In the video below, Patrick Jones shows how to work with composition of functions with several examples. Enjoy!
One issue I often encounter with students I tutor is that beyond particular misunderstandings of certain areas of mathematics, students often do not know how to effectively study and or communicate their work in written form. This is especially true for for exams – often the major component of one’s final grade in college and university courses. I was extremely fortunate to read How to Study Mathematics: Effective Study Strategies for College and University Studies (affiliate link) by Peter Schiavone my first semester of university. In the book, Schiavone shares the most effective study strategies he’s encountered for college and university level students. I highly recommend this book if you plan on taking any university or college level mathematics courses as it will help you Ace Your Math Class!
Sudoku is a popular logic-based game number placement game that appears in many daily newspapers around the world. Working on number based math and logic games may help boost your brain power – or at least keep it fresh. Think of it as mental exercise. For most people however, they simply like it. I’ve met people who “hate” mathematics, yet gladly fill out a sudoku or related puzzle to relax.
My former colleague Alejandro Erickson has created a wonderful new book of puzzles, a logic-game that focuses on geometric reasoning, rather than number reasoning like sudoku. It’s called Tomoku. In the video below, Alejandro demonstrates how to solve tomoku tatami puzzle from his book “Tomoku! 80 Challenging Tatami Puzzles”
You can give the game a try online on the Tomoku puzzle website
QUESTION: What is your favourite math/logic based game and how has this game helped you with your mathematical studies/teaching? Please share your thoughts in the comments section of this post
In a previous post (a video tutorial on the properties of logarithms), I introduced you to the wonderful math tutorial videos by Patrick Jones. In the following video, Patrick introduces the law of sines (from trigonometry) and gives an example to show how you might use this mathematical relationship between the length of the sides and the sines of the angles of a triangle. Enjoy!
Patrick Jones, a long-time mathematics tutor based in Austin, Texas, USA, has created a vast collection of wonderful video mathematics tutorials. I will be sharing them here on the Ace Your Math Class site from time-to-time as they are an invaluable resource for those studying mathematics.
In the video below, Patrick covers some basic properties of logarithms and provides several examples. Enjoy!
