Factorise a quadratic
The student is asked to factorise a quadratic $x^2 + ax + b$. A custom marking script uses pattern matching to ensure that the student's answer is of the form $(x+a)(x+b)$, $(x+a)^2$, or $x(x+a)$.
To find the script, look in the Scripts tab of part a.

Mark the product of two matrices in a mathematical expression part
A mathematical expression part whose answer is the product of two matrices, $X \times Y$.
By setting the "variable value generator" option for $X$ and $Y$ to produce random matrices, we can ensure that the order of the factors in the student's answer matters: $X \times Y \neq Y \times X$.

Gordon's copy of Deirdre's copy of Ask for significand and exponent of a number in scientific notation separately
This question shows how to ask for a number in scientific notation, by asking for the significand and exponent separately and using a custom marking algorithm in the gapfill part to put the two pieces together.
Answers not in standard form, i.e. with a significand not in $[1,10)$, are accepted but given partial marks.

Johan's copy of Mark equations
All the answers in this question are equations. In order to mark each equation, Numbas needs to pick some values that satisfy the equation and some that don't, and check that the student's answer agrees with the expected answer.
Any equation with the same solution set as the expected answer will be marked correct.
