It may sound unreal, but such fairytale countries where kids spend only a couple of hours per week on homework exist. They had gone through a long way of trial and errors before realized all pros and cons of homework and introduced innovative changes into their system of education. However, why does the necessity of homework remain a topic for a debate, where the opposite side stands for giving as many home assignments to students as possible? It, therefore, sparks a question whether homework is actually harmful or helpful. Read the rest of this entry »

## Circuit Analysis using the Node Voltage Method

In this article, we will tell you about one more method of circuit analysis, which is called the Node Voltage Method. It also allows to reduce the calculations and save the time when we do the circuit analysis. Let’s firstly consider the T-circuit scheme from our previous post and solve it with the help of the Node Voltage Method. Read the rest of this entry »

## How to Memorize English Words

Is that possible to learn the language completely? Just any language, native or foreign in, say, 10, 25, 70 years? No. And to master English, it is of major importance to always refresh language structures, update your idiomatic base, modernize grammar, immerse into English speaking environment and add new lexical units to your word stock. Here we’re going to speak about the latter and, believe, it doesn’t come as a problem when you know some useful tips. Read the rest of this entry »

## Common Errors in Calculus Exercises

Practical exercises make an important part of a math course, which helps to deeper understand all theoretical information and further study more complex math sections. Quite often students do not even realize that they make mistakes and why that happens. In this article, we will analyze the most common student’s problems met while solving calculus homework.

## Mesh Current Method and Its Application

Previously, we’ve already introduced the Kirchhoff’s Circuit Law as a separate topic. And today, we shall consider another method for the circuit analysis, which is called the Mesh Current Method. The advantage of this method is that we obtain less unknown variables and equations when we solve the circuit. Let’s consider the T-circuit scheme from the mentioned post and solve it with the help of the Mesh Current Method. Read the rest of this entry »
