Calculus Tutoring North York

Calculus is a challenging subject for a lot of students. One challenge is the foundation gaps that students have from previous grades, such as factoring or graphing, combining with the complex concepts that students need to understand. Many students are accustomed to "plugging-in" formulas or memorizing steps. This will never work in Calculus. There are just too many variety of questions and students are required to work forward / backwards, combining different equations to solve a problem. The student also needs to understand when to use what, by recognizing clues on the question. This is always difficult for a lot of students.

The first step in our Calculus tutoring, is to explain the concept. Students need to understand what limits and derivative is, as well as the rationale behind the steps. We also rigorously go through the problems step by step, showing the tips on recognizing certain parts of the question and what methods to use. With good explanation and practice, student can advance and achieve good grades in both the Calculus course, including the tests and exams.

Common Challenges of Calculus students

Calculus Tutoring North York

1. Weak foundation skills in Calculus

We often advise that students should strengthen their foundation skills in grade 11 math and advanced functions. Most students are able to execute the first or second step in calculus, but fail to proceed and simplify the solution. Most of the marks, unfortunately, is allocated to these crucial steps, which tied to the student's foundation skills. The first lesson we do in calculus tutoring North York, is to review the foundation skills with the students. This includes factoring, domain and range, etc.

Inquiry for Calculus Tutoring North York: (905) 257 9009

Foundation skills checklist in Calculus

  1. Factoring (especially trinomial factoring)
  2. Domain and Range
  3. Basic graphing
  4. Rational functions
  5. Expanding polynomials
  6. Exponents
  7. Trigonometry (for trig derivatives)
  8. Logarithms (for log derivatives)
  1. Asymptotes
  2. Rationalizing functions
  3. Combining conjugates
  4. Slopes and Tangents
  5. Combining fractions with algebra
  6. Piece-wise functions
  7. Linear functions, substitution and eliminations

2. Word problems

This is common in calculus course and many of the units, and poses a major challenge for students. Most students are unable to connect the words and requirements to the equations, not knowing how to apply the concepts. Optimization and Related Rates, along with other application problems are difficult.

Our approach is focus on understanding, and teach our students in the way that they can understand. The next step is to show the student how to apply the concepts in a variety of scenarios.

3. Vectors

Vector consists of half of the calculus course, yet it is very different from the core concepts of calculus. It is more akin to linear algebra, with 3D graphing. Students without a physics background will find these units very difficult. The toughest part is that the concepts are all interconnected, and the student is required to understand these connections and apply the right approach to solve problems.

Our approach to vectors is to explain the why behind the steps, the rationale and how each concepts are connected. Memorizing equations in the vector units is of no use. The student needs to understand, not memorize.

How can math tutoring in North York help my child?

Math tutors may provide kids with the skills and talents they need to achieve not only in math (advanced functions, calculus, etc.) but throughout their academic careers by providing support and personalised study programmes. Math tutors assist kids gain confidence, improve study habits, and prepare for college by providing advanced content.

How can my child achieve higher grade?

If your child requires more one-on-one attention than their school can provide, private tutoring is a good option to public schooling. Higher exam scores, more subject matter knowledge, more time for individualised attention with fewer interruptions, and better grades are just a few of the benefits.

How is calculus used in real life?

Calculus is used to improve the architecture of essential infrastructures such as bridges, as well as buildings. Calculus (Integration) is used in Electrical Engineering to compute the exact length of electrical line required to connect two substations that are thousands of miles apart.

What is calculus example?

The procedure of computing the area beneath a graph of a function is known as integral calculus. Calculating the distance travelled by a car is an example: if one knows the speed of the automobile at various periods in time and draws a graph of this speed, the distance travelled by the car will be the area under the graph.

What math is used in calculus?

Calculus is a combination of algebra and trigonometry with the addition of limits, which aren't all that difficult once you figure them out. Calculus is usually only used for one step in the problem; the remainder is simplified using algebra and trigonometry.

How much does a calculus tutor cost?

Pricing is hourly and varies by tutor, with certified calculus tutors charging as low as $10 per hour and as much as $500 per hour.

How do I find a tutor for calculus?

You can discover calculus tutors in a variety of methods. Check local job boards at the community college, talk to a school counsellor, or put an ad on a site like Craigslist if you're searching for someone who can work with your child or yourself in person. The easiest way to do this is to contact us, Queen Elizabeth Academy, and ask about the courses you are interested in.

Is calculus hard to learn?

Calculus is a difficult and challenging subject for the majority of high school students. It serves as an introduction to higher-level mathematics for math majors. Calculus will be one of the simpler classes you take during your freshman and sophomore years if you desire to pursue a math degree.

Private Credit Course Overview

MCV4U / Calculus and Vectors is one of the most important Math courses in grade 12 for university admission

Calculus tutoring North York

MCV4U Calculus and Vectors - Course Description

Calculus tutoring North York

This course builds on students’ previous experience with functions and their developing understanding of rates of change. Students will solve problems involving geometric and algebraic representations of vectors and representations of lines and planes in three-dimensional space; broaden their understanding of rates of change to include the derivatives of polynomial, sinusoidal, exponential, rational, and radical functions; and apply these concepts and skills to the modelling of real-world relationships. Students will also refine their use of the mathematical processes necessary for success in senior mathematics. This course is intended for students who choose to pursue careers in fields such as science, engineering, economics, and some areas of business, including those students who will be required to take a university-level calculus, linear algebra, or physics course.

What is taking MCV4U Calculus and Vectors like?

Calculus tutoring North York

There are two different sections in this course; the first is derivative or extends from work in Advanced Functions; the second other is Vectors, which, unlike the first, is totally new. Vectors are essentially similar to Physics when it comes to problem-solving.

The derivative section takes root in work done in Advanced Functions and will typically include algebra, graphing, trigonometry, and logarithms.

The vector aspect of the course includes 3D equations of lines and planes. Because of the similarity of vector problem-solving to physics, many students find this course component more complicated than the first one.

Tips to succeed in MCV4U Calculus and Vectors

Calculus tutoring North York

For students to succeed in Vector Calculus, they must be proficient in exponents, factoring, combining rational expressions such as fractions with algebra, and solving equations.

You want to pay special attention to the Optimization Unit, which usually includes many word problems. However, if you have trouble dealing with word problems, be sure to prepare for this unit in particular. Do not forget to keep your notes organized while you identify the different kinds of problems. This will significantly help you to clarify the concepts in the course, and to keep track of your progress.

The concepts of vectors are very complex. So when approaching vector problems, be sure to layout and write down all of the steps clearly. Also, write down why such steps are necessary. For instance, what variable are you attempting to achieve with each step? This approach will undoubtedly simplify even more complicated questions and allow you to easily identify areas where you need additional help.
