This is certainly not the expected behavior of any of the teaching languages. You say that none of the definitions seem to be recognized in the interactions window after you click the run button? Does this mean that when you try to reference a defined value you get an error? Or what exactly is happening when you try to use one of your definitions in the interactions window?
