Math Input/Cell Content Evaluate as Fraction (Not Decimal)

Is it possible to change how desmos evaluates student input so that a fraction appears instead of a decimal? We are working with slopes, so a fraction is preferred. If not, is there some sort of work-around?


Instead of .428… I want to see 3/7.


So I used this (on slide 1) as a work-around from what I found on the internet…but it’s not as user friendly as the original slide.

I didn’t get to see your original slide, but I saw this posted on Twitter yesterday that might help. You can still use the math input and then pull the values from the calculator to the note component. Set disableEvaluation to true to avoid showing the decimal.
