Math Tutor

Get a handle on those concepts in maths that you missed out on at school, or can't remember, writes Tracey Whyte, Subject Librarian for Education at Berwick.

If you want to build your mathematical skills and confidence then go to Math Tutor online.

The Library provides access to this excellent resource via the Kanopy streaming database and you can access it via the Library's Search tool.

"The Math Tutor Collection offers a selection offers video tutorials on topics from secondary mathematics, aimed at students who wish to revise these topics in preparation for study at University, but equally useful for those meeting this content for the first time.

"I recommended some of the videos in the 'Sequences and Series' topic to my students, because I thought the content was clearly and thoroughly explained, and might support those students who were meeting this content for the first time."

(Monica Baker, lecturer, PhD student and maths teacher)

The content covers over 80 mathematics topics and provides diagrams and worked examples to clearly explain mathematical concepts. There are a series of eight videos to watch:
  • Geometry and Vectors
  • Algebra
  • Integration
  • Arithmetic
  • Trigonometry
  • Functions and graphs
  • Sequences and series
  • Differentiation
Each topic describes the subjects taught within each video and displays between five and 11 clips ranging from 10 minutes to over an hour.

For those who want to challenge their skills a bit more, Math Tutor has created a website that contains these videos with diagnostic tests, exercises and a pdf text version. These resources are available from the Math Tutor website.
