John McIntosh: Thanks for sharing, Shane. Here is a list of open source math packages: http://www.opensourcemath.org/opensource_math.html


Shane Browning: Of course the mandatory xkcd Mathematica plotting utility: http://blog.wolfram.com/2012/10/05/automating-xkcd-diagrams-transforming-serious-to-funny/ is pretty cool.

How To Solve Math Problems Effortlessly

In spite of the geographical divisions, every kid all over the world has one thing in common. And most of the time, this is not a pleasurable or positive thing. Believe it or not, it is the subject of Mathematics.

Mathematics is a subject that most students find difficult. Do not take us wrong, some students love Math and it is not an isolated case. But if we are going to be honest and realistic, we will find out that most people hate studying maths despite underscoring the importance of the subject for students. Most university courses include some level of maths while almost every profession uses maths in some form on a daily basis. The problem many students have is that they don’t know how to study maths to get good results.

However, in all sincerity, we should not be afraid of math. We should not be, really. We need to accept that it is a difficult subject matter. What we need is a math tuition or tutorial to sharpen our arithmetic skills. Math tuitions in Singapore is very prevalent. You can subscribe to their tutorial services to help you out in beating Math.

Here are some of the tips and reminders, Math tuitions can provide you in order to have a meaningful experience in learning Math.

Practice, Practice & More Practice - Any subject can be mastered if you practice. Practicing is the best way to overcome a skill. While reading and listening to instructions are extremely important, It is impossible to study maths properly by just doing that. To study maths you have to roll up your sleeves and actually solve some problems.  The more you practice answering maths problems, the better. Each problem has its own characteristics and it’s important to have solved it in numerous ways before tackling the exam. There is no escaping this reality, to do well in a Maths exam you need to have solved a lot of mathematical problems beforehand.

Master the Math language - A crucial key, according to Math tuitions in Singapore, is understanding the Math language. A math problem is a sentence you have to understand the concepts behind it. As a student, you need to focus on understanding the process and logic that is involved. This will help you understand how you should approach such problems in the future. You have to have a firm understanding of the key concepts that underpin a mathematical topic before moving on to work on other, more complex solutions which are based on understanding the basics.

Apply Maths to Real World Problems - The main reason we are afraid of Math is because we don’t know if it is applicable to our daily life. This is the reason why Math tuitions advise us to, as much as possible, try to apply real-world problems when approaching maths. Maths can be very abstract sometimes so looking for a practical application can help change your perspective and assimilate ideas differently.
