The possible types of exercises are: Calculate, Factor, Expand and simplify, Solve (equation, inequality or system).

The initial expression of each exercise has to be added in the definition of the phase.
By creating lots of exercises and fixing a small number of exercises for each phase, the student will get differents exercises when reusing the resource.
