Really challenge your students with Maplegraded,
Math App, and HTML questions that
satisfy a range of STEM disciplines:
MapleGraded
Harness the computational power of the Maple™ math engine which includes facilities for algebra, calculus, differential equations, discrete mathematics, statistics, numerical computation, and many other areas of STEM.
Pull sophisticated and professionally authored Maplegraded questions from the Möbius Content Templates to use out of the box or modify to suit your class.
Math App
Take advantage of the interactive capabilities and sophisticated grading code of Math App worksheets.
This question acts as a type of specialized calculator for all areas of STEM where students can manipulate different components on the Math App worksheet such as moving sliders, rotating dials, or dragging elements to either submit its final state as their response or use it simply for ungraded exploration and discovery.
HTML
Elevate your question authoring with HTML questions by incorporating material from other STEM content sources and morphing it using Möbius into a question that can then be graded.
Additionally, author highly interactive and elaborate questions from scratch using the limitless capabilities of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript code.
Incorporate these other stimulating Möbius STEM question types
to maximize your pool of interactive questions:

Clickable Image
Test your students’ ability to identify visual elements by clicking on image hotspots overlaid on an image of your choice.

Document Upload
Gain insights into your students’ thought processes by viewing the offline portion of their response.
 Upload tools within Möbius permit students to submit a range of document files alongside the rest of their online attempt
 You can decide to grade the student’s document or just use it to understand their approach to a question

Essay
Grade students’ long answer responses, mathematical proofs, or other types of longform responses that students can create using a range of formatting tools including the ability to insert mathematical notation.
 Grading a long answer response is easy with the ability to insert comments right inside of the essay response, apply word limits, and highlight keywords

Free Body Diagram
Ask your students to draw free body diagrams to demonstrate their understanding of forces, angles, and control points when it comes to ramps, pulleys, carts, trusses, bridges, waves, mechanics, atoms and chemistry, astronomy, and other static or dynamic problems.

List
Create a classic fillintheblank style question with two input modes that you can choose from: a dropdown menu or a text entry field.

Matching
Have your students associate text, images, or math elements from one list with the elements of another, with the order of the matching options shuffled each time the question is asked.

Mathematical Formula
Assess your students’ abilities easily when it comes to inputting mathematical expressions or equations as well as chemical equations using the 10 subtypes of the mathematical formula question.
 Natural math notation is used alongside an easytouse Equation Editor to simplify input for both you and your students
 Accommodate a range of student responses with an impressive answerequivalence checker

Multiple Choice
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

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

Sketching
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 pointandclick Sketch Board that supports clickanddrag 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 predrawn curve really adds to the advantages of this question type

Sorting
Include a sorting question where students can clickanddrag 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

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