Description

This method works! I’ve tested it for over 10 years of teaching Electrical and Computer Engineering.

Once the students get the hang of this method, their Physics, Math and other STEM classes become much, much less of a challenge, so they can concentrate on solid learning.

 

Why should you take this course?

Because when it comes to textbook problem solving, you probably were wrongly taught to mimic your teachers.

  • Can you always produce the answer to the problems that are presented to you?
  • While solving a textbook problem on your own, have you gotten to the point where you don’t know what to do next?
  • In class, have you found yourself asking “How did the teacher come up with that step?” or “How did the teacher know we had to use that equation?” or “How was I supposed to know that?” ?
Who this course is for:
  • Students at any academic level, struggling with problems of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics.
  • Engineering Students, our specialty.
  • Casual students at STEM.
