Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
We also work on problems from a recent math quiz in preparation for his math test tomorrow. We worked on completing the square and factoring. We also worked on adding and subtracting fractions and simplifying polynomial fractions. Again, the student often used the correct method to solve problems but made minor mistakes. I encouraged him to slow down, take his time, and be careful with negative signs and parenthesis."
SUMMARY: Looked over lab work and helped explain the teacher's free body diagrams and relationships of tension forces to the x and y components of the force of an object. Talked about the difference of stationary and kinetic friction forces."
