Hello Dr. Nancy Fung,

I hope you are very well.

I am a student who is extremely weak in math. In order to be very strong in math, specially for engineering field, could you provide me with sequential order of mathematical topics and textbooks. With what should I begin so that I can master big topics like calculus, statistics, probability ... etc.

Your guidance is precious to me.

Thank you so much.

That kind of explained something . . . the bad part of the video was when she kept doing examples, I was like, I know this already! all the time, she should have explained something else too.

The babysitting word problem is worded so that you don't actually state that the friend gets paid by the hour that's just an assumption. If you read what you wrote its not stating that at all its actually stating this: ($6.5*5)+$5.25
