I'm doing math exercises every day or so. I would like to keep track of the different exercises I'm doing, with as much information as possible such as difference to the exercise (like book + exercise number), timestamp, how difficult it was for me, the skills it involved, etc.

The goal is to see how productive I am every day, to analyze which skills I am working on and to record which exercises where troublesome for me so that I can redo them a bit later. Are there any applications other than a spreadsheet to do so, or interesting methods to follow to achieve this goal?

What sort of level of mathematics? Brushing up on high school math? Calculus? Junior level math? Grad school? I would recommend getting a binder with a checklist in front of all the problems in a book. Every time you solve a problem put the solution in the binder with a summary of the methods you used. – nayrb Dec 25 '13 at 2:28

It may not be exactly what you're looking for, but Khan Academy has math exercises and some nice metrics, progress reports, and badges.
