The sentences presented here contain words that are spelled identically, but have different pronunciations and meanings (these kinds of words are called homographs). This leads to potentially ambiguous reading of the sentences! However, most readers of English are extremely adept at reading the sentences, probably due to the context in which the words are used.

Your job is to read each sentence aloud and determine whether any errors (stuttering or pausing are errors) occur. Be sure to keep track of how many times you make a mistake.

February is upon us.
 
Gone are the freshly printed syllabi and daydreams of perfect scores. It's February, and that exciting back-to-school feeling has probably worn away.

Not to say that school isn't still exciting. I'm sure that for some of you, the daily routine of tasks and tests is just lovely. But I'd venture to say that many of you — most of you — have had to deal with the most dreaded assignment of all, a sure sign that fun and games are over: the group project.

Teachers assign group projects for a number of reasons. For one, it's less assignments that they have to grade, an important consideration when class sizes at large universities are in the triple digits.

But the motivation to assign group projects cannot be purely selfish on th [ ... ]

So, you’re at the exam, you’ve been staring at the question for 10 minutes, and the clock is ticking...

How do you know which integration technique to use for a particular question?



If you're enrolled in a calculus II class, you've probably encountered the following techniques:

 Basic Substitution Method

 Integration by Parts

 Powers of Trigonometric Functions

 Trigonometric Substitution

 Partial Fractions

In this blog, we'll explore each of these techniques in greater detail, and consider some examples where the technique applies.

To start, nearly every integrand you come across can be simplified to look like one of these forms:


Most teachers will be kind enough to provide these formulas on a test, either in the form of a derivative or an integ [ ... ]

College panel recommends placing less importance on SAT and ACT scores

Some people enjoy standardized tests. The lack of open-ended responses. The comfort that there is only one correct answer. The cute little corresponding bubbles.

I'm not one of those people. Give me an essay, or even a fill-in-the-blank test, and I'm as cool as a cucumber. But give me a multiple-choice, standardized test and I'm as rotten as a mushroom (no offense to the fungus lovers, but I'm not one of those people, either.)

Luckily for people like me, a shift away from standardized tests has already begun, at least in the realm of some college admissions offices. In fact, colleges are now placing less emphasis on standardized testing and more emphasis on high school achi [ ... ]

Taking a physics exam without first practicing problem solving is like pinch-hitting in a crucial game without having taken batting practice.

Preparing for an exam in physics has two parts. You must make sure that you know how to work problems given a list of formulae, and you must ensure that you can reproduce the formulae. These tasks are rather separate.

The first step in ensuring that you can work problems is to keep up with the assignments as they are due. There is simply too much to learn to postpone this work to the last minute. As you go along you should make sure that you have mastered each type of problem. You should review assigned problems that you got wrong and get help with those where you do not understand what you did wrong. Y [ ... ]
