I would like to make a list of math exercises. Formatting that intend this list is as follows. The first half of the page I would write in a single column. From the second half of the page into two columns I write normally.

Is there any resource (package LaTeX command or setting in the preamble of the LaTeX document) to write a document possessing simultaneously (and even on the same page) text in single column and double column?

the multicol package allows switching column number mid page or using standard twocolumn you can use

\twocolumn[single column material at top of this page] ... two column stuff....
