Registration and subscriptions / Minimum response times
« Last post by admin on 13 September, 2018, 12:00:06 pm »
So we can give each and every one of our students the support and guidance they deserve understandably we sadly need to put a limit on the amount of time we spend dealing with your maths and physics-related questions. Therefore, within a single twenty-four hour period, Your Maths Tutor aims to respond to at least one maths or physics-related topic per user up to and including Advanced Higher/A Level standard (beyond Advanced Higher/A Level we can't promise). If you think you need more support than this then please contact us to find out more about our in-person and virtual tutoring services.

Please contact us to learn more!

« Last post by admin on 13 July, 2018, 05:05:00 pm »
Hi all,

We've just posted the latest Maths Challenge on our Your Maths Tutor Facebook page: this week it's a Prime Number Maths Challenge. Part of the challenge is how you can prove that a number is prime. Perhaps you have an idea? Or maybe you're not sure and would like a little guidance. If you're not sure then register on this forum here and we can all work on it together.

Do you follow us on Facebook? If not then please do pop over to the YourMathsTutor Facebook page and follow us. The more of us there are then the more we can help each other.

Take care,

Ian.

General Chit Chat / Say "Hello" and Introduce Yourself
« Last post by admin on 30 June, 2018, 01:22:27 pm »
Hi there and thanks for visiting this forum :)

This is the general chit-chat board, where you can talk about anything you like. Mainly, we'd love you to say "hi" and tell us a little bit more about yourself. Oh and don't worry because we're not going to collect data on what food you like or try to use some clever profiling to determine how we think you're going to vote. Remember: what gets said in the Community Hub stays in the community hub :D

Thanks again and we hope you like it here,

Ian

General Chit Chat / How do I write maths notation in a post?
« Last post by admin on 23 June, 2018, 10:06:03 pm »
We've had a good think about the best ways of inputting maths and science notation - which using a laptop or mobile phone keyboard is not a straightforward ask. There are currently three ways of writing maths notation directly in a post...

The first method is to use \( \LaTeX \). This is a special typesetting language that's easy to learn (see the Learn \( \LaTeX \) in 30 minutes guide for details).

For example, say I want to write the fraction a half like this:
\[ \frac{1}{2} \]
... so that it actually looks like a fraction. To achieve this then in \( \LaTeX \) I would write the following code:
Code: [Select]
\frac{1}{2}.

In order to tell the forum that this is \( \LaTeX \) we need to surround the code with special tags like this:
Code: [Select]
[latex]...[/latex]
So, the following:

Code: [Select]
[latex]\frac{1}{2}[/latex]
... is rendered as:

\[ \frac{1}{2} \]

If you want the notation to appear in a line of text (like this: \( y=mx+c \) then use the 'inline' flag like this:

Code: [Select]
[latex=inline]y=mx+c[/latex]
The second method is to use the built-in \( \LaTeX \) editor based on fMath - see the button with the '\( \pi \) and pencil' icon in the text editor when you write your post. I'm in the process of writing a blog post on this feature so there'll be more information on this soon!

The third method is to write out your question, take a photo and then attach it to a post using the Attachments and other options settings underneath the text editor. This is the easiest option but watch out for the file size limit.

As ever, if you have any questions then please ask!

About the Members Only Boards / Where do I post my question?
« Last post by admin on 23 June, 2018, 02:59:18 pm »
This is a UK-based forum - specifically Scotland - so once you've joined you'll find boards listed under the Scottish (SQA) National 4/5/Higher and Advanced Higher categories. But there is a "Maths and Physics SOS!" category, too, where you can post any general problems. If you're not sure where to post the please do feel free to ask. If we think you might have posted to the wrong place then we'll let you know and move it for you.

Welcome :) !

Because not everyone wants (or indeed can afford ) to pay for ongoing maths and science tuition, we have created this low cost subscription forum to help you with any maths or physics-related problem you might have. Why a forum? Because we believe that the best way to learn is together as part of a supportive community. To that end if you're reading this post as a guest then please join the forum by registering here. If you're already registered then please subscribe and say "hi!" on the General Chit Chat board and tell us a little bit about yourself.

Ultimately we would like to provide this service for free but we are starting with a subscription model so that, hopefully, ongoing server and maintenance costs will eventually be covered.

Thanks for calling by and please do spread the word!

YourMathsTutor ;D
