I'm having trouble stringing together my ideas; in my head, the ideas all fit together to prove my argument, but on paper, the thoughts seem disconnected.
This is a common problem faced by students when writing academic essays. Here are some ways we can go about tackling the issue together: - Talk through your thought process aloud, and allow deeper prodding and question from me to understand where the lack of connectivity is in the essay and how different wording or additional parts can be used in your essay - Create a diagram of the essay structure and see whether the issue is that new parts need to be added, current parts need to be deleted, and/or the order of parts needs improvement - Look at the current thesis statement, and brainstorm whether a different overarching thesis can better tie together the major ideas you wish to convey
Subject: College Admissions
Essay question: Why would you like to attend ______ College?
Ideas to consider when drafting your essay response: - What specific programs, club organizations, and more are you interested in participating in? How do your previous experiences fit, and what do you specifically want to contribute as a participant if you were to attend the college? - Any professors or courses you would love to meet or be a student in? - Traditions specific to the school that you can't wait to join in on? Ask yourself: Does my essay clearly demonstrate my interest in this college specifically, or is it too general and can be applied to any schools? Have I conveyed an image of how myself, specifically, fits in within this school? After reading my essay, will the admissions officer be able to envision me as a student on this college's campus?
Please simplify the following expression: (4x^2 + 2y^5) * (x^5 + 2xy^2)
4x^7 + 8x^3y^2 + 2x^5y^5 + 4xy^7 This questions test a variety of mathematical concepts: the FOIL method, variables, multiplication of powers, etc. It fits within what I believe ACT questions are typically like, as the problem looks somewhat complicated at first glance but can actually be solved rather simply with the right foundational concepts.
