I am having the user solve the equation, and will be giving partial credit for the first step. Any first step will do, but they should not get credit for just copying the problem.
This is a small portion of the code. This is NOT the activity, but it demonstrates what I am trying to accomplish.
It seems to be handling the header row latex differently than the cells below.
UPDATE: I did a workaround where you put the equation in the code, and then put the problem into the header, instead of the other way around. But still a little curious.
