The E-Learning Heroes Challenge #71 challenges us to create an interaction to teach math concepts. Being a math teacher as well as an instructional designer, this challenge has appealed to me. I decided that updating and modifying my initial challenge from ELH #116 was the perfect way to complete this challenge. When I asked for feedback from the e-Learning Heroes community in ELH#116, some people suggested that I change the questions to allow for drag and drop with actual coins instead of typing the answer in a numeric text entry box.
This version challenged me in that it definitely uses more variables than I’ve ever used in a single course before, but it also forced me to use more logic in building the drag and drop so that it would allow for multiple variations of the answer.
