** Specializing in Algebra
I am a college professor who loves getting others to understand mathematical concepts. My philosophy
is TEACH TO UNDERSTAND. It is not a series of formulas to memorize and shouldn't be taught that way. In addition, math
should not be explained just to pass a test (including standardized tests).
All students learn differently but ALL reinforce their understanding by doing. I keep students on track and engaged.
MY PROFESSIONAL BACKGROUND: I am currently teaching statistics and algebra at two local colleges. I also teach the math module for a local union apprentice program (mostly applications of geometry
). I have passed all exams needed to be a certified NYS math teacher and only need to take education courses to pursue this career. I was a pension actuary for 10 years and passed all exams to become an associate of the Society of Actuaries and an enrolled actuary (ASA and EA designations). I decided to leave the field to pursue a career in teaching. During the 2011-2012 school year, I taught business
math at a private all boys high school in Lawrence.
MY PERSONAL BACKGROUND: I was a Cub Scout scout leader for 8 years holding the positions of treasurer, committee chair and Cubmaster. My youngest son moved on to Boy Scouts in 2011 - let's just say I finally have time on my hands to be able to tutor. I am currently the Committee Chair my our local Boy Scout Troop. I have been tutoring friends or their children on an informal basis since I was 15 years old.
I mostly enjoy tutoring one-on-one and teaching at the high school and college level because of the dedication and feedback from the students.
Contact me so I can help you or your child understand math.

Question - is 114 the standard deviation or the variance of the distribution? I'll assume the variance given its relative size to the mean 515.
Step 1) You will have to find the z-score such that 20% of the area under the Standard Normal Distribution Curve lies to the right...
A standardize score of +1.23 represents that the raw score is 1.23 standard deviations ABOVE the mean. (NOTE: If the standardized score was -1.23, then the raw score would be 1.23 standard deviations BELOW the mean)
The mean is 100 and the size of the standard deviation...
"What is the probability that no consecutive heads occur on three tosses of a coin?" This can be interpreted to include any occurrences of HH as well as HHH on the 3 tosses.
Using Vivian's set of all possibilities, "no consecutive heads" appear on outcomes...
