it’s definitely winter

We woke up to -1 degrees this morning, brrr!! I was able to squeeze in enough time to record the following videos after I spent about 3 hours fine-tuning my schedule for finals! Every year I wonder which is more difficult…scheduling all of those hours of students or actually tutoring that many hours of students, lol! I think it’s a toss-up :)


Here is a video explaining a neat method for sketching polar graphs. This is what my honors Precalc students are doing this week…



And here is a video showing how to solve a trig equation that involves a total of 6 answers! This is what my regular Precalc students were just tested on…


post office fun

I wish I was as good at using those self-service machines at the post office as I am at math! It would have saved me probably a half hour over waiting in line yesterday. I was almost late to tutor, and you probably noticed that I didn’t publish my Calculus post until midnight last night!!


Both my honors and regular Precalc students are synced up working on the chapter with trig identities right now. Both classes are solving trig equations so I created one video today showing a few examples of those. You have to be really familiar with your trig identities to make solving these equations much easier.



Have a wonderful Tuesday, and I’ll see you back here tomorrow for Advanced Algebra Trig!
