## Homeschool Math Support and Accelerated Math Development for Public and Private School Students

I have been working with a few students who are ready to learn math much, MUCH faster than allowed by the traditional classroom model in which math is taught over 6 to 8 years. Based on this experience I believe that many students as young as 4th grade and as old as 8th grade (when starting in the program) can master math in 2 years from simple addition through the first semester of Calculus, with Arithmetic, Algebra 1, Geometry, Algebra 2, Precalculus, Probability, Statistics, and Trigonometry in between.

This is significantly faster than the traditional approach and is enabled by a combination...

## Physical Exercise and Nutrition DO affect our brain performance and brain health.

As you may know, I am a big fan of the well-known author and brain specialist, Dr. Daniel Amen. He mentions in several of his books that Physical Exercise is good for the brain. I have read of research studies that showed a clear correlation between IMPROVEMENT in students' test scores in math and science, and their level of physical activity (for example, when math class followed PE class, the students had significantly higher scores). Maybe we should schedule PE before all math classes in our schools. What do you think about that idea?

This morning I read an online article on the myhealthnewsdaily...

## Recommended Statistics Learning Strategies - Experienced Subject Matter Expert

My recommended strategy to Students at all academic levels for learning and successfully passing the course at all modalities (on-line, on-ground) is the culmination of at least ten years of teaching and tutoring statistics at the undergraduate, graduate, and post-graduate levels in business, management, sciences, social studies, and psychology. It consists of the following:

1. The first is to learn how to overcome fear and anxiety from the unknown and look at tutoring as a prudent investment to your immediate future and success. Engage the tutor from the start of the course and don't prolong...

## When is the best time to ask for help?

The best time to ask for help is immediately. It's true in all circumstances, no matter what course or project you're working on. It's true no matter how much or how little background you have in a topic. Get an early start, and address issues head-on. From years of experience, I know that seeking EARLY assistance is the single best action any student can take. Being proactive is the first step to mastery!

## Statistics for beginners and beyond

FIVE TIPS FOR DEVELOPING SKILL:

Tip #1. Practice: Practice with homework problems and with problems in your textbook. As with any new skill, practice leads to increased competence.

Tip #2. Keep your sense of humor: Anxiety may be your worst enemy in learning statistics. It's difficult to think clearly if you're surrounded by a cloud of panic. Do try to keep statistics in perspective and even look for ways to make the coursework fun for yourself. Should you find yourself overwhelmed, contact me or another tutor to help you get back on track.

Tip #3. Be patient with yourself: Learning statistics...

## Using current events to explain statistical ideas

It is often examples that make ideas understandable to students and current events can be a good source of examples. Case in point. Today in Wisconsin, the issue of the day is the outcome of the recall elections and problems with the exit polling. As a tutor, the outcome isn’t interesting, but exit polling like all surveys is key to the usefulness of statistics! In fact, it gives a great opportunity to illustrate some of the basic (and non-mathematical) ideas and concepts of statistics — usually the ideas presented at the beginning of most introduction-to-statistics courses.
