Sub and superscript

I have been using columns, fill in the blanks, interactive videos, quiz etc with great success. I am a chemistry teacher and often need to include subscript <sub> and superscript <sup> in questions/answers. Currently this functionality is not available in many editors but it would make the content so much more powerful for teaching science and maths.

Hi Veg!

Have you considered to use LaTeX with all the fancy shenanigans you can do with it?

Would you like to be able to display chemistry formulas in your question texts only OR enable the students to use such formatting in their answers too?

I had been thinking just about the questions. But looking further forward if students could have this functionality too that would be helpful.

Putting superscripts and subscripts in questions can easily be achieved by the teacher by having at the ready a website with the necessary codes, for copy-paste. There are many, I have used Please note that I do NOT use the Alt codes themselves, I simply copy (and paste) the super/subscripts in my question text.

It is also not a problem in such questions as MULTIPLE CHOICE, etc. where the student only has to click or drag & drop, not type their answer.

Requiring the students to do the same when typing their answers is more complicated. You could direct them to a website with the necessary codes, as mentioned above, but the easiest thing is to provide them with a complete list of those super/subscripts that they will need in their answers.

I am attaching 2 screenshots from H5P contents I have just created as POC (Proof Of Concept). Screenshot #1 is a multiple choice and #2 a Fill in the Blanks.

That is really helpful, thank you!
