What programming languages does Möbius use?
How do I know what functions I can use to author algorithmic questions?
What if I don't know how to write an algorithm from scratch?
What if I don't know how to author interactive content?
Where can I use the LaTeX scientific typesetting language?
Here are some frequently asked questions when it comes to authoring Möbius content:
TIP: Check out FAQs for instructors for additional frequently asked questions about class and user management.
When it comes to authoring algorithmic content in Möbius, the accepted algorithmic syntax uses a language that's unique to Möbius (though it's loosely based on Java).
TIP: Check out the Follow Algorithm Editor syntax rules help topic for more help on the accepted syntax during algorithm authoring that's unique to Möbius. You can also view the Use proper math syntax during question authoring help topic for additional details on how to define your correct answer with proper syntax.
In addition, whenever Maple calls are used within algorithms, Maple syntax is required.
In other parts of Möbius, you can also use these other languages:
TIP: Check out the Enter MathML or LaTeX section of the Work with the Equation Editor (instructor) help topic for more details on using these languages in Möbius.
Check out View available functions for algorithmic questions to learn about the built-in functions within Möbius that you can use to author algorithmic questions.
You can use the Algorithm Designer to author a question algorithm without needing to directly use algorithmic syntax.
Check out Create question algorithms using the Algorithm Designer.
You can import a Content Template into your activity to help you with:
- Maple grading code
- Writing question algorithms
- Incorporating interactive content
Content Template — A collection of pre-authored content designed to help instructors and authors customize existing Content Packs or build new content from scratch in way that takes advantage of the key capabilities of Möbius.
Check out Import a Content Template.
TIP: You can also import pre-built Content Packs to support you in your content authoring.
Content Pack — High-quality content that provides you with pre-authored lessons, assignments, and Policy Sets that are ready to deploy to your students.
Check out Import a Content Pack.
You can enter symbolic math expressions using LaTeX during question authoring.
Check out Work with LaTeX.
