Up-cycling 
COUNTS!

Upcycling glass can save up to 30% energy compared to making new glass, and reusing tin cans conserves 95% of the energy required for producing new ones.  In Up-Cycling Counts, we will transform tin cans and jars into useful and artistic items. Through hands-on activities and mathematical insights, Chool Bus will showcase how up-cycling these materials can reduce waste and energy consumption.  

Join us at Up-Cycling Counts, where math, creativity, and environmental consciousness converge to make a sustainable impact!

My name is Kaden Akins and I am a senior at Cedar Hill High School.

I am going to major in mechanical engineering with plans to work in the automotive industry. I enjoy photography and all things automated. I am a follower of Christ and a member at OCBF. Ms Remi has helped me virtually during quarantine, but I have been meeting with Ms Remi weekly to prepare for college. She has helped me hone my skills in algebra and learn more about Calculus!

Engineering is a field that blends science, technology, and mathematics to solve real-world problems. The role of mathematics in engineering cannot be overstated—it is the foundation upon which many engineering principles are built. As such, aspiring engineers must develop a strong mathematical background. Universities typically require at least 64 credit hours of mathematics for engineering degrees, underscoring the importance of math in this field. Here, we explore key mathematical topics that students should master before embarking on their college journey in engineering.

1. Algebra

Algebra forms the basis of most engineering calculations. A strong grasp of algebraic manipulation, equations, inequalities, and functions is crucial. This includes understanding linear, quadratic, and polynomial equations, which are fundamental in analyzing and solving engineering problems. Algebraic skills enable students to formulate and solve equations that are vital in various engineering fields, from electrical circuits to material stress analysis.

2. Geometry

Geometry, especially Euclidean geometry, is essential for spatial reasoning and design, which are integral to engineering. Knowledge of concepts such as angles, shapes, volumes, and area calculations is crucial for fields like civil engineering, architecture, and mechanical engineering. Additionally, trigonometry, which ties into geometry, is indispensable for dealing with forces, waves, and electromagnetism, all of which require understanding the relationships between angles and sides in triangles.

3. Calculus

Calculus is perhaps the most critical area of mathematics for engineers. It includes differential and integral calculus, which are used to model and solve problems involving changes. Calculus helps engineers determine rates of change, such as velocity and acceleration in mechanical systems, or current and voltage in electrical circuits. Integral calculus, on the other hand, is used for finding quantities like area under curves, volumes of solids of revolution, and total accumulated values, which are necessary for various engineering analyses.

4. Statistics and Probability

Engineers often deal with systems and processes that involve uncertainty and variability. Statistics and probability provide the tools to analyze data, make predictions, and test hypotheses. Understanding concepts like mean, median, mode, standard deviation, and probability distributions is vital for quality control, risk assessment, and decision-making in engineering.

5. Pre-calculus

Before diving into calculus, students should be proficient in pre-calculus. This subject covers a broad range of topics that prepare students for calculus, including functions, complex numbers, exponential and logarithmic functions, sequences, and series. Mastery in these areas ensures that students are well-prepared for the advanced topics they will encounter in their engineering courses.

 

Mathematics is the language of engineering. Aspiring engineers should strive to build a robust foundation in these essential mathematical disciplines before starting their college education. Resources such as Khan Academy offer comprehensive courses in these areas, including an excellent primer on prerequisites for calculus (accessible here), which is critical for anyone planning to pursue engineering. By adequately preparing in these key subjects, students can significantly enhance their understanding and application of engineering concepts, leading to success in their academic and professional careers.

Notes.

In the age-old battle between trusting our memory and taking notes, which side comes out on top? Let's dive in and uncover the truth behind this age-old debate, especially when it comes to acing those challenging STEM studies and post-secondary tests.

Sure, relying solely on memory might seem like the easy way out. After all, who wants to spend extra time jotting down notes when you could be mentally storing all that juicy information, right? But here's the thing: research shows that note-taking isn't just about scribbling down words – it's a powerful tool for boosting memory and improving academic performance.

According to a study published in Psychological Science in the Public Interest, students who  actively take notes during lectures perform significantly better on tests compared to those who rely solely on memory. It's like giving your brain a workout, reinforcing those neural pathways and making it easier to recall information when it counts the most.

But why does note-taking have such a profound impact on memory? Well, for starters, it forces us to engage with the material on a deeper level. Instead of passively listening, we're actively processing and summarizing information, which helps solidify it in our minds. Plus, having a well-organized notebook serves as a valuable resource for future reference, especially for subjects like STEM studies which often build upon foundational concepts over time.

So, what's the bottom line here? When it comes to mastering STEM studies and acing those post-secondary tests, don't underestimate the power of note-taking. It's not just about passing exams – it's about equipping yourself with the tools you need to succeed in the long run. So grab that pen and paper, and start jotting down those notes. Your future self will thank you for it!

Hi, my name is Maddison T.  This is my sophomore year of high school, I'm a varsity Color Guard cadet and our squad recently took home first place in our southwest regional competition.

Recently I stuggled with graphing rational functions in my Advance Algebra 2 class. Ms. Remi helped me understand  how to calculate key points of a graph to sketch and I earned a 94 on my quiz!  She's a great math tutor because she uses a variety of ways to teach me.

Thanks Ms. Remi!
