In particular I am using the ImplicitPlane context and the equation the student enters is automatically simplified before it gets displayed at the top of the WebWork problem. Here's my code:
reduceConstants=>0, # no decimals
reduceFunctions=>0, # combine 4+5*2?
formatStudentAnswer=>'parsed', # no decimals
$ans1 = ImplicitPlane("$a+x=$b*x");
I thought that the formatStudentAnswer=>'parsed' should force the student answer to be displayed as it was entered.
How can I accomplish what I want?
It seems there should be an option for formatStudentAnswer that will display the answer entered as it was really entered.
