There are a LOT of differences in the defaults between the two. It's very frustrating having to learn a new "dialect" after struggling to learn the language to begin with.
Is there a good place to find out the terms and hot keys I should use (in both MO & Mathematica) so I can lesson my learning curve? (That curve now looks like a parabola.)
Specifically, I am have gone back to school to become a high school math teacher for kids who were like me and didn't understand math. So now I have to go through a lot of courses and teach myself. Everything I am doing is academic and in the subjects of calc (pre through Calc III), Algebra, Geometry, Trig, and probably some probability and statistics. How can I easily find the command words to use to make everything work and save me an insane amount of computing time?
And how can I also make these things work on both desktop and online versions? (Trying to decide which to stick with.) An example of what I can't do online is using CTRL keys for radicals, exponents, fractions, etc. Included are what desktop allows me to do (easy to see if I make a mistake) and what online allows me to do (really hard to catch mistakes and is a waste of money when I can just use the Alpha app I already own). And yes, I had to search for quite some time to find "root" to be -I hope- the right term.
Thank you ... a LOT.
