About Me

 

I am a high school that is on a mission to improve math education. I was that student that sat in the back of class frustrated with the boredom of class and the lack of understanding. I made the decision to become a math teacher to make a difference in others lives. I knew that with the struggles I had I could relate well to students that struggled with math. With a weak math background I set out to get a degree in mathematics. In was a difficult journey and I worked very hard not just to pass my math classes but to have an understanding of what I was doing. I learned a lot about myself, mathematics and what it takes to be successful in class through my time at college. I want to pass along my experience to you the student so that may have your own success with mathematics.

Hi Mr.McLogan, I am a 20 year old student and I am almost done my online precalc summer class (it is hell haha) and your videos helped me through a lot of the things I struggled with. My story is a lot like yours, I never really tried to learn in math class and occasionally when I did try, I would lose focus very quickly and go back to not paying attention. This is my first “advanced” math class and learning it online is a blessing and a curse. On one hand, I get to go at my own pace, the downside of that is I get to go at my own pace. I started working full time for my fathers landscaping business a few months before summer started and in Pennsylvania that means there is a ton of work to do in 80+ degree weather. When I get home, the last thing I want to do is sit at my computer and cram multiple assignments a day. Your videos have alleviated some of my precalc induced headaches and I appreciate it very much. Hopefully you read this because I wanted you to know how much you help students like me everyday, in your classroom and all over the world.
Thank you and have a nice summer,
Jake

Hi, my name is PK and I’m trying to figure out a very complicated equation for my level. I’m only in my third year of high school but am on a robotics team and need to figure out this very specific equation. I’ve looked all over the internet and can’t find a good website to answer the question and no tutorials can tell me how. I saw your youtube videos and thought you might be able to do it, it might even be a good challenge. The equation is: gcos(a) = -((rsin(b))/(rcos(b)))(gsin(a)-rsin(b))+rcos(b). Im trying to solve in terms of b. I would appreciate if you could give me the answer.

Hello,
Congratulations for your excellent work!
I’m a mathematician, math app developer and lastly author.
I’m thinking to publish a Revision Math Guide (ebook) in which I’ll embed some video tutorials like yours.
Are you interested to discuss the option to give me the permission for using some of your videos?
Thank you
Best Regards

Hi Brian,
I’m a 35 year old Territory Sales Manager with a BBA. A year ago I decided to return to school and make a course correction in my professional life, at least that is how I pitched it to the wife. I’m currently a Data Science student at Washington State University and haven’t used my Algebra/ Calculus “hat” in about 15 years, i’m sure you can see my predicament. Your videos have become a trusty resource when I run into a problem or concept i’ve not heard in 15-20 years.

Thanks for your help!

I just wanted to take a moment to say how much I appreciate your help with my math 30-1 course. I am an adult student (59) who has had to enter a retraining program with our Workers Compensation Board here in Alberta Canada. I was a Red Seal Electrician for over forty years working through out Alberta and as a result of those many years of heavy work I’ve had both my shoulders completely replaced. I have been working extremely hard, not only to upgrade my marks in math, but physics as well in order to meet the entrance requirements of a course that I will hopefully be taking this fall at S.A.I.T. our poly science institute here. As I started at a very young age into the trade, I was lacking in my high school courses,(when I left school the calculators were just coming out) I’ve had to educate myself on everything from the courses to how to use a calculator…. I really gained allot from your videos in all aspects of math and just wanted to say,,,, thank you
