I am currently in the process of starting to formalize my mathematics notes, both hand-written and digital. In that I have reached somewhat of a conundrum. I have learned both through practice and formal education that colorization can help the students visualize and learn the material better.
My question is about if and if so how colorization should be used.
The website Better explained has a longer article discussing the benefits of colorization. Here is one example
In my opinion this explanation is somewhat cluttered, there are too many colors in addition the purple and magenta are to similar. I have a couple of suggestions to improve this
- Highlight one color at a time (this could easily be done in a beamer presentation), however I am afraid this would consume too much time.
- Have one color for variables, one for constants the rest remains black.
- Everything black.
Are any of the suggestions above good, or are there better solutions I have not considered? Any feedback is appreciated.
