answering open questions in geogebra applets

geouser shared this question 12 years ago

Hello everybody,

I don't know if this is the appropriate forum and if this is an appropriate question, but I would like to know if there is the possibility of a better interaction with user in Geogebra.

I'm trying to create a web applet were my students answer a numeric question. At the moment, the only possibilities I know is using an slider, so the student moves the slider to the correct answer, or a checking box. The problem is that I don't want the students to choose, I want them to write the correct number.

Is there the possibility that the student introduces a number in a box and geogebra assigns the value of a variable to the answer in the box?

I am working with Scratch and this question is very easy to do, so I don't know if it could be solved also in Geogebra.

Thanks in advance!

With 3.2 this can be done via Javascript (see and the linked examples), you can also try 4.0 beta which introduces textboxes.


Nice example Noel, I could follow it even though I have no French.

Here is a way of doing it using the input bar.
