Are there any good documentclasses on CTAN (or built in to some distributions) that are designed for turning in homework problem sets? I've managed to find one, but it's a bit awkward. Are there any others?

1 Answer 1


I've used the exam class to make quizzes and exams. How different would homework sets be?

  • I want to turn in a problem set, not create one. I've edited the question to clarify.

  • I'm not sure how different the requirements are. I've used exam to make the things I hand out, and to make the grading keys, which would resemble the submitted homework. Being entirely unsure how the assignment class you found is awkward, I don't know whether the exam class is an improvement or not. Sep 11, 2011 at 0:43
  • @Dan, I believe exam would provide the same structure (question-answer pairs).

    @Mike: Uh..if the problems are from a book and I want to specify the problem number, how can I do it with the exam package? Thank you!

  • The only way I can see to do that is to explicitly use \setcounter{question}{value} before each \question. value should be one less than the problem number you want, since the \question command will automatically increment the number. For anything else, just post a new question, to avoid this page becoming cluttered. Oct 1, 2011 at 18:54
