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 do I get expl3 from CTAN?
I'm getting a new error after loading these packages: "! LaTeX Error: `cntformats.sty' not found." Anyone encountered this issue. I was just trying to use a new package to make a quick change - that was 2.5h ago. Now I'm losing it! :S

comment set row separation (vertical spacing) of enumerated list in multicol environment
Thanks Bernard! Can't say as I see much difference in the alignment between the two, but I much prefer the `horizontal' numbering! First time I've seen this package, thank you for bringing it to my attention. Know any particularly good documentation for it? (I haven't searched yet, just thought I'd ask; I'll post a link here if I find anything worthwhile). All the best, Rax

comment Mavericks upgrade screwed up my pdflatex (command not found)
I'm not familiar with Terminal & when I tried to do this I got a "permission denied" error (despite being logged in as admin). After a quick search, I found that you can either precede the command with 'sudo' or, if it was the last command entered, then you can just type 'sudo !!' and it'll prompt you for your password. After this, it worked perfectly for me. Thank you!

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.
