Graphing an x=# that students input

I want student to type in the equation of a quadratic, which means they need to type in x=# into the math input area. I have not yet been able to figure out how to have computation layer automatically graph that input in the graph on that slide. Any solutions that I am missing?

In the CL documentation:

If you scroll down to the “function” sink of graph and click on “Try It!” there’s an example where it graphs an equation based on a math input. I’m not quite sure, is that what you’re looking for?

In graph CL:

function("f"): simpleFunction(input.latex)

In your graph:

simpleFunction defaults in terms of x, so if you want x=, you need your function in terms of y:

function("f"): simpleFunction(input.latex,"y")

Something in standard form, you want to use parseEquation. A little more complicated, but still doable.
