I split the parts into 3 separate questions with subparts. I am not sure how to name these so it is still obvious they are supposed to follow one another so I numbered them for now.

Saved a checkpoint:
Lovely question, but it could be split into three separate questions. In particular, I'd like to be able to submit my answers for each of the sums in part a without completing the rest.

 The multiplication questions I got in part a) were enormous and I doubt that someone would even try to do that in their head, opting instead for a calculator. If they do use a calculator, I don't think they will gain the understanding from this question that it is designed to instil.
 I see you have set the marks for each question in a) as 0.25/question. I think this might be a little low and it looks a little strange when you get all the questions correct to only get 1.75 marks for doing 7 questions, regardless of the difficulty of the actual questions.
 Part b statement does not require a colon. I think it should be a full stop instead.
 I think the tables in the advice are excellent, and a really good idea.
 In the advice, you do not need the 4th word.
 In part b) of the advice, I think I would capitalise the second "Symbol", even though it might not be correct, it will look better. Maybe full stop each of the Symbol lines to make it correct.
 Just a suggestion, but you could create some sort of number line to show your answer in part b)ii).
 Make sure to full stop after i), ii) and iii) in part b) advice.

Which part is it that only works for you sometimes?
In (b), on the final line, you have two equations inline. I'm not sure why, as they could be merged but, as a result, \displaystyle not applied to the second.
In the advice in part (a), I think I would put the information and examples into a table, with columns for the sign of the first and second number, a column for the resulting sign, and an example. This would help the student to pick out patterns.
"press the symbol S⇔D" seems too specific, as my calculator certainly doesn't have that button.
When describing the mixed number, I think this needs to be broken down further. Start with e.g. 8 = 8 x 1 = 8 x 8/8 = 64/8 to explain where the first term comes from.
Rather than the horizontal lines in the advice it would be better to give the answers to each part and bring up the rules as they occur. For example in part (c) the rules that you describe are relevant for the second and third gap respectively. You could add subnumbering i),ii),iii) to each expression to help with referencing.

For me, it only seems to work sometimes. I am still trying to figure it out.

Did you do something to make the revealed answers for part c work? It looks OK on my PC now.

Test that the marking algorithm works
Check that the marking algorithm works with different sets of variables and student answers using the interface below.
Create unit tests to save expected results and to document how the algorithm should work.
There's an error which means the marking algorithm can't run:

To account for errors made by the student in earlier calculations, replace question variables with answers to earlier parts.
In order to create a variable replacement, you must define at least one variable and one other part.
Variable  Answer to use  Must be answered?  

The variable replacements you've chosen will cause the following variables to be regenerated each time the student submits an answer to this part:
These variables have some random elements, which means they're not guaranteed to have the same value each time the student submits an answer. You should define new variables to store the random elements, so that they remain the same each time this part is marked.
