Step-by-Step Tutor Helps Students Break Down Calculus Problems into Manageable Pieces

Calculus is a beautifully intricate subject. Sometimes, though, when it gets a little too intricate, students struggle with how to begin solving a complicated problem. That’s where the student-favorite tool, Step-by-Step, helps out.

Step-by-Step breaks down each question into manageable steps for students to solve. The system shows students how to get started and guides them in the right direction as they actively work toward the solution. The courseware lets students know if they’ve gotten the step correctly or need to try again.

At any point, students can choose to review a Learn screen that provides more background information on the concept they’re practicing, to display the current step’s answer in order to move on to the next, or to show the solution to the problem with the chance to try a similar question.

This extra practice comes in handy before students enter the Certify portion of the learning module, which asks students to demonstrate their mastery of concepts learned without access to tutoring aids.

Step-by-Step provides students with the type of lesson breakdown you’d give during class. After all, students don’t want to feel like they can’t even begin a question if it’s too complicated to solve, especially if they are practicing on their own. This tool allows them to get more familiar with the material and engage with each multi-step question on an in-depth level, helping them become more comfortable in their knowledge and skill.
