python3_w_input - checking students' answers

When I check students' answers to python3_w_input type questions I find that the students must write their input prompt  and print instructions exactly as I expect them otherwise their answers are treated as mistakes. For instance, if they write their prompt as "Your number pls" and I check for "Your number please" their answer is treated as a mistake. 

I know this will be much less of a problem when they start writing functions but for the beginning of the course, I need them to write small programs. 

Can you please suggest a solution to this?

Thank you very much!
