    Can u please explain the method of cylindrical shells to me….I’m an extension 2 teacher teaching it for the first time and I’ve tried looking on line but haven’t found that perfect answer. Do I calculate the volume of each shell as a cylindrical shell or do I use the rectangular prism. There is so much out there sometimes it’s hard to filter through all the information. If you could point me to a good source that would be great.

      You’re in luck! I have actually just finished teaching through the volumes topic, and I’m in the process of editing the videos now – keep an idea on my volumes playlist and you’ll see the videos come up in the next few days.

    Hi Eddie,

    Your videos are great and a real help. T results are so cool 🙂 We don’t get taught them in the UK for some reason.

    Please could you help me with identities which involve different size angles. For example:

    Sin(2x) = Cot(x)

    How would I approach something like this using the t results?

    If you could make a video with a few worked examples that would be great.

    Yeah like how would you do something like

    cos(2x)/(cosx + sinx) = cosx – sinx

    cot(a+b) = cotacotb-1/cota+cotb

    How could I do these using t results?

    Umar said:

    sin3x + sinx = 2sin2xcosx

    How could I do this using t results?

    Hi Eddie
    I have a question regarding mechanics
    I’ve looked at a few different textbooks now and when taking into account air resistance some textbooks will use kv (if proportional to v) and some will multiply by m and assume this force is mkv…I’ve watched a few videos from different people on line and they all use mass multiplied by the acceleration due to air resistance….which one I’d it

    Terry lee uses kv so does Fitzpatrick while Cambridge uses mkv (am I over thinking this)

      This is a fantastic question and I addressed it just recently with my class. It’s a bit tricky to explain in text, so you can watch my take on things here:

      Hi there Matt, thanks for writing! Glad to hear you find the videos so helpful. I’m not a professional mathematician – I’m a professional high school teacher. 🙂

    Hi Eddie, I realised you don’t have a lot of complex numbers videos. If you end up doing them in class plss upload them. I’ve benefited sooo much from your videos and your explanations are actually taking my understanding from about 85% to 95-99% ish, (if that makes sense). Thx loads.

    Hey Eddie,

    Hope you’re having a great day!

    I’m doing an expert roundup on my site and I think many new Math teachers using education technology products in their classroom like me would love to know your answer to this question :

    If you could only use 3 Education technology tools/apps/sites for your teaching which 3 tools would you choose? e.g. WolframAlpha, KhanAcademy and Inside Mathematics.

    Thanks in advance!

    As soon as I’m done compiling the results, I would inform and link back to your blog.

    Thank you!

      Eddie Woo responded:
      May 31, 2015 at 3:12 pm

      Hi Ishan. The 3 tools I’d choose would have to be… Youtube (for obvious personal reasons), Desmos (nothing can beat it for graphing – it even does lines of best fit!) and Tweetdeck (for discovering/curating inspiring material and connecting with other educators). I know two of those aren’t education-specific, but they’re what I use to support learning (both mine and my students’)!

    Eddie. I just caught you on the ABC and I am delighted to know you are in the system making a difference. I am an old man now and have been watching our education standards slip dramatically from when I was a student. It has nothing to do with money. It has to do with direction and we have lost it in the last forty years.
    Your excitement and enthusiasm in infectious and I hope you can infect the nation. Good on you mate.

    Hi Eddie
    What a terrific explanation of databases and using sql, when I was at uni 50 years ago no one ever actually explained anything…… your students are very privileged to have your expertise and gifts to give them a great start in life.

    Hi Eddie, I’ve just came across an aritcle about your Maths videos and have actually watched some of them. You’re brilliant and you made understanding Maths so simple and logical. Thanks so much for sharing your knowledge and insights on Maths. I hope to be able to influence and get my kids “sucked in (as one of your students commented)” into Maths too. Please continue sharing your knowledge and influencing kids not just in Australia but around the world too. By the way, I’m a mother to two school going kids in the United Kingdom and I just love the way you explain fractions. BRILLIANT! Thanks again so much!

