Summary description: Create an arithmetic flash card
Announcement text:

fc_arith is a LaTeX package used to create an arithmetic flash card. Addition, subtraction, ultiplication, 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 hould have. The user can optionally compete against the clock, and awarded points as a function of how fast the problem is correctly solved. 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.

This package is located at http://mirror.ctan.org/macros/latex/contrib/fc_arith More information is at http://www.ctan.org/pkg/fc-arith

Thanks for the upload. For the CTAN Team Manfred Lotz We are supported by the TeX user groups. Please join a users group; see http://www.tug.org/usergroups.html .
