    one on one help needed

    I know the rules said no math help here, but technically I'm not asking for specific help, so I figure that's close enough. Right?

    Okay, here's the deal. Two weeks ago I started my first class in a graduate applied math program. I graduated with a BA in math in 1999...so yeah, it's been a while. I've been teaching undergraduate courses for over ten years now and I can say with a high level of confidence that when it comes to algebra I rock. Calculus, on the other hand, has left my brain completely. I can vaguely remember at one point in time being able to perform calculus equations efficiently. I did pass with an A in all 3 courses. It was just a long time ago.

    Anyway, the course I'm taking is advanced geometric methods to solving mechanical systems. I have discovered that there is no geometry involved in this course, and despite the instructor's insistence that we'll work with differential equations next quarter, everything we have worked on has been differential equations and calculus. Diffy Q I'm okay with, but I'm struggling with the calculus.

    So is there anyone out there that would be willing to help me out one-on-one? I don't want anyone to give me the answers, but maybe point me in the right direction, tell me what formulas I should be using, review my work before I turn it in? I really need to pass this class!

    Thanks!
