lol sif it took you the whole day for just one chapter, and all that chapter is is just like rationalising denominators and adding/subtracting/multiply/diving fractions, and solving algebraic eqns, thats couldnt have taken too long

I would do solutions for textbooks but:

1. I dont have many textbooks ( all I have are maths in focus yr11 and cambridge 3unit yr11 )

2. It would require a ton of ink/pens

3. Very few people are likely to appreciate it so I just decide not to bother, not much point going out of my way, using my time and resources to attempt to help ppl if no one is going to appreciate it

Once my uni finished last year ( november last year ) I was actually seriously thinking about making a fair few you tube videos for most topics of 2unit and 3unit maths as I had ( and still have ) alot of free time, but then I decided it wasnt worth it.

What was the point of me going out to pay a lot of money to get a camera that could record videos , to make these videos, only to have no one appreciate it. Everyone on this site doesnt seem to like to hear the truth that I speak and there is some sort of mass hate against me on this site lol, and absolutely no one replied to my tutoring ad in ages. So why the hell should I give any of the jerks on this site access to free help.

Khan Academy already has a bunch of videos that cover most things for Maths. Not to say that it wouldn't have been good of you to do it, because it wouldn't been extremely good.

I have seen Khan academy but there is alot of hsc content that is missed in those videos, and I was thinking about going through each individual topic ( ie one video for number topic, rounding , sig figs , rationalising denominators etc , then another video on solving algebraic eqns ( linear and quadratic ( by both formula, completing the square and factoring ) simultaneous eqns ) etc .... and doing like a 15min video that would have a thorough explaination of the theory with like 3-4 relatively hard examples on the chapter

RAWF, dude.. There are like 12 sets, each set has at least 50 questions, so like 600 questions in total. Not to bad to get that done in 1 day, thats like a question a minute for 10 hours straight, plus I took my time to make it neat, loooooool.

Some of the extension questions are tricky too! I was surprised at how tricky they were, as we used a different text at school

Then I looked at the next few chapters and was like cbf doing all the graphs, lol.

U should do those videos BOF2, Im sure ppl would appreciate it, if they are any good, lol

lol the graph questions do go just a tad overboard, I remember reading one about a "medley of graphs" , but it is all good revision, most of them are really easy, it would take you longer to draw up the axes than it would to figure out what it looked like

lol what makes you think they wouldnt have been

I know that currently "Maths Online" has videos for MOST topics ( but not all topics in 2u/3u ) , and many of the videos they do have (in my opinion ) do not go over the theory as much as they could, and the examples they work through/ the revision problems they have at the end of the chapter are too easy, I was thinking of trying to make videos which were better and more helpful than the maths online ones !!! .


I probably would if I just had a camera that would record videos just lying around or if I knew someone that I could I borrow one off for the sake of making the videos , but since I would have to go out and buy one its not really worth my while trying to make the videos. I will have to shell out a fair bit of money to get this camera ( and this is the only thing I would really ever use it for ) and even when I made the videos I would still get rediculous amounts of negative rep from the people on this site and it wouldnt have helped me all in my cause to try and get tutoring students.


So stuff it, no videos or textbooks solutions for anyone :|

If you hate BoS so much why do you still stay?
I dont really know to be honest, I know I really shouldnt stay on bored of studies as I keep getting used and hated on, but there is just something in my giving nature that finds it hard to refuse people help with their maths questions

Well what was causing all the hate. You seem pretty helpful in your comments so why would people hate on you?

lol everyone rates me down because I bag out the tryhards on this site, like every minute there is a tryhard putting up a thread worried about their ATAR when they actually have pretty good marks, and then on top of all that the arrogance from the people on here that got 99.95ATAR and/or thoses that did 4unit math. Amazing how some naive teenagers have got the idea in their head that you must have done 4unit maths to tutor even 2unit maths.

lol there is one guy from the 2010 HSC that got 99.95ATAR and is charging $50/hr for tutoring, more than some experienced/qualified high school students would charge, and somehow he got students but I havent got a single reply because I only got 95.15 ATAR ( but I still got 98/100 for 2unit math and 47/50 for 3unit maths ). Makes little sense :|

Fundemental qualities of a good tutor (or any employee at a reputable firm): Must have a professional work ethic and must know how to treat others with respect and maturity.

You lack all of these qualities quite severely.

"Must have a professional work ethic " - how do you know I dont have this??

"Must know how to treat others with respect and maturity. " - I do know how to , just that I choose not to with certain tryhards on this site

Like you can talk, you are still hiding behind Anonymity , you are more than happy to write shit bout me here but you still havent revealed who you are, are you afraid that I am going to bash you or something?? For someone that is very big and seems ( well from these forums ) to be very aggressive , I am actually rather tolerant of people in person and it takes a fair bit to set me off into violence, ask anyone that graduated from south sydney high school in 2009 and I gaurantee they will confirm my harmless character
