“This is too hard.” I don’t understand this. “Why did I choose this major?” “Why do I let myself suffer like this?” Okay, so I’m being melodramatic, but these thoughts run through my mind when I’m studying math. I acknowledge that math isn’t the hardest subject out there and everyone has their struggles with a subject. In my case, I love math, but I’m not the best at it. A lot had to do with me not knowing how to approach and study the material. I thought that it would be all computations like in calculus, but once I arrived to upper division math it wasn’t. After a few bad grades I learned that my approach for studying math was not working. I had to change my approach.

The first thing to keep in mind when studying college math is that it takes a lot of time and practice. You might not get the solution for a problem in the first attempt, second attempt or even third attempt. It might take you a dozen attempts so be patient with yourself. Also when you are reading math it’s not like reading a fiction novel. Math is very time consuming; sometimes you’ll be reading the material over and over until you grasp it. The first step is to know, understand and memorize all and any definitions given for the math course you are taking. For example, the definition of a set is a collection of objects or elements. So if we don’t know what an element is, we won’t understand what a set is. The definition of an element is the members of a set. Therefore, for any definitions that are given make sure you understand all the terminology involved in the definition. Carefully read and study the examples in the textbook and make examples for yourself until the definition becomes clear.

Second, make sure you understand all theorems and lemmas. A theorem in mathematics is a proposition that has been or is to be proved on the basis of explicit assumptions. (freedictionary.com) While a lemma is a secondary proposition assumed to be true and used to prove a theorem....

A student of the University of British Columbia studies for his final exams using the PQRST method.
One method used to focus on key information when studying from books is the PQRST method.[9] This method prioritizes the information in a way that relates directly to how they will be asked to use that information in an exam. PQRST is an acronym for Preview, Question, Read, Summary, Test.[10]
Preview: The student looks at the topic to be learned by glancing over the major headings or the points in the syllabus.
Question: The student formulates questions to be answered following a thorough examination of the topic(s).
Read: The student reads through the related material, focusing on the information that best relates to the questions formulated earlier.
Summary: The student summarizes the topic, bringing his or her own understanding into the process. This may include written notes, spider diagrams, flow diagrams, labeled diagrams, mnemonics, or even voice recordings.
Test: The student answers the questions drafted earlier, avoiding adding any questions that might distract or change the subject.
There are a variety of studies from different colleges nation-wide that show peer-communication can help increase better study habits tremendously. One study shows that an average of 73% score increase was recorded...

...that will cause the block to slide at constant speed. The forces acting on the block are (see Figure 8). The set up for this part is in Figure 6By summing up forces along x and y axes (refer to figure 9), and equating the forces to zero, the theoretical value of Wp is:
ΣFx=0
Wp=f+Wbsinθ;f=μN(Equation 4)
ΣFx=0
N= Wbcosθ (Equation 5)
Therefore,
Wp=μWhcosθ+Wbsinθ (Equation 6)

The coefficient of friction which is defines as f/n has no relationship with the area of contact. Therefore no matter how big or small the area of contact is, it cannot affect the coefficient of friction. Although a larger area of contact between two surfaces would create a larger source of frictional forces, it also reduces the pressure between the two surfaces for a given force holding them together. Since pressure equals force divided by the area of contact, it works out that the increase in friction generating area is exactly offset by the reduction in pressure.
In the experiment, it was proven and tested that area of contact does not affect the coefficient of friction. Based on data, area doesn’t affect much the value of the coefficient of friction since the values just differ in minimal aspects

The case between Beauty and Stylish involves concept of a valid contract, pre-contractual statements, express term and misrepresentation.
A valid contract is established between Beauty and Stylish when an offer is accepted and there is intention for both parties to create legal relations. An offer refers to the expression of willingness of the offerer to be contractually bound by an agreement if his or her offer is properly accepted. It has to be clear and certain in terms. It must also be communicated to the offeree before it is being accepted. In addition, the acceptance has to be unqualified, unconditional and made by a positive act. In the case of Beauty and Stylish, a positive act refers to the signing of the contract. All terms of the offer must be accepted without any changes and cannot be subjected to any condition, taking effect only upon fulfillment of that condition. When Beauty and Stylish enter into the agreement, they must intend to bind and bound legally to each other by their agreement. This is the intention to create legal relations between two parties. In the meanwhile, this contract must possess consideration. A contract must therefore be a two-sided affair, with each side providing or promising to provide something of value in exchange for what the other is to provide.
Every contract, whether oral or written, contain terms. The terms of a contract set out the rights and duties of the parties. Terms are the promises and undertakings given by each...

...Maths" and "Math" redirect here. For other uses see Mathematics (disambiguation) and Math (disambiguation).
Euclid, Greek mathematician, 3rd century BC, as imagined by Raphael in this detail from The School of Athens.[1]Mathematics is the abstract study of quantity (numbers),[2] structure,[3] space,[2] change,[4][5] and any topic which has quantities and therefore can be studied quantitatively.[6] It has no generally accepted definition.[7][8]
Mathematicians seek out patterns[9][10] and formulate new conjectures. Mathematicians resolve the truth or falsity of conjectures by mathematical proof. When mathematical structures are good models of real phenomena, then mathematical reasoning can provide insight or predictions about nature. Through the use of abstraction and logic, mathematics developed from counting, calculation, measurement, and the systematic study of the shapes and motions of physical objects. Practical mathematics has been a human activity for as far back as written records exist. The research required to solve mathematical problems can take years or even centuries of sustained inquiry.
Rigorous arguments first appeared in Greek mathematics, most notably in Euclid's Elements. Since the pioneering work of Giuseppe Peano (1858–1932), David Hilbert (1862–1943), and others on axiomatic systems in the late 19th century, it has become customary to view mathematical research as...

...Chapter 11
Four Decades of the Defence of
Australia: Reflections on Australian
Defence Policy over the Past 40 Years
Hugh White
The serious academic study of Australian defence policy can be said to have
begun with the publication of a book by the SDSC’s founder, Tom Millar, in
1965. The dust jacket of that book, Australia’s Defence, posed the following
question: ‘Can Australia Defend Itself?’ Millar thus placed the defence of Australia
at the centre of his (and the SDSC’s) work from the outset. Much of the SDSC’s
effort over the intervening 40 years, and I would venture to say most of what
has been of value in that effort, has been directed toward questions about the
defence of the continent. This has also been the case for most of the work by
Australian defence policymakers over the same period. In this chapter I want
to reflect on that work by exploring how the idea of the ‘defence of Australia’
has evolved over that time, and especially how its role in policy has changed,
from the mid-1960s up to and including the most recent comprehensive statement
of defence policy, Defence 2000: Our Future Defence Force.
This is no dry academic question. The key question for Australian defence
policy today is how we balance priority for the defence of Australia against
priority for the defence of wider strategic interests. The starting point for that
debate is the policies of the 1970s and 1980s, which...
