HI all,
 Just a comment about formula response. I used it for several
years with no difficulty by 
1) telling student to enter the formula as they would in a calculator
2) giving a sample response, formatted as it would be on the screen.
Did not have any student complaints (500 student class)

Quoting Guy Albertelli II <guy@albertelli.com>:
