      Description

      Hi Wilma, I believe that SAM-3330 will get back into 12 before the release or at least shortly after. It changes up how calculated questions work slightly from what it documented here.

      https://longsight.screenstepslive.com/s/sakai_help/m/59830/l/610476-how-do-i-create-a-calculated-question

      In the section "Keep in mind"

      This changes from

      Valid Operators: + - * / ^ ()
      You can use the following math functions: SIN, COS, TAN, ASIN, ACOS, ATAN, ABS, EXP, SIGN, SQRT, FACTORIAL, LOG10, LOG, and LN.
      

      To:

      Valid Operators: + - * / ^ ! # ( ) 
      You can use the following math functions: SIN, COS, TAN, ASIN, ACOS, ATAN, ABS, EXP, SGN, SQRT, LOG10, and LN.
      

      It might be worth linking out to

      mathparser.org/mxparser-math-collection/

      for the full set of valid math functions and operators.

      Thanks!
