### Commonly used Greek letters

Here's a list of Greek letters we'll use in our classLetter | Name | Use |
---|---|---|

α | Alpha (lowercase) | Often used to denote angles. It looks more like a fish when I draw it on the board, to distinguish it from the letter "a". |

β | Beta (lowercase) | Often used to denote angles |

θ | Theta (lowercase) | Often used to denote angles |

ω | Omega (lowercase) | Often used to denote angular speed |

Here are some other Greek letters it's helpful to know

Δ | Delta (upper case) | Used to denote the change in some quantity |

μ | Mu (lower case) | Used to denote the prefix "micro" in the metric system. For example, "μg" means "micrograms", or one millionth of a gram |

ε | Epsilon (lower case) | Used in math to denote a small number. Not be confused with the symbol ϵ, which means "in". |

δ | Delta (lower case) | Used to denote a small number if epsilon is already taken |
