Making geometry worksheets in LaTeX?

7th Grade Math Year in Review Part 1
7th Grade Math Year in Review Part 1

Here is something to get you started. The configuration assumes that each row of the worksheet will include 3 questions. However, you can easily adapt it if necessary.

As far as the figures are concerned, the only one which seems worth making a little more automatic is the circle because that always follows the same structure. In other cases, the labels etc. vary and, since the shapes are simple, you might just as soon draw them as you wish.

tikzqn is an environment which will automatically number the questions and insert answer spaces.
