                 MATH FACT CAFE - Paul Carver

                 http://www.mathfactcafe.com/

Begun by parents, this site allows you to generate your own
custom math fact sheets. Choose from a variety of problem
types (addition, subtraction, multiplication, division,
greater/less than, and mixed) and also set various options:

  - font size
  - division answers
  - include name/date/score fields
  - don't allow answers of -1, 0, or 1
  - generate numbers with two decimals
  - jumbo space for working solution
  - no negative results for subtraction
  - range for generating numbers
  - row layout

After generating one fact sheet, the problems can be
reorganized using the Re-Shuffle feature.

Help screens for each of the features and a general FAQ
page are available.
