Description

This course is designed to give you an intuitive understanding of sin(θ), cos(θ) and tan(θ) in VCE Maths Methods. We took all the major concepts and simplified them into plain English using animations and visual effects, not just endless symbols and equations.

It can help you understand questions more thoroughly, concentrate more effectively in your studies and reduce the stress that comes with not understanding the content.

It covers the "Functions and Relations" section but not the calculus section on sin(θ), cos(θ) and tan(θ) in VCE Mathematical Methods (CAS).

It is designed for Units 3 and 4 (Year 12) but would also be applicable for Units 1 and 2 (Year 11).


Contents and Overview

This course is aimed at any student who is struggling in Methods. It has 11 tutorials that explain each of the major concepts step by step and in detail.


Why do students struggle in Maths?

Classes move so fast and cover so many topics that it's easy for them to miss a few key concepts.

Suddenly, Maths is no longer a logical subject but a painful experience where they try to remember how to answer questions rather than actually understanding the content.


How can we help?

We simplify Methods so that they understand the fundamentals of what they are studying and really understand what the question is asking rather than hoping that they remember how to answer it.

Practice is key but there is no point spending hundreds of hours on questions if they don't really know what they are doing: as they simply won't get the results they deserve.


The Solution

Our tutorials contain every major concept in the topic and are full of animations and visual effects and only contain simple, non-technical explanations. They are designed to give students an intuitive understanding of the subject which in turn increases concentration and makes VCE a lot less stressful for everyone.

Who is the target audience?
  • Designed for Year 12 VCE Maths Methods students
  • Also suitable for Year 11 VCE Maths Methods students

Degrees in Mathematics/Astrophysics, Philosophy and Classics

A Monash University Graduate with degrees in Mathematics/Astrophysics, Philosophy and Classics who specialises in teaching Year 12 VCE Maths Methods.

I have trained and educated people all around the globe for many years and concluded that there must be a way to teach Maths other than just with equations and practise.

After spending thousands of hours researching the terminology, symbols and concepts of Mathematics, it became clear that it could be taught much more intuitively.

From that point, I started teaching Mathematics almost like it was a Humanities subject: defining all the symbols and terminology, providing simple explanations and using lots of pictures and animations. Students began to understand Maths using common sense instead of complex proofs because they could visualise the concepts rather than just accept them.

I often found that if students were taught the basics then they would figure out the more complex ideas all by themselves. They learnt things quicker, became less stressed and could concentrate on their school work more effectively.

With the aid of a visual designer, an IT professional and a couple of videography experts, I spent next six months researching and developing the most effective way to teach students online. The culmination of all this work: easy to understand, online tutorials full of animations and visual effects that will revolutionise the way students learn Maths.
