How can I create a question in canvas quiz where students can give their answer in scientific notation? This is a very basic functionality, but I cant figure out how to do it in canvas.

hmm that doesnt help. I want t he students to type scientific notation. That old post doesnt explain how to do that. It states that the browser converts enotation to decimal.

I want to give students a decimal and have them write scientific notation.

Supposedly you can do this with a numeric answer with Precision. But, I cannot get it to work. Even with precision of 10 or 16, it was rounding 1.45e-5 to zero. Very frustrating.
