When a self-paced question is created, and the division sign is added to the question (such as 8 (division sign) 1) the division sign appears on a new line of the ActivExpression screen, and pushes other characters off the Expression screen. There is no way to scroll up and down the screen, so students can not see what to divide the first number by.
The page that is having trouble is page 6 – the division
page. As you can see in the image below, the division sign has been used
(via the “equation symbol maker.”) Sadly, when the vote is started only
the first number and the division sign show up on the ActivExpression
screen. If I take the division sign out of the question and replace
it with another character (not from the equation symbol maker) such as
“/” all numbers appear on the ActivExpression screen.
