We are excited to let you know that you are now able to create your own problems and include them as part of your assignments.
The following instructions describe how you go about to get started and create your very first problem.

1. Click on the tab Content. You are not presented with a page containing all the content on Magma Math.

2. Go to your book. On the far right, you will find a column called My Book. Click on "Go to My Book".

3. Add question. To add a question/problem, begin by clicking on '+ Add question' in the top right hand corner. You will now be presented with a form, shown below. The following instructions will help you fill out the form, step by step.

  • Add image (not mandatory). If you would like the problem to include an image, click here to upload. You can remove or edit if you change your mind.

  • Problem description (mandatory). This is where you fill out the description of your problem, e.g. '4+8'. If you choose to have multiple subproblems (read about subproblems further down), this text could just be simple instructions like 'Find x' where each subproblem could be different problems.

  • Add answer OR Add subproblem (mandatory). If you only want one problem and answer, choose Add answer. If you intend to have multiple problems (a, b, c, ...), choose Add subproblem.

If you choose Add answer: You will now be presented with a choice of what type of answer you would like:

  1. Write by hand: The students will write the answer. This answer must not include spaces. At the very bottom of this article you can find a guide for how to express fractions, exponents etc.

  2. Multiple choice with one correct answer. The students will be presented with choices. You can add as many options you like but can only select one correct answer.

  3. Multiple choice with multiple correct answers. Similar to the above but you may select multiple correct options. Please note: This means that the students will need to select all of the correct options to answer correct.

If you choose to select Add subproblem: You may add as many subproblems as you like. Each subproblem requires a description and answer. Instructions of how to specify these can be found in the paragraphs about Problem description and Add answer.

  • Level (mandatory). You choose the difficulty level (1 = Easy, 2 = Medium, 3 = Hard) for the entire problem. The reason we ask for this is to make it easier for you to find the problem when you browse your problems and when you create exercises.

4. Save! When you are satisfied with the problem, press Save. If a required field has not been filled out you will be notified about this and it needs to be corrected before the problem is stored in your section.

Once the problem is created you will find it below the section where you chose to create it. If, for any reason, you wish to edit or delete the problem you can do that by clicking on the dots next to that problem.

If you have any thoughts, questions or suggestions for improvements, please let us know.
