you dont need revision cards for maths seriously just practice then practice some more and some more....

I use my revision cards by putting a question on one side and the answer on the other side for example

One side: how do you calculate frequency density

Other side: class width ÷ frequency

You need to correct your card!

I used to do them for everything, virtually copying out a revision book.

But what I'm now doing is simplifying the most important things on only topics I struggle with. Here's one I did yesterday...

There are few things worth doing revision flash cards for in maths, it's mostly about practice
Circle theorems and parallel line angle facts are good and flash cards can really help to refresh memory on the day of the exam. Picture on one side, the theorem/reason explained in words on the other
Formulae that, when doing past papers, you find you forget or get wrong (e,g. Area and circumference of a circle, sohcahtoa, frequency density). Only make them for things you discover you don't know rather wasting time doing them for things you do.

It depends on what you want to use your revision cards for, I usually use them to summarise key topics - with a heading at the top followed by a few bullet points (one of which might be an example) and maybe a diagram. I'm not sure how you would do them for maths though, it's more about practice than memorisation? Although I did make statistics revision cards at A level since there were a few equations and methods to learn.

The key is to make them as short as possible, just listing the key information - otherwise they may as well be a textbook.

Another method is to use them as a revision quiz - with questions on one side and the answer on the other. This was particularly helpful for me with chemistry A level, where I would write one half of a chemical equation on the front, then the products and required temperature on the back, for example.

You get what I mean though it was an example. Always get it mixed up

I write short facts/notes on my revision cards and stick them all around my room.

I've even dedicated a wall to maths equations.
