equivLiteral- Checks if the response from the student is literally equal to the correct response. This means that the form, order, elements, and values should match. Responses that are mathematically equal, but are in a form other than the one specified by authors, will return false. Use equivLiteral when you want to specify a particular form of the mathematical expression as the correct answer.

EquivSymbolic- The equivSymbolic method checks that the value entered by the student is mathematically equivalent to the value that the Author has set in validation, even if they are in different forms.  Use equivSymbolic when working with equations, or other input with variables, where order or form is not important. For example, if the task is to multiply 3 and 2, any response that is mathematically equal to 6 will be considered as correct.  equivSymbolic accepts decimals, fractions, variables, and percentage.

EquivValue- Compares numerical values that may be represented in different ways, such as 1m = 100cm. equivValue will evaluate the expression to a numerical form for comparison. As long as the value given by the student is mathematically equal to the result the author was expecting, the question will validate as correct.
