The *real* new-year: back to it!

Howdy all! Welcome (& welcome back) to the grind! We’re only into the third week of classes and already things are moving full tilt. Very excited to announce that this year I will be acting as the in-house tutor for the Mastercard Foundation’s scholarship program at McGill: meaning I get to work with the wonderful and talented scholarship students in MATH 133, MATH 139, MATH 140, CHEM 110 and physics, which means all these groups are ready to go. If you’re interested in any of them, just get in touch using the contact form at the bottom of the Tutorials page (under “About”).

In addition to the above classes, we also have groups for MATH 222, MATH 262, MATH 263, and hope to be introducing a class for ISLA 521 – Introductory Arabic. Many of these are quickly reaching capacity, so if you’re interested, be sure to get in touch ASAP.  If you’d like to join a group but your class isn’t listed, use the contact form on the Tutorials page and mention your class in the comments field.

Finally, a doodle has been posted for the homework sessions. This will be used to determine potential times for holding homework sessions during the week, so if you’re hoping to attend these often, be sure to fill out your *general, weekly* availability ASAP. The first sessions will be posted here on the site as soon as we have min. 5 people available at the same time.

Looking forward to helping you understand &nd succeed in your classes this year. Remember, if you have any questions, just get in touch – I’m here to help!

May Sessions are Here!

That’s right: we’ve got sessions going for MATH 133, MATH 140, MATH 141, MATH 222 & MATH 262 at the moment. If you’d like join any of these groups, or get a session going for another class, you can register using the form on each class page or send us a note! To everyone who aced their winter exams: congrats & have a great summer!

MATH 141 – Final Exam

Final Review Session: Mock Final Based on Prof. Hundemer’s Sample – Friday April 11th, 4:30-7:30pm, M3-37A on the third floor of McLennan. This will be a mock-final based on the sample MATH 141 final provided by Prof. Hundemer. In the fall term, his sample 140 final matched the actual exam very closely both in format and difficulty. As such, I’ve written two exams similar to the sample in those respects, but with different questions. This session will look at the second of these two exams, which is similar in style but more difficult than Prof. Hundemer’s version. Students will have short intervals for attempting the problems followed by a brief discussion of the solution, as a group. $55 for the session + copies of both exams, $50 for the session + today’s exam only; $10 off if you bring a friend. Please RSVP with Adaam at McGill.Calc.Help -at- gmail.com; though drop-ins are welcome. See full details at the MATH 141 page.

Good luck with finals!

MATH 141 – Integration Session & Final Review

Integration Session: Sunday April 6th 3-5pm, M3-37A on the third floor of McLennan. We’ll be covering 30-50 integrals from past exams. Students will have 30-60s to identify the correct method of integration and any other relevant information, then we’ll discuss the solution briefly as a group. $5-7 for Mastery Students; $20 for others. Please RSVP with Adaam at McGill.Calc.Help -at- gmail.com; space is limited. Interested students should be proficient with the basics of each method of integration.

Final Review Session: Tuesday April 8th, 6-9pm, M3-17B on the third floor of McLennan. This will be a mock-final based on the sample final provided by Hundemer. In the fall term, his sample 140 final matched the actual exam very closely both in format and difficulty. As such, I’ll be writing a new exam similar to the sample in those respects, but with different questions. Students will have short intervals for attempting the problems followed by a brief discussion of the solution, as a group. $40, $10 off if you bring a friend. Please RSVP with Adaam at McGill.Calc.Help -at- gmail.com. See full details at the MATH 141 page.

Good luck with finals!

MATH 141 – Crash Course

Panicked about cal 2? Haven’t really started to review yet? No worries – we’ve got you covered :D. We’ll be running a crash-course for MATH 141 starting next Wednesday, April 9th, 2014. The aim of the crash will be to teach you the basics of everything you need to succeed and help you focus your studying most efficiently. The schedule:

  • Wednesday April 9th, 7:30-10:30pm – Methods of Integration: learn to integrate any expression. This session includes >100 examples from past exams as well as a complete summary and accessible explanation of each method of integration.
  • Thursday April 10th, 7:30-10:30pm – Applications of Integration: areas, volumes, arc-lengths, surface areas, FTC I&II, MVT. Learn to relate all these subjects to each other and reduce the load on your memory – includes simple explanations that will make the material intuitive and accessible.
  • Friday April 11th, 7:30-10:30pm – Polar & Parametric Everything: this session will cover everything from basic derivatives and tangent lines to curve-sketching, areas, lengths, surface area & more. We’ll look at tons of questions from past exams and consider strategies for dealing with these questions.
  • Saturday April 12th, 3:30-6:30pm – Sequences and Series: discover the easy way to understand sequences and series. We’ll review the tests for convergence and divergence and explain the logic behind them so that you can develop strong intuition about the behaviour of series. You’ll learn to assess the convergence /divergence of most exam-level series at a glance, as well as how to structure a formal solution.

This a small group crash course, which guarantees optimal interaction with the teacher. Sessions are $80/each or all 4 for $210, including detailed notes and tons of practice problems. For more information or to register, contact us at mcgill.calc.help -at- gmail.com.

MATH 141 – Mastery Sessions

The second MATH 141 Mastery Session in preparation for the final exam will be tomorrow, Saturday March 29th from 12:30pm-3:30pm. Mastery 2 – Pre-session Worksheet Be sure to work through the questions and do a quick review of these topics so that you’re familiar with their basic application. As usual, the focus of the session will not be on understanding the ideas at an introductory level; rather, we’ll spend most of our time solving advanced exam-level questions and developing strategies for doing so. See you there!
