About me

Who am I?

My name is Andrew, I'm in my second year studying Engineering Mathematics at Bristol. Ever since I was young I really enjoyed learning Maths, it was challenging yet rewarding. Whether you are struggling or just want to get better, I want to help you achieve that.

The session (What to expect)

Learning a topic

For the first 5 minutes, we will talk about the questions that you are finding difficult.

Then I will be teaching topic you requested to learn for the day.

A summary is given at the end.

Past papers

we can go through past papers to fine tune your exam taking skills. I will give you plenty of tips and tricks on breaking down a tricky problem. By the end of it you might even wonder why you were finding it so hard in the first place.

Maths is not impossible

Like any subject, maths becomes much easier once the confusion or missing knowledge has been revealed, with the right guidance and hard work it's possible to change and make maths fun, even if you think that's impossible at the moment. 

Motivation to teach others

Teaching others makes me appreciate my knowledge. I feel really happy when I know that I made a difference.

I volunteer to teach young kids to program. It's very rewarding.

Interests (short and concise)

Mathematician in the day, cyclist by night.

Programming random bits and bobs.

If you feel I am the right tutor for you, come and arrange a free meeting.

Hope to see soon.

Technical Definition: A way to approximate (very) smooth functions (for which derivatives up to high orders exist and are continuous)

 

Simple Definition: Taylor series is the infinite sum of all the terms for a specific function which is a very close approximation to the real value of the function. 

Mathematical definition:

f(x) = f(a) + (f'(a)(x-a))/1! + (f''(x)(x-a)2)/2! + (f'''(x)(x-a)3)/3! + ... + 

 

Why do we have an infinite number of terms?:

The more terms we include in our approximated function, the better the approximation to the real value. For a graph this means that it will represent the actual graph function more.

 

Special Case (Maclaurin Series):

Maclaurin series is based of the Taylor Series, but we choose the function to be around origin (value = 0) rather than anywhere else.

 

 

 

Advantage of using Taylor/Maclaurin series

its allows for incredibly accurate approximations of a function (depending on the number of terms included)

Provide for integration and differentiation of functions to arrive at representations of other function

 

Disadvantage of using Taylor/Maclaurin series

some calculations become tedious or the series doesn’t converge quickly

many of the functions are limited to a certain domain given a specific range for convergence (some Taylor series are only valid for a small domain)
