The Algebra Word Problem Tutor is a 6 hour course spread over 2 DVD disks that will aid the student skills needed to master Algebra Word Problems. Word problems are frequently hard for students to master because you have to learn how to extract the information out of the problem and decide how to proceed with finding the solution - and there are usually many ways to do this! This DVD course teaches by examples how to set up algebra word problems and solve them. It is applicable to any Algebra course, SAT, GRE, and other standardized tests.
The Algebra 2 Tutor is a 6 hour course spread over 2 DVD disks that will aid the student in the core topics of Algebra 2. This DVD bridges the gap between Algebra 1 and Trigonometry, and contains essential material to do well in advanced mathematics. Many of the topics in contained in this DVD series are used in other Math courses, such as writing equations of lines, graphing equations, and solving systems of equations. These skills are used time again in more advanced courses such as Physics and Calculus.
The Laplace Transform is one of the most powerful mathematical tools that can be used to solve a wide variety of problems in Math, Science, and Engineering. We begin this course by discussing what the Laplace Transform is and why it is important. Next, we show the Laplace Integral, and derive several fundamental transformations that we will use in the remainder of the course. We also discuss the Inverse Laplace Transform and derive several inverses. We discuss how to solve Ordinary Differential Equations (ODEs) with initial conditions and work several examples to give practice with real problems.
Matrix Algebra usually gives students problems in the beginning because although it has applications in algebra, it looks completely different from any algebra the student has used up to this point. The material on these DVDs is covered in most advanced high school algebra courses and is definitely covered in a university linear algebra course.
What is striking when you talk with mathematicians is that sparkle in their eyes, and their sudden joyful voice trying to share with you a concept, a theory. They continuously use words such as invention, beauty, freedom. You then ask yourself : how such a rich language, this quasi-philosophical proposition about the world becomes rejected by a majority, 'the only discipline where one prides itself to be bad at it'! But for 40 years, mathematitians have become essential in sickness and in health!
This DVD teaches students how to easily tackle basic math word problems, and builds upon the foundation laid by the 1st - 7th Grade Math Tutor DVD.
After students learn a math skill such as multiplication or division, many are frequently confused on how to apply these skills to solve word problems. Word problems present the problem to be solved in sentence form, and in these types of problems the student must pull the information out of the problem and decide the best way to solve it. The only way to get good at solving these types of problems is to practice, and that is what this 8 hour DVD course provides.
Algebra 1 is one of the most intimidating subjects for math students. The reason is that prior to this point students have been dealing with numbers such as "3" and "43" and now suddenly in Pre-Algebra And Algebra 1 they begin to deal with variables such as "x" and "y". This concept at first can seem a bit daunting with all of those letters running around!
Great math riddles and paradoxes have a long and illustrious history, serving as both tests and games for intellectual thinkers across the globe. Passed through the halls of academia and examined in-depth by scholars, students, and amateurs alike, these riddles and paradoxes have brought frustration and joy to those seeking intellectual challenges.
