Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We reviewed material that will be on the student's computer-based quiz that is due Sunday night, especially estimated changes for costs of products and services using the consumer price index. We also discussed calculating percent increase and percent decrease using a couple of practical examples. I encouraged her to continue to try to find a study partner, and develop flashcards for memorization of key definitions, formulas, and examples."
"We continued to work on standard deviation calculations. We also looked at how degrees of freedom conceptually relates to lack of bias. We ran through many examples calculating both biased and unbiased statistics."
"In this session we covered probability distributions, expected values, and the law of large numbers. Then we discussed the counting principle, and permutations and combinations. We finished the session with an in depth look at the binomial distribution. The student was eager to learn this material as her class is very slow paced. Throughout the session she worked on problems, and will review the end of chapter summary material and problems on her own."
"Today we reviewed old homework problems on probability and discussed a few of the practice problems the student had on his practice exam regarding the same topic. Tomorrow we will go over chapters 5 and 6 in the same fashion."
"The student wanted to review some of his homework assignments, so I clarified some concepts for him and then he did well on his homework questions. I explained how to find the coefficient of variation, relative frequencies, and other measures. He really seemed to understand everything we went over."
"We reviewed the student's homework questions on confidence intervals. She did well, particularly with the questions that allowed for the use of a calculator. I sent her a flowchart for chapter 8 summarizing the different concepts we talked about and when to use which interval."
