To quote the Terminator, I’m back! After being absent for a few months while our office moved from the central US to central Europe, we are planning to spend more time in the next few weeks getting ready for fall semester. In addition to adding videos and practice problems in all subjects as we come across them, our main focus will be to more fully develop the multi-variable calculus pages, mostly in the area of vector analysis.
As usual, if you have a specific area that you would like us to work on, feel free to leave a comment here or go to 17calculus and leave a message in the help box in the lower right corner of the screen. You can also email us at the address found on the about page.
Make sure not to waste your summer by studying too much or too little. Spend a lot time relaxing but also take a few hours (at least 10) every week to go over some of the material from your spring courses so that you don’t lose that newly-learned material.
Also, keep an eye on your schedule for fall. Summer is a great time to get a head-start on your fall classes. Here are a few ideas.
- Get your textbooks early, now, if you haven’t already. Scan through them and read carefully the first 2 or 3 chapters.
- See if you can get a syllabus from a previous semester (preferably from the same teacher that you will have) to get an idea of where your instructor will start. Start reading and studying now.
- Read books on how to be a better student. You probably didn’t learn how to be a good student before college. It is something that needs to be developed and studied separately. You will find some books in the
- Go back to your spring semester material to review difficult material that you struggled with. This is especially important if the material was a prerequisite for a class coming up this fall or later in your degree program.
But most of all, relax. Your mind and body need to rest after the intensity of later year. Take care of yourself with proper rest, exercise and nutrition.
See you in the fall!
