Assess your students’ abilities easily when it comes to inputting mathematical expressions or equations as well as chemical equations using the 10 sub-types of the mathematical formula question.

  • Natural math notation is used alongside an easy-to-use Equation Editor to simplify input for both you and your students
  • Accommodate a range of student responses with an impressive answer-equivalence checker
question types gif

Lean on this dependable question type to evaluate your students’ abilities to discern the right answer from the wrong ones where multiple choice options can be composed of text, math, images, videos, audio clips, and more.

  • You can then take this classic question type and really challenge your students’ understanding by allowing them to select more than one correct answer, and randomizing the display order of the answer options each time they view the question
  • Promote a truly educational experience by customizing the feedback for each answer option so that your students will always receive insights regardless of their selection
question types gif

Require your students to provide a numeric value and optionally specify that a unit of measure is to be included.

  • Built-in Möbius libraries accept physical units of measure and equivalents from the SI/Metric, Imperial, and US Customary unit systems
  • Be specific in the accepted notation styles for student responses relating to the thousands separator, the dollar sign, scientific notation, and the ability for students to respond with arithmetic
  • Easily control the grading tolerance of student responses by choosing to require absolute accuracy, a set number of significant figures, a percentage tolerance, and more
question types gif

Use the sketch response area to evaluate your students’ curve sketching skills when it comes to plotting aspects such as parabolas, exponentials, asymptotes, lines, points, piecewise functions, open and closed intervals, regions, and more.

  • You and your students can plot curves using a simple and customizable point-and-click Sketch Board that supports click-and-drag functionality, allowing plotted points and curves to be relocated as needed
  • The ability for you as the instructor to draw background curves and ask your students to perform tasks relating to that pre-drawn curve really adds to the advantages of this question type
question types gif

Include a sorting question where students can click-and-drag items to rearrange them into the correct order.

  • The sortable objects can be text, images, HTML, symbolic math, and more, and you have full control over the size, color, and number of objects to be sorted

Test your students’ understanding with a traditional true or false question featuring two radio buttons for the choices “True” and “False”.

  • Clickable Image
  • Document Upload
  • Essay
  • Free Body Diagram
  • List
  • Matching
  • Mathematical Formula
  • Multiple Choice
  • Numeric
  • Sketching
  • Sorting
  • True/False

Transform Möbius questions into
algorithmic and
adaptive forms to truly
make your STEM
questions limitless!

Adaptive Questions

Navigate your students through supported learning by intelligently identifying their level of comprehension and expertise. Möbius reacts to the student’s responses and then guides the student through different question paths such as:

  • A simpler version of the question
  • A step-by-step guide of how to solve the problem
  • And other pedagogical paths!

Algorithmic Questions

Never ask the same question twice by converting your static questions into algorithmic questions using the Möbius math engine and a huge library of built-in algorithmic commands.

  • Author a question once with an algorithm that Möbius then uses to generate a bottomless bank of question variations based on the algorithmic parameters that you define
  • Prevent answer sharing between students while ensuring that your students understand the educational concept instead of just memorizing the correct answers
  • There’s no need to be a programmer when you can optionally work from a friendly point-and-click interface to build your algorithm!

With a variety of STEM questions that can be upgraded to algorithmic and adaptive forms, Möbius optimizes the delivery of STEM questions to your students.
