When evaluating mathematical expressions, be sure to follow the order of operations:
1) G: Groupings. These include parentheses, brackets, and braces.
2) E: Exponents. This includes roots and radicals.
3) M and D: Multiplication or Division. These both have the same "weight" so when you get to this step do whichever operation comes first when working from left to right.
4) A and S: Addition or Subtraction. These both have the same "weight" so when you get to this step do whichever operation comes first when working from left to right.
The main types of numbers are:
|What can a math tutor do?|
|We can...||We cannot...|
|Help you find new ways to approach a problem||Give you solutions for a problem|
|Show you how to take and use good notes||Teach you the material from scratch (you must attend class, watch instructional videos, and read your textbook!)|
|Provide support and encouragement||Sit with you through every quiz or test|
|Work with you on examples to help you understand the steps and concepts||Work with you on examples while you're taking an exam.|
|Help you understand and interpret questions||Walk you through step-by-step calculations for quizzes or tests|
|Show you how to use your calculator effectively||Tell you if an answer to a quiz or test question is right or wrong before it's submitted|
