Generate a practice math quiz with Math Assistant in OneNote

Quiz yourself on math concepts by generating a practice quiz based on an equation you're solving. Math Assistant will work with Microsoft Forms to create a practice quiz of up to 20 questions featuring similar problems to your original problem, then embed it on your OneNote page. You can create as many practice quizzes as you like.


Create a practice quiz from any math problem

OneNote can generate problems that are similar to those you're assigned to help you practice the steps of solving equations. 

Your browser does not support video.
  1. First, solve your equation using Math Assistant.

  2. Next, select Generate a practice quiz.

    You may be prompted to sign into Microsoft Forms using your school account.

  3. Type in the number of questions you'd like to be included in your practice quiz. You may enter up to 20.

  4. Select Generate quiz. Microsoft Forms will automatically insert the quiz onto your open OneNote page.

    You can interact with the quiz entirely in OneNote, or click the Microsoft Forms link to take the quiz at instead.

    To take the quiz, select an answer for each multiple choice question and select Submit. From there, select View results to see your score and the questions you answered correctly and incorrectly.

Select Generate a practice quiz.

Type in the number of questions for the practice quiz.

What types of equations can be generated in a practice quiz?

You can generate a practice quiz for the types of equations below. The generated quiz will provide  problems similar to the equation you entered with solutions that are responsive to the same types and scale of numbers (integers, rational or real numbers) that were entered with the problem and wrong “distraction” answers that take into account frequent mistakes when solving that type of problem. The following list works best for integer coefficients and integer solutions. 


  • Addition (with or without regrouping)

  • Subtraction (with or without regrouping) 

  • Multiplication

  • Division

Example equations read: 5+3, 12+26, 37+45, 328+214 example equations read: 9-4, 18-12, 25-16, 764-124, 637-248

Equations and inequalities

  • Linear equations

    • Elementary linear equations such as:


example equations read: ax=b, a+x+b, ax+b=c, a(x+b)=c

  • Quadratic equations (supports rational and complex solutions)

    • Standard form, as pictured here. 

When you generate a quiz, practice questions will reflect the equation you insert. If you insert an equation with integer solutions, you will have similar equations in your quiz.

If you enter an equation with complex solutions, your quiz will create only quadratic equations with complex solutions. 

  • Equations in the form:


a list of example quadratic equations read ax^2+bx+c=0, 2x^2-2x-1=0 solutions x=-3, x=4, x^2+2x+5=0 solutions x=1+2i, x=1-2i

example equation reads: ax^4+bx^2+c=0

  • Linear inequalities

    • Elementary linear equations such as:

example equations read: ax+b>c, ax+b<c

  • Quadratic inequalities

    • Standard form, as pictured

example equations read: ax^2 +bx+c>0, ax^2+bx+c <0

Note: The following types of equations can be used to create a practice quiz, but the incorrect "distraction" answers will not be based upon common errors.


  • Arithmetic expressions

Example equations read: 2.5+3.6, 2/5 +3/5, 2&2/3*2.3

  • Expand

equation: x squared minus 3 over 3x squared minus 27

  • Factor


equation: x squared plus x minus 12 over 3x squared minus 6x plus 3

  • Differentiate (only available for polynomials)

equation: 2x to the 3rd plus 3 (x+1) squared

  • Integrate (only available for polynomials)

equation: 3x squared (x squared minus 1)

  • Equations and inequalities

Example equations read: 3x to the third minus 24x squared minus 39x plus 420 = 0
