I'm from Sweden and I'm looking for a fomula collection that are used in High Schools in USA. I've seared a lot at the Internet, but I have failed to find any. Is there perhaps any student living in USA who knows which formula collection that is most used in the USA? Thanks in advance! Kind regards, Tomas

If this is something that was used as an object in Sweden, as in 'make sure you know all the formulas from the collection,' then there is no equivalent in the USA. Really, I think the formulas we learn vary from school district to school district, and mostly varies based on the book used for the class.

That means that you have to know all formulas by heart on the tests then? Don't you have national tests that are the same over all US? Here is a link to a formula sheet that is handed out for the national test at the last course at high school in Sweden: http://www.mattecentrum.se/dokument/formlerEvt08.pdf

That varies -- but typically the answer is "yes".

No.

Many students will take either or both the SAT or the ACT, but they're not government tests and they aren't required. Some US states have tests required for graduation, but not all do, they all differ, and I'm not aware of any that allow formula sheets.
