I am planning to type my responses for the exam but the keyboard shortcuts College Board provided for AP Stats looks like it would be time consuming. So I am planning on using the equation editor on google docs when necessary. When I submit my answers, could I paste my response or do I have to upload the file for it instead?
I’m not 100% sure about this, but my best guess would be that you would be unable to copy-paste Google Docs that include the equation editor. An easy workaround would be to download your Google Doc as a PDF and upload it as a text file, as you mention. That will definitely work, so I’d make that my first option.
