The Trigonometry And Pre-Calculus Tutor is a 5 hour DVD course geared to fully prepare a student to enter university level Calculus. Most students that have trouble with Calculus discover quickly that the root cause of their difficulty is actually that they have never mastered essential material in Trigonometry. For instance, a Calculus textbook will assume that the student is comfortable converting between degrees and radians and can use the unit circle to mentally calculate the Sin of an angle without a calculator. These topics and many other essential concepts are presented in this DVD course with exceptional clarity so that the student will feel well prepared to move into Calculus and Physics.
How are the MathTutorDVD.com line of DVDs different from others?
The answer is simple. Most math instruction involves a lengthy discussion of the abstract theory behind the Math before instructing the student in how to solve problems. While there are some merits to this style, in the vast majority of the cases the student quickly gets bored and frustrated by the time he or she starts to solve the problems. This DVD, in contrast, teaches all of the concepts by working fully narrated problems step-by-step, which is a much more engaging way to learn.
Exceptional value and affordability.
MathTutorDVD.com believes in providing value for our customers. This is a 5 Hour DVD course. We could have easily split this content into many DVD courses costing the same price but instead chose to keep the cost down so that this content is affordable to all.
What is our teaching style like?
All topics on this DVD are taught by working example problems. There are no traditional lectures of background material that won't help you solve problems and improve your skills. We believe in teaching-by-doing and that is what you will receive by watching this DVD. Solving logarithmic equations is explained, for example, by working many problems in step-by-step detail. We begin with the easier problems and work our way up to the harder problems. The student immediately gains confidence, does not get bored, and quickly feels like he or she can conquer the material. This method is extremely powerful and has proven itself time and again. Perhaps most importantly, problem solving skills are honed early on that will help with homework and taking exams even after watching the very first lesson.
