What are effective tips in studying Geometry?
Let's take an example when students learn Similarity: While the meanings of symmetry and similarity are close in standard English, the words carry different meanings in geometry. Students should work on understanding the definition of similarity and how it is applied to triangles and triangle trigonometry. They will want to remember formulas, but it is more important to remember how to arrive at a formula. By learning basic formulas, they can make learning advanced geometry easier.
Why should students learn Calculus? How is Calculus used in everyday life?
Calculus is the language of engineers, scientists, and economists. The work of these professionals has a huge impact on our daily life – from your microwaves, cell phones, TV, and car to medicine, economy, and national defense. Many of students are never again going to use calculus directly in our life. But, just because they are not going to use calculus directly, doesn’t mean it is not important to study. Here I am going to discuss how calculus is useful in real life. For example, shapes like square, circle, cubes can be solved using geometry and algebra concepts. But in nature, everything is not in perfect shape and size. Suppose we need to find the area of an irregular shape, with the help of calculus concepts easily you can find it. Engineering is also the field where calculus used most often. Calculus is required by architects and engineers to determine the size and shape of the curves. Without the use of calculus roads, bridges, tunnels would not be safe as they are today.
What should I do the night before the ACT?
On Friday night before the ACT, I would just refresh my knowledge of the structure of the test, some strategies, and some basic skills (verbal, grammar, or math). You want to do this to keep the thinking going so that it is continual right up to the exam. Don’t overdo it; just do enough so that it’s somewhat continuous—this will also relieve some anxiety, so that you won’t feel you are forgetting things before the exam.
