little company is looking for people who would be willing to field test a new math product that we are working on. It extends the functionality of Canvas to that of a MyMathLab or WebAssign. It is 100% embedded within canvas via LTI, with no need for access cards or separate accounts for students or instructors. It's a…(Show moreShow less)
Synopsis This blog post will show how to look up values in a formula question that can't be generated directly. In particular, it will show how to look up critical values from a student's T distribution to generate a confidence interval. It is extendable to other situations. Introduction I was trying to create a formula question that would ask…(Show moreShow less)
I'm the Canvas admin for our school district and I've been put on the team for our Middle and High School Math adoption committee. I was wondering if anyone has any experience with Math curriculum that will interface with Canvas. Whether they have an LTI compatible app or some Common Cartridge materials that can be loaded up into Canvas. Really…(Show moreShow less)
I am trying to figure out a way to use formulas to ask questions regarding solving quadratic functions. I wrote some questions that ask for the discriminant but am stuck on how to write any relating to solving a quadratic. Thanks for any help, Julie
Thank you so much! I was running into all the problems you stated, that is why I thought I would reach out & see if there was a way I overlooked. I was able to write questions giving the roots and asking for the coefficients of a certain term (quadratic, linear, or the constant). Almost all of my assessments are formula generated but sometimes…
Hi there, Brett Harring Welcome to the Community! I can't say I directly know the answer to your question here, but I have shared it with our Teaching Math in Canvas group! This will give your question more exposure and allow for more minds to collaborate on an answer to help make your quiz/ test a success. PreviewHide preview
Trying to create a quiz/test item using the distributive property. I am familiar with the formula question to create different numbers over the same concept so no students see the same question, but cannot figure out how to use this without the formula demanding a value for x if I put [a](x+[b]) for the expression. Any one figure this out?
I am using MyMathLab integrated within Canvas, and can't seem to solve an issue I am having with the gradebook. MyMathLab grades import/sync in to Canvas automatically. Love this! However, I am having issues with the point designations. As the assignments import in to Canvas, each point value is being designated based on the number of questions…(Show moreShow less)
