In my first quarter at Auburn, and throughout my freshman year, several subjects I was required to take proved to be quite difficult for me because I came from a school system that allowed me to essentially memorize answers instead of teaching me how to study and truly learn the material.
Auburn also exposed me to large classrooms for the first time, where one- on-one instruction during class was virtually impossible. As a result, my weaknesses in the classroom became all too obvious in the pre-engineering preparatory courses like chemistry, calculus, physics, etc.
I will never forget struggling mightily in studying for my first calculus and chemistry tests both in the same week early in my first quarterand getting my test papers back with scores of 62 and 65, respectively.
I had a sinking feeling in my gut that I would flunk out of college by the end of my freshman year and perhaps sooner, and suddenly the college scene was no longer fun. Out of desperation, for the next week or so I went to see my professors for each of my problem subjects after each classand while they were helpful as to specific questions I had, my lack of a sufficient academic background continued to plague me and destroy what little confidence I had remaining.
Finally probably to get me off his backone of my professors suggested that I sign up for the tutorial program that was available to pre-engineering students. I was directed to the west end of Ramsay Hall on the first floor to sign up for a tutor in each problem subject, and I initially signed up for one hour of tutoring by a graduate student or upperclassman for each hour of class.
Much to my relief the program was funded by an annual donation from an Auburn University graduate and therefore it was free to kids like me who were going through school on a shoestring and a prayer. The one-on-one instruction I received during these sessions allowed me to learn how to think like a problem solver, how to reason through the solutions to a problem, how to study the available material efficiently, and essentially gave me confidence in myself again through the immediate feedback that I could get from the tutor.
While it continued to be a struggle for me through the first two quarters at Auburn, I no longer needed the tutors by the end of the second quarter, and I ended up with a GPA of 3.
Ultimately I graduated with high honors with an overall GPA of 3.
Since graduating from Auburn, I worked four years with Exxon Company, USA in New Orleans, and then for seven years with a small independent oil company where I became the executive vice president and chief operating officer.
I reside today in Tulsa, Okla.
I currently serve on nine different company or charitable boards, and my wife Becky and I have four kids three of whom have degrees from Auburn.
I would likely have changed to a different major and perhaps even gone to a smaller college or dropped out altogether. There is no doubt Auburn changed my life forever, and therefore the tutorial program that saved me allowed me to become the person I am today, and to experience the success I have been fortunate enough to enjoy.Engineering Mathematics is the best-selling introductory mathematics text for students on science and engineering degree and pre-degree courses.
Sales of previous editions stand at more than half a million copies. It is suitable for classroom use and self-study. Its unique programmed approach takes students through the mathematics they need in a step-by-step fashion with a wealth of examples.
