Alice in Numberland
Dr. Auld is an experienced mathematics teacher and lecturer, specializing in STEP (Oxbridge entrance) paper tuition. She runs classes in STEP and also teaches the MAT exam, Probability and Statistics, and Degree level maths, inspiring students to solve challenging maths problems and offering help with exam technique, and also Interview help. She has top exam results to date, and references and case studies are available on request.
Private STEP and degree level Tuition available in London and online.
Dr Auld's teaching methods for STEP are based on encouraging students to work through problems both with her and alone, and to analyze the thought processes involved in solving them.
Central London is convenient for most people,
and students often travel across England for this tuition.
Dr Auld also tutors students online using (video) SKYPE and Messenger, including STEP students from Malaysia, Dubai, Switzerland and The U.S.A.
Please note that STEP maths is different from school maths. If you cannot already answer STEP questions, the lectures and courses may be too difficult for you to follow. If you are unsure, please request some material from me to look at or book a private session.
Algebra and Number theory Lecture (2.5 hours), plus 2 hour follow-up class
at David Game College in Aldgate, www.davidgamecollege.com (close to Aldgate tube, in the City of London)
Saturday 27th January 2018, from 14:00 - 17:00.
plus a follow-up class on Sunday 28th January 2018, from 14.00 - 16.00.
The Lecture will include:
the importance of prime numbers in building up the set of Natural
numbers, from Euclid's Unique Prime Factorisation,
some Proof by contradiction, including Euclid's proof of an Infinity of
Primes, as well as 'Square root (2) is irrational', and what is really making
this proof work, and hence how it can be extended to other algebraic
irrationals, which also leads to important Number theory techniques that
are tested in STEP and a lot at Interview.
The lecture will also cover some theory of Polynomials, including a thorough analysis of
cubic curves and multiple roots, underlying 'Function' theory,
including understanding how applying many-to-one functions can affect
equations and inequalities, plus related understanding and techniques,
that are somewhat hidden but all over STEP mathematics.
