Having shortcuts in writing things may be useful.

I know the therefore symbol is condoned.

However, are there a list of mathematical symbols that AQA allows you to use?

I am a slow writer (fast if I write messy), so it would help.


Thank you.

Thank God for this post, I've been using the therefore symbol on all my practice papers - I thought it was fine!

Condoned means allowed, so you can use the therefore symbol. :^_^:

The specification has a list of notation near the bottom (page 108 until page 112)

http://filestore.aqa.org.uk/subjects...60-W-SP-14.PDF

Don't feel threatened if you don't know a few of these, I don't think any of the exams REQUIRES you to know them (mostly the set notation and logical operators.)

That should have any and all 'shortcuts' you need. (I use the for all symbol a lot, personally.)

You should really be familiar with most of that notation in the specification.

I often use s and c for \sin and \cos respectively. This saves a significant amount of time on questions involving De Moivres theorem in FP2. Of course I define the notation before I start the question, so they cannot say you are 'not allowed' to use it.
