LaTeX Package : probsoln v3.04 Last Modified : 2012-08-23 Author : Nicola L.C. Talbot Files : probsoln.dtx - documented source file probsoln.ins - installation script The package probsoln.sty is designed for lecturers who have to generate new problem sheets for their students on a regular basis (e.g. yearly) by randomly selecting a specified number of problems defined in another file. This means that you can easily generate a new problem sheet that is different from the previous year, thus alieviating the temptation of students to seek out the previous year's students and checking out their answers. The solutions to the problems can be defined along with the problem, making it easy to generate the solution sheet from the same source code. Required packages: ifthen amsmath xkeyval To extract the code do: latex probsoln.ins This will create the file probsoln.sty which should be placed somewhere on your TeX path. It will also create several sample documents, sample*.tex, and sample databases used by the sample documents. If you can't bring yourself to read the manual, please try out these sample documents to give yourself an idea of what to do. To extract the documentation do: latex probsoln.dtx latex probsoln.dtx Comment out \OnlyDescription if you want the documented code.

## probsoln – Generate problem sheets and their solution sheets

The package is designed for lecturers who have to generate new problem sheets for their students on a regular basis (e.g. yearly) by randomly selecting a specified number of problems defined in another file.

The package allows you easily to generate a new problem sheet that is different from the previous year, thus alleviating the temptation of students to seek out the previous year's students and checking out their answers. The solutions to the problems can be defined along with the problem, making it easy to generate the solution sheet from the same source code; problems may be reused within a document, so that solutions may appear in a different section of the same document as the problems they cover.
