    Okay I've got one week of summer school left and I will fail the course if I don't pass the next two tests with good grades. Does anyone know where to find a good online tutor for Math (Matrix Algebra)? I've checked out youtube and my favorite guy for math stuff (patrickjmt) has no videos on what we're going through. So any good suggestions would be appreciated or even a place where easy and good notes can be found would be great too. The math tutors don't know ship about it.

    Test is on Thursday (over eigenvalues and eigenvectors), final comprehensive exam is on Friday. I know fitness site, but I'm getting beyond desperate.

    You created the situation you're in by waiting until less than a week before the tests to ask for help.
    You deserve to fail.

    Give the guy a break. Would you swear on your porn collection that you had never studied the night before the exam icon_confused.gif

    Matrix is easy well I'm Asian so math is kinda in my blood but it could be confusing. So what do you have a problem with?

    No, he does not deserve to fail. That's a terrible thing to say to someone you do not know. But you deserve a new box of these:

    Time to insert a fresh dry one. Cuz the old one's in need of changing and basically I have to find some reason to justify your cuntiness.



    Agreed.

    Contact your favorite math guy on youtube and ask him if he'll do a video about it or give you some pointers.
    If he says no, offer him a bj.

    Actually I blocked Webster666, so I never would have known what he said if people hadn't of pointed it out. icon_razz.gif

    Plus (to webster666 and all) it was just one concept that was messing me up, without that one concept you can't finish solving the rest of the problem which I know pretty well how to do most of the things in my class. Math builds upon itself (well in this class at least), concepts you learned earlier are needed to learn the more advanced topics.

    Anyways today I was able to figure it out while waiting for the class. So thank you very, very, very, very much to all who responded with help or with comments on math. icon_biggrin.gif Most days math comes easily to me, but like I said the teachers/tutors aren't very good here so it's like asking yourself how to solve something when you don't have any clue how to do so.

    Your OP post made me think that you goofed off, all semester, and were just now trying to figure out a way to pass your tests. Never the less, you waited way too long to ask for help.

    It was very heartening to read that you figured it out for yourself.
    That should mean that you will do well on your tests.
    I sincerely hope so.

    I'm also taking a summer (advanced) Math class and my professor gave us this weblink for homework and even class work. I don't know if this would be of any help.

    think of it this way, Mathematics is like magic, you dont have to understand it, just believe it ;) Good Luck on your test.
