Luis,
There are two ways to use the tool. (1) you can do a one-off conversion of a particular STACK question, or (2) servers which have the plugin installed have an extra page where a one-off conversion is done on a block of text (the "cas chat" page). The converter is not available elsewhere in Moodle.

The STACK question type includes a tool to convert dollars into \(...\) and \[...\]. I suggest you convert, rather than support $s in MathJAX. ..read more

I'm using STACK for working with students at a secondary level in Australia. Context is Distance education and I'm currently working on very low level mathematics (SACE Essential Mathematics). The plan is to try and expand into the higher levels of mathematics with my current school. Previously I worked on a pilot project at the University of Queensland in a 'bridging' course working at approximately the (QCAA Mathematical Methods) level which is probably more in line with what you're looking at doing.
I'm very keen to connect and share what I've learned and hear where yo ..read more

I've been trying to have dollar signs work as delimiters for math content in Moodle (version 4.1.11). After a lot of Googling I've found a suggested configuration that I thought worked:
I am fairly sure I tested it and it worked for a while, but not it does not. The strange thing is that $ works as a delimiter as long as I also have the default backslash-parentheses delimiters in the same text!
I tried using a more recent version of MathJax, but then nothing worked...
Any suggestions? I have a lot of math text with $ as delimiters that I would like to ..read more

Here at Catalyst-EU we are working on some ideas for the STACK question type. As part of that we are developing some questions for questions aimed at GCSE/A Level students. We will be sharing these questions publicly, but I was wondering if there are other people in this area who would be interested in Collaborating on this ..read more

Thanks for reply, so is there any other method one can take matrix as answer and compare it numerically? I changed the response verification method to `AlgEquiv` and it worked on a dummy case scenario, but it's not gonna be helpful because the elements in the real case are numerical ..read more

Yes, by design, that answer test checks if the student's answer is a decimal number. By using the matrix input the student's answer is a matrix, which is a different "type" of object. You cannot use this answer test in conjunction with the matrix input. (We've already had requests to extend the answer test to _elements_ of a matrix, but it's not yet implemented)
Sorry about that ..read more

Can someone explain what is happening here, the student input is matrix as follows and the teacher's answers is a matrix and I use `NumAbsolute` as a comparison method, why is it giving my that my answer is not decimal? ..read more
