Phil B.

Private tutor in Central Point, OR

Education

Oregon State University, graduated with a BS in Math in 1967; Electrical Engineering was my minor. Guest speaker: https://www.speakermatch.com/profile/fortrancalculus/

Experience

Volunteer Tutor at "Hearts with a Mission" for 5 years; 2010 to 2016. Calculus & Differential Equations main math studies. Minored in Electrical Engineering. Worked for Memorex Corp. on optimizing their Read-Right thin-film-head for disc drive production. Worked at Lockheed Missiles & Space Co. trying to use spectral estimation algorithms to detect whether on coming satellite was a friend or foe. Last 28 years have been used to develop Apps for Engineers & Scientists; CurvFit, FC-Compiler, Match-n-freq, Robot4, & SpectrumSolvers. Visit my website at goal-driven.net for more. FC-Compiler app is a compiler that solves Algebra thru Differential Equations with little work. For those doing Math Modeling, Simulation, and/or Optimization.

Hobbies

I'm retired, last 28 years I have been writing a math textbook and creating several apps for Engineering & Science. My goal is to Train Educators on Modeling & Simulation’s & the next step is (Mathematical) Optimizations. Optimizations require an Objective (function). Today's Engineers & Scientists solve problems with a “Find X” mind-set. With some Operational Research training they could expand their thinking to a “Find X to Optimize Y” mind-set. Then they would be ready for Optimizations, Calculus-level programming and software. (This would drop today’s design times that require months even man years to one or two days! Manufacturing processes could be optimized to the days demand and thus maximize their profits.) “Find X to Optimize Y” thinking among professors will cause most Engineering & Science textbooks to be rewritten with optimization examples and discussions. This will be great stuff for industries and government; applied engineering and/or science not just theories. A little history, in 1974 Calculus programming was introduced at a Society of Industrial & Applied Mathematicians (SIAM) conference. Two professors heading the conference would -not- allow this paper to be printed since they realized what it would do to their (numerical methods) field of work. (Few, if any, professors are aware of what can be achieved thru Calculus Programming.) Help, we need Engineering & Science professors to teach the “Find X to Optimize Y” mind-set. Fine Woodworking is my hobby
