Okay, so I thought everything was working okay, but now I am not so sure.
When I use the maxima response it only seems to work in the context author.
When I try it as a student or CC, nothing happens. The submission box gets
cleared and their is no feedback from loncapa. As author it works just fine=
.
Here's the file in question:
/res/vcu/jmsullivan/math/poly_rational_functions/poly_frm_polyfromzeros01.p=
roblem
Any tips about what I'm doing wrong?
Best,
Jay
