The fc*arith Package Author: D. P. Story Dated: 2016/12/10*

fc*arith is a LaTeX package used to create an arithmetic flash card. Addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division problems are randomly generated. There is a menu system for setting the intervals from which to randomly draw numbers, and the number of decimal places these numbers should have. The user can optionally compete against the clock, and awarded points as a function of how fast the problem is correctly solved.*

The flash card created by fc*arith can be customized in many ways. Design and build your own flash card using any of the standard PDF creators.*

What's New (2016/12/10): All the standard PDF creators can build the demo file fc*noacrobat.tex. If you own the Acrobat application, you can also build fc*acrobat.tex using any workflow (dvips/distiller, pdflatex, lualatex, and xelatex). Additional commands are defined to localize virtually strings the package uses. A redefined menu environment (MenuFC) is more flexible than the old one. Fixed a lot of bugs found by my greatest user and tester J. Gilg.

Requirements are

- The eforms package (version 2.5c or later, 2010/03/21 or later), and is available from the acrotex bundle (http://ctan.org/pkg/acrotex)
- The popupmenu package (http://ctan.org/pkg/popupmenu)
