Formulas question type for Moodle

This is a question type plugin for Moodle with random values and multiple answer fields.

The answer fields can be placed anywhere in the question so that we can create questions involving various answer structures such as coordinate, polynomial and matrix.

Other features such as unit checking and multiple subquestions are also available.

These functionalities can simplify the creation of questions in many fields related to mathematics, numbers and units, such as physics and engineering.

This question type was written by Hon Wai Lau and versions for Moodle 1.9 and 2.0 are still available at the original author website at the date of this writting https://code.google.com/p/moodle-coordinate-question/downloads/list

This question type was upgraded to the new question engine introduced in Moodle 2.1 by Jean-Michel Vedrine

This version is compatible with Moodle 2.6 and ulterior versions.
