    What you do is change your wifi name to the equation. I tend to have a look at my wifi on my laptop very frequently which results in the memorisation of the equation eventually. I have tried this with a couple of equations and this method proves to be an excellent one.

    Indeed. This is a method for those who struggle to do what you suggested.

    You have to remember equations at GCSE? Just check page 2 of the exam paper. :lol:

    Lol! I don't check my wifi frequently because it is awful.

    When I was doing my exams, I drew the equations on a drawing app and then set the picture as my lock screen background on my phone. I ended up viewing those equations a lot.

    I do that on my laptop. Right now it's an image that explains cloning...

    It's a good trick, I learnt the SUVAT equations like this :yep:

    Be like me and remember the most useless things like almost all the equations on the data sheet in physics, i guess i'm a little lucky that i can just remember equations and stuff but then again that falls under the category of me remembering the most useless things.

    i just looked and remember since it was forced into me that the equations of motion were super important and were used everywhere so they were then remembered ._.

    Or, you know - understanding them and deriving them if you don't remember. I don't remember much formulae, if I need them, I'll derive them on the spot.

    I wouldn't go that far :lol:

    Although I prefer it to circular motion if that's what you mean :holmes:

    SUVAT equations are probably one of the most useful things I've actually learnt from college
    But yeah, if it's in one of your subjects it really does get hammered into you :lol:

    I LOVE SUVAT questions. Seeing them on a paper brightens up my whole life. The effect these equations have on me is inexplicable.

    I can do that with chemistry...but not mathematics. For example, I can only work out the surface area of a cylinder because I know the formula, I would not be able to derive it right then.

    But once you understand why that formula is that formula, you can derive it whenever - look at this: http://www.mathopenref.com/cylinderarea.html

    Volume of cylindrical shapes such as cuboids rectangle long things and cylinders
    are
    area of cross section x length

    obviously some stuff you should really know like area of a circle

    which is  \pi r^2

    circle diameter

    \pi d

    I'm sorry. I thought it would be clear I was referring to equations that would not be provided.
