Frank Fuhlbrück submitted the exercisesheets package. Version: 0.17 2024-04-23 License: lppl1.3c Summary description: Typeset exercise sheets for university courses and school classes Announcement text:
Hello, the exercisesheets package has been in development since 2008 and was started by Sebastian Kuhnert, I (Frank Fuhlbrück) am the maintainer since about 2018. Its features include: - Choice between a lightweight interface where you use enumerate etc. to give our exercises some structure or a more explicit interface with special environments like "subtasks". - Ability to skip exercises under certain conditions, but still reference them (e.g.: you generate sheet 5 and reference exercises from sheet 3 and 7). - A dedicated loading mechanism for external exercise files. If you have many (in our case > 300) exercises, skipping them with LaTeX's means within a single file becomes costly. With this mechanism you can reference to entire exercise without actually reading the file or to parts of only those which actually contains labels. - Beamer support. Create an exercise sheet with only the exercises and place it on your website/moodle etc. Then, while preparing for the class, generate the solutions in beamer mode and use a projector. There are options to ignore certain beamer commands in non-beamer mode, so you can have the same solutions as proper printout (not beamer's handout mode). If using lualatex this also works with fragile stuff (e.g., listings) in your solutions. Development happens at https://gitlab.com/texedutools/exercisesheets , feel free to file any bugs.

exercisesheets – Typeset exercise sheets for university courses and school classes

This package provides a way to typeset exercise sheets as used in university courses and school classes. It has evolved from a set of macros and environments that were finally combined into this package. Since version 0.11 it has a regular and a beamer mode (selected depending on the documentclass used). From version 0.16 on there is an embedded mode that allows using exercises in lecture notes etc. without requiring page breaks. Since the package includes a loading mechanism for exercises from external files, the same exercises can be reused in different contexts.
