Abstract

In the paper a software solution is presented for the generation of instances of exercises. The focus is on education in mathematics but the approach can be adopted in other fields such as computer science and natural science. The present solution uses the R environment for the generation process and LaTeX for the content presentation. In the established system, we realized the separation of computations and design which has the advantage that it is easier to find errors and shortcomings.
