Identify Root Causes To correctly identify a root cause, a complete understanding of the process is necessary. This does not mean just understanding how a process was designed to work. It means understanding how the process is actually working. To accomplish this you need to: Have clearly defined goals for data collection Identify the data…

Intro to exponents

Remember exponents? In pre-algebra you work with the letter x/y that represents a number. We can have x/y given to us and you plug the number into the problem and solve or you have to solve it algebraically. You may have to simplify the problem to get an exponent. This is what we will be…

Subtracting Negative Numbers

As most of you will see as you enter Algebra there are many problems that involve subtracting negative numbers. This is not an easy thing to do. Thats why I am here to help!

Limits

Limits are the underlying base to Calculus. We do not usually look at them as we work, but they are in virtually everything we do. They are a strange idea for math as well, because they are based on our perception rather than some calculation we do. To take a limit of a function, we…

Solving Exponents and Powers

We know how to solve the problem 5 x 5. This expression can be written in a shorter way, using something called exponents. 5 x 5 = 5^2 An expression that represents a repeated multiplication of the same number is called a power. The number 5 is called the base, and the number 2 is…

Interpret Function Notation

Use function notation, evaluate functions for inputs in their domains, and interpret statements that use function notation in terms of a context.

Solving for x and other variables, multiple problem subjects

I am very proficient with Mathematics. I have taken Algebra 1 and 2, Geometry, and Pre Calculus in High School. I have tutored High School students for the Math portion of the High School Exit Exam. I am confident in my abilities to help any student with their Math problems! I am eager and willing…

intro to chain rule

The chain rule in calculus is finding the derivative for two or more products of themselves. For example F(x)= (x+3)^4 where F(x)= G(H(x)) and G(x)= (x)^4, H(x)= x+3. Then you would use the chain rule to find the derivative. This rule is simple, yet it can be hard to differentiate the different individual functions. So…
