All numbers are randomly generated!          Infinite variations
All three questions are generated from the same                    template.   Take a quick look at the first two again ….
Solutions form part of the template.   Lets analyse one in detail ….
We store the state of the random numbersWe can reproduce the exact question a learner saw
We determine the correct answersLearners enter their answer and we check
Provide hintsHints can lead to losing marks on the question or not
Provide step-by-step solution     Step 1 for this problem
Provide step-by-step solution     Step 2 for this problem
Provide step-by-step solution  Step 3 and 4 for this problem
We store prequisite knowledge and skills for each step    We even time how long each step takes learners
