    Activity Overview

    The goal of this activity is to learn how to upload PDF files of your work to the ADAPT platform of LibreText so it can be graded.  You will make this two ways, by taking pictures with your cell phone and converting those to PDF, or by writing in a Google Doc and converting that to a PDF. There will be several steps, and note, if you have a scanner that converts to PDF you can use that instead of the Genius Cell phone app, but the images must be in PDF format.  Each answer must be a different page of the PDF, and if they are hand written scans, you must print your name and date and then sign it.  There are several steps to todays activity.

    1. Write on a sheet of paper the following equation, and under it write today's date, print and sign your signature.
      \[\%Salt=\left (\frac{m_S}{m_S+m_W}  \right )100\]
    2. Write on a new sheet of paper the following

    I understand I need to be able to upload files to ADAPT and my grade will be influenced by the clarity of the files I upload.  I will sign and date all scanned files to indicate they are my work.    Under that statement write: today's date, print and sign your name.

    1. Download and Install Genius Scan App to your cell phone (you may omit this if you have a scanner that will convert your images to a PDF file)
    2. Take PDF scans of the  your work in steps 1 & 2, with each problem being on a separate scan.  If using Genius scan, feel free to make multiple images of each equation, and when you upload you can choose the best one to submit as your answer.
    3. Go to ADAPT,
      • Upload the files as stated in the next section.  Be sure to upload PDFs and not image files.

    Upload Files to ADAPT

    Upload as PDF

    If you already have an app that can scan multiple pages as one document, and you are comfortable using it you can use it. If not, see section Genius Scan.

    5. Select the "Upload your question file submissions from a full PDF that Adapt will cut up for you" option

    6. Click "Browse" and select the PDF file you would like to upload

    7. Click "Submit"

    10. Move to the next question and Click on Upload New File again. You don't have to upload your PDF file again.

    11. Repeat steps 8-10


    Upload as Image

    5. Take one picture per question. If you have 4 questions in your quiz you need four pictures, each of them clearly showing your answer to one of the questions.
