8 AnswersHigher Education (University +)4 months ago### Why are college students taught by graduate students in 4-year public universities?

Shouldn't 4-year universities hire professors who already obtained PhD's in their fields and those who have teaching experiences? Why do they allow graduate students to teach undergraduate students in a large room with sometimes more than 150+ students? Can undergraduate students learn like that? In such a crowded classroom? What if they sit in the back of the room and cannot clear hear/view the instructor? How come community college class sizes are much smaller compared to the class sizes of 4-year universities?

3 AnswersHigher Education (University +)5 months ago### What's the ultimate reason people desire to get into prestigious colleges/universities in the US?

I've seen many students who want to get into prestigious colleges/universities in the US and I wonder why. Do top schools like MIT, Harvard, Yale & Stanford have better professors and they teach better than other colleges/universities or what? What benefits do students get from those elite schools? Will employers choose people who graduated from elite colleges rather than regular state schools? What exactly is the difference? Do elite colleges/universities provide best higher education or all colleges/universities teach the same materials in the US? Why top elite colleges/universities are selective than other schools? Why other colleges/universities aren't that selective at all?

4 AnswersMathematics1 year ago### Find the integral?

Evaluate the integral 7/(w^2+3w+3) dw.

Here's my work:

I've completed the square and came with this:

integral of 7/[(w+3/2)^2+3/4] dw

where u=w+3/2 and du=dw.

After I substitute, I got

integral of 7/(u^2+3/4) du.

From here, I don't know what to do. I know that I'm supposed to do the inverse tangent, but I don't know how. Can anyone please tell me how to get to the correct answer from here? Please show your work. Thanks.
