Using Excel... I would use a Userform.

Have the user select what type of flashcards they want to practice... Addition, Subtraction ... etc...

then have a label defined to hold the first addend or multiplicand... or whatever... and a text box where the user can type the answer.

Then hit a button <Check Answer> to verify the results....   another button for Next Problem... and 1 more button to Exit.

The following example should get you started...

It will generate a random series of addition problems and check your answers.
