TECHNICAL RESOURCES

One of the best online teachers for all things math (calculus, linear algebra, differential equations, etc). He can easily take complex topics and break them down into simpler terms. I always watched his videos to help me out with math assignments during my time at in university. 

 

Paul's site has detailed, yet easy to understand, notes on Algebra, Calc 1, Calc 2, Calc 3, and differential equations.

 

Structure free is a Youtube channel run by a professor at the University of the Pacific. He’s also a licensed engineer with degrees in civil/structural engineering. A lot of his videos are on the topics of statics, civil, and structural engineering. Even in mechanical engineering I had a few courses on statics, and mechanics of materials so I found his channel very helpful.

 

Learn Chem E is another really useful engineering YouTube channel like Structure Free. Contrary to their YouTube channel name, many engineering disciplines besides chemical engineers will find their channel useful. They provide insightful videos on topics like thermodynamics, fluid dynamics, and heat transfer.

 

Wolfram Alpha is a really powerful online calculator. It can do integrals, even complex ones like double and triple integrals. It can also do differentiation of complex functions. It’s a useful tool for checking over some of your homework problems.

 

WORK RESOURCES

TalentEgg advertises themselves as a place to find internships, and entry level jobs. I’ve never actually applied for a job there. I usually go on that site to look at company interviews. For example, if you search up Shell, you can see tips from insiders or their HR on how to improve your chances of getting a job at that company. So, I usually visit TalentEgg before creating a resume and applying at a company in order to get some insight on that company. 

 

MISCELLANEOUS RESOURCES

A website where you can copy and paste your writing and get your grammar checked. This will be really useful for report writing and any writing classes you may take in post-secondary. It’s also good for checking the grammar in your cover letters when you go to apply for jobs.

 

Hemingway Editor is another writing tool. You can copy and paste your work, and Hemingway Editor will give you an idea of how easy or hard it is to read. Its main goal is to keep your writing concise and simple.
