I want to make an example with a two column enumerated list, but with enough space for the kids to write their answers on the in the example; attached is a photo of what I am looking for.enter image description here

I turned @jfbu's comment into an answer.


\task First left column
\task First right column
\task Second left column
\task Second right column
\task Third left column
\task Third right column

  • How can I add more spaces in between rows? This kids need to write. Nov 20, 2017 at 13:50
  • @JoshuaJones: Add \settasks{after-item-skip=2cm,after-skip=2cm} in your preamble to set the vertical space between items to 2cm (or any other length of your choice) for all tasks environment in your document.

  • Last question: How do I put vertical space between the two columns? Nov 20, 2017 at 14:42
  • I suppose you mean horizontal space between the columns?

  • @AboAmmar: To reproduce the O.P.'s labelling, you should add \settasks{counter-format =(tsk[a]).

Making some editions to the code from Equal spacing with enumerate and multicol, we have

enter image description here




%Problem 1
\item[] \textbf{Exercise \#2}. Consider the trigonometric equation $\sin(\theta)=-\dfrac13$ over the interval $0\dg\leq\theta\leq360\dg$. \\

\subproblem{a}{determine the reference angle for this problem by evaluating $\sin^{-1}(1/3)$. Round to nearest \textit{tenth} of a degree.}\hfill
\subproblem{b}{In what quadrants is the sine function negative?}


\subproblem{c}{Draw the rotation diagrams for the two angles that terminate in the quadrants specified in (b) that have the reference angle from (a).}\hfill
\subproblem{d}{Using your answers from (a), (b) and (c), solve the equation $\sin(\theta)=-\dfrac13$ over the interval $0\dg\leq\theta\leq360\dg$. State your answer to the nearest \textit{tenth} of a degree.}


%Problem 2
\item Second problem goes here.
