Buzz: Product Feedback
It would be very helpful if Buzz could recognize equations instead of just expressions. Right now, I can only think of 2 ways to enter equations. One is to have the students type them is as text. This is a mess though. If I want 2x+1=4 Buzz will mark it wrong if there is a space anywhere in the equation or if they use a capital x or if they flip the two sides of the equal sign, or even it they write 1+2x=4. Making a list of all of the possible answers would be huge! Just transposing the 3 terms would yield 4 possible answers. Each of those would have spaces everywhere or sporadically interspersed throughout the equation. That's dozens of alternate correct answers to enter.
My preferred work-around is to make the question multiple fill-in-the-blank with the option of match expression (see below). Then I only have 2 possible answers for each side. The problem is that a Buzz would count 2x+1=2x+1 or 4=4 correct. I need Buzz to recognize the equal sign and know what needs to go on each side, preferably with the options Match and Equivalent available.
1) Type the equation `2x+1=4`.
