[pdftex] Quest for Sample .tex Files

I teach high-school mathematics, and have taught myself pdfTeX (not
pdflaTex) from MiKTeX to create worksheets and tests. I also generate
class sets of worksheets by having C++ generate the .tex files, with
each student's worksheet having similar but different exercises.
Examples at www.lsmsa.edu/bburkman/resources.
I'm looking for a repository of simple sample files, with both .tex and
.pdf, from which I can adapt. I have found a few online, but don't know
what is state of the art. I want to, for instance, use Type 1 fonts,
but don't know how to specify them. I've read the manual, but it lacks
examples, and is somewhat cryptic.
I also want to include Bezier curves, but I haven't found anything about
pdfTricks written in the last three years. Was it replaced with
something? Did people give up on it? I haven't found any .tex examples
I would appreciate your suggestions.
