Visual Recall Devices for Electrodynamics formulas

Ingenious use of hand shapes to recall the structure of formulas in Electrodynamics. The kernal of this wisdom is that the hand is one of the few “devices” that must be allowed in any testing situation for students. Yes, I know there is an iPhone app for each formula that plots in 3D, etc. But what if you had solve these equations after a ship wreck?
