This flashcard system created using techniques explained in Flashcard section of Test and Quiz. To add a term cut and paste an entire block then cut and paste in the new term behind the semi-colon and its definition behind the colon. Increment the last switch block tag and place the number in the new block tag, (|1= ....). Finally update the divisor in the switch statement expression to match total number of cards available. Otherwise some cards will not ever be picked for display.
