How to Brush Up on Your Maths SkillAugust 29, 2008
I know you don’t want to admit it, but you love mathematics, isn’t it? Of course you want to be in the best shape possible to prepare for the long battle. You try to solve a few equations an realize in horror that all those hours watching anime have drained your brain! Fear not, let the butterfly help you!
As I mentioned before, Mnemosyne is an excellent learning tool. Someone was nice enough to enter some of the most frequently used equations in a card form. While it says Calculus, some of the equations are very basic and will be useful for other math courses.
Calculus Formulas from Stewart Calculus 6E (Mnemosyne)
All formulas in the front cover, and all formulas in the back cover through Basic Integrals.
- You need Mnemosyne software if you don’t have it yet.
- You need LaTeX to display the equations correctly. That will involve some heave duty installation, but you can do it! Just download that setup file (over 600MB) and install individual packages by going to the respective folders and activating setup file.
Opening the file:
- Download zip file and unpack it
- Create new file: Open Mnemosyne, File > New > Name you file (e.g. Math)
- Import the data: File > Import > Select XML Option (that file is in XML format) > Browse to the file
- If you don’t have LaTex, you ‘ll get an error message.
Using the file
The file contains 239 equations, but some of them might not display properly. This can be easily fixed by hitting Edit Current Card (Ctrl+E) and removing the “=” sign. For example “cos(x-y)=” will not display properly, but “cos(x-y)” will show up correctly.
Good luck in your studies
