Partial fractions
If it is an improper fraction, use the Remainder Thereom to find the number that is divisible, and then use the partial fractions method. If it has x(x^2 -1) partial fractions becomes A/x + Bx+c/x^2 -1

Trigonometric formulae
sin(A+B) = sinAcosB+cosAsinB, cos(A+B) = cosAcosB-sinAsinB, sin(A+B) = sinAcosB-sinAsinB, cos(A-B) = cosAcosB+sinAsinB

Tangent formulae
tan(A+B) = tanA+tanB/1-tanAtanB, tan(A-B) = tanA-tanB/1+tanAtanB, tan(2A) = 2tanA/1-tan^2A

Parametric equations
Translate - a add a to function for x, b add b to the function for y. Stretch (xd) multiply x function by d, Stretch (yd) multiply y function by d. Reflection (xd) multiply y function by -1, Reflection (yd) multiply x function by -1

Cartesian equations
Make t the subject and put into an equation, make the cartesian according to y. If substitution doesn't work, for instance x=t^2+1/t and y=t^2-1/t, add them together

Circles and Ellipses
Circle centre (0,0) radius 1, cartesian - x^2+y^2=r^2. If centre (a,b) x=rcos[angle]+a y=rsin[angle]+b and cartesian - r^2=(x-a)^2+(y-b)^2. Ellipses cartesian - x^2/a^2+y^2/b^2=1

Vector notation in 3D
|AB| = [squareroot](x^2-x^1)^2+(y^2-y^1)^2+(z^2-z^1)^2 which is the distance between A and B. General form of a vector equation r= [p1p2p3] + h*[d1d2d3]
