Setup:
We define a few sequences and a subroutine for calculating them. (We could have used MathObjects formulas to do this, but decided not to.)
Then, we define an array of graphs and add the plots of the sequences to them. We create an array
We create a |
BEGIN_TEXT \{ ColumnTable( "Match the graphs with the corresponding formulas.". $ml->print_q() # no period! , # comma! $BCENTER. $ml->print_a(). $BR. "(Click on a graph to enlarge it)". $ECENTER # no period! , # comma! indent => 0, separation => 30, valign => "TOP" ) \} END_TEXT |
Main Text:
We use a |
install_problem_grader(~~&std_problem_grader); $showPartialCorrectAnswers = 0; ANS(str_cmp($ml->ra_correct_ans)); foreach my $i (0..3) { $a[$i] = $ml->ra_correct_ans->[$i]; } BEGIN_SOLUTION $PAR SOLUTION $PAR The formulas match as follows: 1 matches graph $a[0], 2 matches graph $a[1], 3 matches graph $a[2], and 4 matches graph $a[3]. END_SOLUTION ENDDOCUMENT(); |
Answer Evaluation:
The answer evaluation is as expected. We can access the correct answers, store them in a variable, and use them in the solution via |
