Welcome back to school, and best wishes for an amazing year! (I was such a nerd in school, I loved working ahead in the summer in math, and couldn’t wait for the school years to begin 😉
She Loves Math is basically finished (Counting through Calculus), and I’ve just added two “study guides” for Calculus:
Please continue to give me feedback on the site (errors or omissions, etc). And I’m still working on converting tables to HTML and making it look better overall.
I also wanted to give you a few hints and tips to have a productive and successful year in math that I’ve posted before:
- Keep up with the homework; this is probably the most important. Sometimes we think we understand the math, but actually we can’t do the problems. Even if you have to do 2 or 3 from each section, make sure you can do each type of problem that is assigned to you.
- Try to go to as many school tutoring sessions that you can, if you don’t feel good about the math (or, even if you do!). If you have the luxury of a private tutor, try to go ahead a little bit if you can, so you can hear the lecture twice.
- See if you can get your hands on old tests, like from an older sibling, friends, etc. I know this may seem like “cheating”, but they do (or should) change the questions every year. This way you can have a good idea what’s expected of you.
- Use She Loves Math or another site to read through material before you have the lecture; this way you’ll have a better chance of keeping up with the new material. And feel free to send specific questions to me to see if I can help 🙂
Thanks for your continued support, and please spread the word about SheLoveMath.com 🙂
With much math love,
P.S. I’m looking for ways to give back to the community by providing scholarships (from ad proceeds from this site) for students who are planning on studying math and science in college. Please let me know if you have any ideas on programs where I could do this. Thx!
