The Geometry Tutor is a 9 hour course spread over 2 DVD disks that will aid the student in the core topics of Geometry. Geometry is frequently challenging for students because every problem involves a figure that the student must use to solve the problem. It is very important early on to master the art of reading the geometric figures properly in order to do wellin this subject. The best way to do this is to introduce the definitions early on and solve problems involving diagrams to give the student this much needed practice.
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.
Calculus 3 is considered by most to be a very difficult course to master in the realm of Calculus. This is because you will learn about many different topics, and each topic builds on the previous. If you don't understand something early on, the chances of "catching up" are drastically reduced as time goes on.
Solving higher order differential equations is challenging for most students simply because the solution methods usually run several pages in length even for the easier problems. The student must identify the type of equation to solve and apply the appropriate solution method, which can lead to valuable lost time on an exam if the wrong solution method is chosen at the outset.
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.
