German term or phrase: Päckchen
This is a term used in a school book on mathematics (more to follow). Unfortunately I do not have much text; the word is used as a heading before a list of basic calculations (decimal number = fraction = percentage). The only other use of the word is "Stelle zu folgenden Zahlen ein weiteres Päckchen her:"

I have temporarily used "packet" but I am not at all sure whether this is correct, and Google has not helped me.

Explanation:
My guess. Compare with this:
"Each testing session involved an instruction and practice period followed by taking the test in which residents attempt to solve 75 simple math problems in blocks of 3 to 7 problems per block."https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2699161/
