I work in science and math education and research: offering private group tutorials for university math classes (cal 1/2/3/4; lin. alg.; freshman physics etc.). I am presently looking to undertake graduate studies either in physics or science education. I also design educational software, starting with a program that uses the spaced repetition model along with audio recordings to teach foreign language vocabulary (esp. Arabic; French; Spanish) and the rote memory parts of math and physics courses.

comment How to properly format a proof/explanation with multiple points of alignment?
my apologies for the edit not coming through yesterday. I'm in a rural area with poor internet connectivity and it just wouldn't load. I believe it has updated now. Thank you for the multi-point example, I'll try it out now!

comment How to properly format a proof/explanation with multiple points of alignment?
Bernard - thank you kindly for the detailed reply; however, unless I'm missing something, this still only has a single point of alignment (at the equality symbol) and so is effectively the same as the cited Q&A. I have hacked together something that approximates the rendering I'm looking for and will add it to the question in order to help clarify. Please let me know if I've missed or misunderstood.

comment Cross-referencing items in two-level enumerate environment
N.B. this only works if you explicitly define the type of enumerated sublist. I lost a ton of time trying to make this work because the default sublist was alphabetical, which is what I wanted, but apparently failure to include [label=(\alph*)] when defining the sublist will still lead to the original problem, even though it has no visible effect on the appearance of the sublist.

comment Starting point for getting more familiar with TeX/LaTex etc
@ienissei I got the same error, but the switch to Al Bayan just created a document with empty rectangles in place of the Arabic script. I searched out other Arabic fonts included by default on Mac, but all of them give rectangles. Any thoughts?

comment How to use Koma-script only to change font size?
@toh Relative as it is, I'm not sure clarity is as useful a concept as 'comprehensive'. This problem will attract novices, and existing answers could easily be adapted to provide the info in a more accessible way. I spent nearly 2h trying to change the font size, even with >1000pg of technical typesetting behind me. Newbs like me can't filter relevant info in searches and 250pg manuals as effectively as experienced members. My suggestions are very concrete and easy-to-implement solutions to facilitate accessibility in light of the most likely audience for the problem w/o ignoring others.
