increments shown on the clocks. For example, if you select "Hour", only clocks with

The Generate! button allows you to generate your clock worksheets.
Once you have entered the input data and selected any options, you may select one
of two different Generate! choices:
- Generate problems - This choice will
generate and display your clock worksheets (without answers). Each worksheet will
be displayed in a new browser window. Once displayed, you can review and/or print
your worksheet. On many browsers, you can move your mouse over each individual clock
to view the answer (only for "Write in time" problem type).
- Generate answers - This choice will
display your clock worksheets (with answers). Each worksheet will be displayed in
a new browser window. Once displayed, you can review and/or print your answer worksheet.
For each set of options you select on the build page, you will
get the same problems each time you click the Generate! button. If you are not satisfied
with the problems generated for you, then you can click the Re-Shuffle button. Once
you click Re-Shuffle, you can re-click the Generate! button to generate a new set
of problems. There is no limit to the number of times you can re-shuffle your problems.
