Tips for memorizing equations
Posted on 2006-03-20
This isn't necessarily a math/science question itself, but I figured that if anyone could help on this, it would be you lot !
I've got a huge number of equations, identities, et al., that I need to learn — within a considerably short period of time as well..
I've found that some of these equations just stick; I read them once or twice, and they're in there for good (or, at least until after the exams :)).
But others, (particularly the trig and trig-calculus stuff) are not setting as firmly as I'd like them to (if at all).
I'm sure you've all faced this problem before... what has helped you?
Mneumonics (spelt correctly?) ? Simply applying the equations as often as you can ? Something else ? .. Something original ? :)
