mathceleb,

Out of curiosity what language / package are you using to produce the well structured calculation steps in your programs. Are you manually writing the code to arrange the stings for fractions etc? I would like to use a similar format in some of my programs so that calculation steps can be followed to validate my results.

For a lesson like this, there are a certain amount of steps which never change. For other lessons, it's a conditional amount of steps and loops based on conditions by problem.

With respect to fractions, I created 3 functions which handle my 3 types of fractions.

We have proportions which is a/b = c/d where the equal sign can be anything such as an approximation sign ~.

We have a = b/c

and we have the general fraction a/b.

All fraction functions center the results horizontally.

I did generic tables with a bottom border for the top cell. Nothing else special is going on with these. Essentially, anytime I need to produce a fraction display, I call one of my 3 functions from my function list I include on every page on my website.
