shop math shortcuts

Now I understand why I couldn't learn factoring when I went to school, it was my teacher's style and grace as I suspected all along. :lol:

My german teacher was a lot like that and made it really difficult to learn anything.

MIT grad... She likes herself more than what she is teaching.

Looks correct to me....The worst thing is that she wrote the entire thing backwards so we could read it through the clear board. I can't even do my times tables. (pretty though)

Thought you were going to say she's from Down Under and just mimics the drain water (anti-clockwise) :D

I remember using her method to map out the unit circle for my trig class. Had to watch it twice cause the first time I just watched her boobs.

nope, she flipped the video before uploading it. She is right handed. But a really good teacher. I watched a bunch of her videos when I was taking pre calculus last year and they all have real closed captions, not auto generated ones. Profrobbob. On YouTube has a lot of good videos too.

Calculus was where math stumped me. Not for my lack of ability, but because I couldn't find an instructor at my college with more personality than a dial tone. Stick your theory and rote memory where the sun doesn't shine. Teach me with a practical application, and act like you give a damn, and I'm in.