    i saw you on Australian Story last night and I hope many other (maths) teachers aspire to be like you. My son is only in year 4 primary school and he had a horror teacher all year and it really affected his learning and interest/improvement in maths. this has been really difficult as a parent because you hope to give your children every opportunity to shine and progress & a teacher is the interface for this. i cant help but feel that she (the teacher) really let him down. I will show my son your wootube and tell him your story and he will see that this is the way a teacher is supposed to be,

    Dear Mr Woo,
    I was advised to watch your story from Australian Story. I struggled daily with maths from a very young age. 12% was one particular test result! One teacher in high school stood me up in front of class and grilled me with questions he knew I could not answer. But then in Year 12, I was placed into the “failure maths class”, but I gained a teacher who walked in and announced that there were no failures in her class! I passed for the first time in final HSC exam. So I thank you from the bottom of my heart for being a teacher who cares and does not shame those who cannot grasp maths quite as quickly as others.
    On a final note, I wept as I watched you talk of your dear children, especially your young son whose has been diagnosed with eosonophilic oesophagitis. You see, my 12 year old son is the same. Eczema. Food allergies. Asthma. EO. Not an easy road for children. His life has also been impacted with severe learning issues. So I send you my best wishes for you and your family. Thank you for being such a wonderful teacher who brings joy to the classroom.

    Hi Eddie… After studying physics major for 5 years, I started to learn these basic maths again… You are just wonderful… Your videos really helped me to explain those which I knew beforehand but didn’t have a better explanation

    Man you are the BEST maths teacher in the world, despite me not being in your class directly and just by watching your videos I seem to get it wayyyy more than when I’m actually in my maths class; which is a testament to how good you are. Keep doing what you are doing and spread love to maths.

    Yours sincerely, Bishal Pradhan (1-08-2018)

    Hi Sir Woo.
    I’m a Student in the Philippines struggling to understand math… One day, I ran across your video in my Youtube feed. I was amused at first because I understood most of what you’re saying. I used to hate math when I was in Junior High School (Currently Year 12 now, Senior High) and I now regret my junior years that I hated math. I lacked the enthusiasm to know the world of math. I started to watch your videos a year ago too. And now that I have college entrance exams, I continue to expand my knowledge by watching your videos. Your videos truly help.

    I just started to embrace math last year and sparked my enthusiasm to know more because of you. Thanks you SIr Eddie. You truly changed my life towards the academic field.

    You are truly a remarkable teacher.

    Hi Eddie, My name is Raymond Lai. I am a former Physics Teacher teaching high school students. Eddie, from the depths of my heart to the depths of your heart, I would like to say, thank you, very much, to you, Eddie for making a tremendous difference to the lives of every person who is able to come across your videos and you in person. As a Physics Teacher, Mathematics is a part of physics. I believe all subjects are equal. Your magnificent videos and you lovely bubbly persona, and most importantly, the fact, that you are good, honest and caring person, helps to break down a persistent belief, that Mathematics is hard and as a result physics is too. High School students, stay away from hard subjects and mathematics and physics tend to be labelled the too hard category. Your videos, change all that. I hope you understand, that, you have made more of a difference, than you know. Here is Balmain your name is mentioned and programs are designed from your videos. Thank you, very much, Eddie. Please, keep in mind, today, that you have made a huge difference and when you have problems in the classroom, as we all do, no matter the experience, that you have made a huge difference to those who were too scared to do mathematics. To answer, the questions, what is the relevance of mathematics in our lives. It is not the content, Eddie, that we are necessarily teaching. It is the thinking behind it. Mathematics, creates, rational, logical, deductive reasoning and over seventy two and counting thinking skills. These thinking skills are transferable to areas of people’s lives, for example, driving, cooking, problem solving in relationships. The answer and one answer, is that it is the thinking that the students take with them when they finish their mathematics lessons. This thinking they will use in their everyday life and they will be unaware they are using the very thinking that is taught is mathematics. It is called invisible learning transferred to different contexts. Also, like in physics, mathematics is everywhere. It is in our bodies, in our rooms, in the trees, in the sky everywhere. I hope these physics responses help you, will students ask you what is the relevance of learning mathematics. Thank you, very much, for making a difference to my life and to the lives of people you may not meet in person. Your name was mentioned over fifty times by Primary School Students in Balmain. I work in Childcare. Have a lovely Eddie. Raymond.
