Hey, Mom! Talking to My Mother #604 - Calculus Video Resources part one


Hey, Mom! Talking to My Mother #604 - Calculus Video Resources part one

Hi Mom,

Guess what?

I have video homework.

I think a lot about your own studies and what it would be like for you if you were in school now. You were such an over-achiever. I use you as my standard for excellence. I can never do as much homework as you did. The way you listened to recorded lectures multiple times, the way you re-copied notes multiple times, all the extra work you did with work books and whatnot. I can only imagine how amazing it would be if you could look at videos, too. Wow.

My teacher ha asked for additional videos for Calculus and why they were helpful for which she will award some extra credit.

How about this? I added a few extra here on this page plus all those she shared. I will continue to share extra ones in future blog entries.

I like videos especially for problems like the optimization and related rates problem. I just watched a related rates video and was impressed with the mnemonic for related rates work: DREDS: diagram, label rates, find equation, take derivative, substitute specific information.

I also liked the tricks for memorizing the unit circle, which I had already worked on with a tutor.

I have watched most of these videos, but I have created this entry so I can make sure I watch them all and maybe more than once. I would like to find more examples.

But my professor asked for extra videos on the chain rule.

I like KHAN Academy quite a lot. I have referenced its services quite a lot for many different problems and math issues.

KHAN ACADEMY ON YOU TUBE

So, my first example is Khan. It has great graphics and the explanations are clear and easy to understand.

Is the power of videos that people would rather watch videos to learn than to read the text book?

I am old school, so I still like the text books, but I may be a dinosaur.

Presentation is everything. So I also like Math BFF. Good presentation and nice scripting. Good graphics. I like the writing on a the camera lens effect. I wish I could make a video that looked like that.

I also like that Math BFF's Nancy did a good wrap up at the end with a "quick quiz." She closed with a trig problem. Nice. :-)

I like Math BFF's presentation. I also like that she explained when you do and do not need to use the chain rule. This is similar for when to use the Quotient rule and when not to use it. I was discussing with my tutor Anthony on how we both try to turn quotients into products to avoid the quotient rule, but his mnemonic -- BDT-TDB/B^2 -- makes it easier for me to remember.

I plan to watch more. These are my two go to choices - Math BFF and Khan Academy.

That's all for today, Mom. Lots of studying, and I plan to do tons of chain rule over spring break and catch up on homework I missed.

Here's another example of a video from Khan Academy, Mom.



So, I made a playlist for all the video resources posted by my professor, Doctor Koelling. It's here:

I miss you so very much, Mom.

NOTE on time: When I post late, I had been posting at 7:10 a.m. because Google is on Pacific Time, and so this is really 10:10 EDT. However, it still shows up on the blog in Pacific time. So, I am going to start posting at 10:10 a.m. Pacific time, intending this to be 10:10 Eastern time. I know this only matters to me, and to you, Mom. But I am not going back and changing all the 7:10 a.m. times. But I will run this note for a while. Mom, you know that I am posting at 10:10 a.m. often because this is the time of your death.
