1. ## Re: Official BMGf Homework Tutor/Help Thread

I love helping people!

Best subject: Really, it's Math. Algebra and Pre-Algebra mainly, but I'm willing to help with anything~ What I don't know, I'll learn!
I'm also mildly good with Science; not in the extremity, but I dabble in each bit of it here and there.
English/Reading is a strong point of mine. I love reading, so I have a slightly more capacious vocabulary than the average citizen. I adore large words~

I'm only in eighth grade, but I got a 25 on my ACT! That should be worth something...

Anyone wish to explain how the Mean Value Theorem works? I thing f(c) is equal to the point where the tangent line is || to the secent line, does that point have a name? And how to find average velocity or acceleration usign dirivatives.

3. ## Re: Official BMGf Homework Tutor/Help Thread

Best Subject(s): Music, Language Arts (proof-reading is my best area)

This is so weird... considering I'm part of a tutoring club and we had a session today 0_o

Basically the mean value theorem says that on the closed interval [a,b], there is a number c where f'(c)= slope of the secant line from [a,b].

This would be so much easier to explain if I could draw you a picture.

c doesn't have a name besides (c,f(c)).

Velocity is the derivative of a position function, acceleration is the derivative of a velocity function.

Yeah, I asked my teacher after class, he said the exact same thing

s(t) to v(t) to a(t), all be derivatives of the earlier function.

Hey, I'm hurristat... great in math, physics, chemistry, and history, decent in lit and spanish (although I can edit like no other), and don't ask me about biology. I'll prolly stop by here often.

Could you please put me up there?

best subject: Algabra

8. ## Re: Official BMGf Homework Tutor/Help Thread

Gah--I can never seem to remember everything I need to check when I'm online. If anyone has a need for me, please VM or PM me, alrighty?

Best Subject: Science (Earth Studies, matter Studies, a bit of Chemical Studies, and Zoology, as well as Biology)

Anybidy have any tips with understanding the Pythagorean Theoreom? I'm learnign it now, and I need some help..

a^2 = b^2 + c^2 where a is the hypotenuse and b and c are the other lengths.

11. ## Re: Official BMGf Homework Tutor/Help Thread

isn't it c square = a square + b square?

That's what my book says..

The point is: the length of the hypotenuse squared = the sum of the other two lengths squared.

13. ## Re: Official BMGf Homework Tutor/Help Thread

So..

ex. 5 square + 6 square= 25+ 36= 61?

Is that right?

Yes. So the hypotenuse would be the square root of 61.

15. ## Re: Official BMGf Homework Tutor/Help Thread

which is....√61?

I think I got this now.
