About Basab

Tutoring and learning is a pleasurable and gratifying experience. I would like to prepare my students to be ready for accepting challenges in the global market place by increasing their learning horizon. One needs to achieve advance degree and knowledge to survive in an ever increasing advanced societies. Increased knowledge base facilitate international understanding and thereby enhance word peace, essential for quality of life abroad and here at home. My method of teaching is to create a learning environment for my student for fostering her/his confidence so that she/he can learn by herself/himself. I believe that at an early stage, student should not only master their present curriculum but able to step into the next higher level curriculum without much difficulties. In other words, I will be a facilitator to instill a concept to the student and the student will apply that concept in real world situation and solidify her/his understanding of the concept as well as extrapolate the conception.

I have studied for twenty two years between school and universities. I have a bachelor's degree in Electrical Engineering (top in the class), Master of Science in electrical engineering from LSU (GPA of 4.0/4.0), in computer science from University of Southern (GPA of 4.0/4.0) and in Project Engineering (GPA of 7.75/10.0).

Algebra 2

Algebra 2

It is one of the fundamental subjects to learn to pursue higher and advanced level mathematics. I have extensive background in mathematics based on my training and work experience.This course is an extension of Algebra I and also expands the knowledge of geometry and provides further development of the concept of a function. Topics include: (1) relations, functions, equations and inequalities; (2) polynomials; (3) algebraic fractions; (4) logarithmic and exponential functions; (5) sequences and series; and (6) counting principles and probability. In addition, students will learn about imaginary and complex numbers, conic sections, logarithms, functions, and operations with polynomial expressions.

C

C” is the programming language to learn for integrated understanding of both hardware and software and also to interface with other programming languages to produce very efficient programs in terms of execution speed and resource utilization and control over hardware. “C” forces one to build a mental model of what the computer is actually doing when running programs. As one asks why and keep digging for answers, the mental model will grow to encompass the process model, the CPU architecture, the memory hierarchy, the operating system, and so forth. It's that mental model — that will enable one to poke through the abstractions created by others, and write complex programs. I have both theoretical and industrial experience on the subject. I have a bachelor's degree in Electrical Engineering and master's degree both in Computer Science and Electrical Engineering. Over twenty years I have been a practicing Engineer and Software Developer and worked for aerospace industries. I developed many software by utilizing “C” programming language.

Differential Equations

I have studied and used this subject as an Electrical Engineer and Computer Scientist for modeling problems in various disciplines. I have in depth knowledge in the field of differential equations, which is a keystone of scientific knowledge today, with broad applications in mathematics, engineering, physics, and other scientific fields. Encompassing both basic concepts and advanced results, my knowledge base of Differential Equations is the definitive, hands-on introduction professionals and students need in order to gain a strong knowledge base applicable to the many different subfields of differential equations and dynamical systems.

Discrete Math

I have studied and used this subject for algorithm design and implementation in various disciplines. I have in depth knowledge as a Computer Scientist and Computer and Electrical Engineer who studied, used and taught applied discrete math. Fields of mathematics that are considered to be part of discrete mathematics include combinatorics, graph theory and the theory of computation. Topics in number theory such as congruence’s and recurrence relations are also considered part of discrete mathematics. The study of topics in discrete mathematics usually includes the study of algorithms, their implementations, and efficiencies. Discrete mathematics is the mathematical language of computer science, and as such, its importance has increased dramatically in recent decades.

My teaching method is to enhance the student’s fundamental understanding followed by extensive practice and critical thinking. I also emphasize 360 degree abstraction of the subject with multiple probable approaches to arrive at an optimal solution for design and development.

Finite Math

A "Finite Math" course will be something of a survey of everything that doesn't involve calculus, which can be a lot of topics. These topics can include statistics and probability (not intuitive for people new to the subject), matrix algebra (complicated), combinatorics (fancy counting, which can be confusing), linear optimization (more matrix algebra), symbolic logic, and mathematical modeling (lots of fun, really). I have a bachelor's degree in Electrical Engineering and master's degree both in Computer Science, Electrical Engineering and Project Engineering. I have studied and used this subject as antecedent to my advance math, with over 36 credit hours of classroom training.

Geometry

I have taught Geometry to students of different grade levels. It is one of the fundamental subjects to learn to pursue higher and advanced level mathematics. I have extensive background in mathematics based on my training and work experience.

Geometry is the study of the shape, size, and position of objects. Planar geometry focuses on 2D objects such as points, lines, triangles, quadrilaterals, polygons, and circles. Solid geometry includes the study of 3D objects such as prisms, pyramids, polyhedrons, cylinders, spheres and cones.
The name geometry comes from two Greek words meaning earth and to measure. The earliest uses of geometry included measuring lengths and areas of land. Most scholars believe that the ancient Egyptians and Babylonians were the first people to use geometry extensively.

Artists, engineers, cartographers, and designers use geometry in their work. Geometry is used anytime one decides to design or build something. One cannot build a box, a fence, a fighter jet or a paper crane without using geometry. The study of this subject also allows the students to develop and practice problem-solving skills using inductive and deductive reasoning. Students are guided through all the conceptual and working levels of the process using geometry. It uses two and three-dimensional geometric shapes and examines their properties, measurements, and mutual relations in space. Geometric proofs are used as a vehicle to systematically develop these problem solving skills by relating geometric shapes. Student will move on to higher-level math courses with an increased ability to apply algebra to the solution of problems involving measurement, physical relationships, and logical proof.
