About me

My name is Solly Coles, I am a second year studying Mathematics at UoB. 

I will be able to provide concise, easy to understand solutions to problems I am asked about. One of the best ways to work with mathematics is to work with specific examples until ideas can be generalised. This process will form the main structure of my sessions.

The A-Levels I studied were Maths, Further Maths, Psychology, and Music.I have always been enthusiastic about teaching others (with maths and music in particular) and I find that teaching others is one of the best ways to learn things for oneself. This is why my tutoring style is likely to be very interactive; to the point that the tutee feels they could explain whatever concept we are dealing with to me.

I am incredibly passionate about maths, I have always enjoyed it at school and often read about it in my spare time. If necessary this means I can answer questions based on general mathematical interest, questions that are not necessarily related to the tutee's homework or exam etc.

My other interests involve playing various musical instruments, including Drums, Guitar, and Piano. I also like playing a few sports, including tennis and football.

Questions Solly has answered

How do we differentiate y = arctan(x)?

Step 1: Rearrange y = arctan(x) as tan(y) = x.

Step 2: Use implicit differentiation to differentiate this with respect to x, which gives us:

(dy/dx)*(sec(y))^2 = 1.

Step 3: Rearrange this equation to give us:

dy/dx = 1/(sec(y))^2.

Step 4: Use a trigonometric identity to substitute and find that:

dy/dx = 1/(1+((tan(y))^2).

Step 5: Recall that x = tan(y) and substitute this to find: 

dy/dx = 1/(1+x^2).

Done.
