We then went through a worksheet that covered solving trigonometric equations. The general strategy used was to isolate the present trig function on one side and then use the corresponding inverse trig function to find the angle solutions. We discussed how to report angle solutions in a general form which would include all angles (an infinite amount) that would satisfy the equations. The simpler equations just required basic algebra while the more complex ones required some factoring. I highlighted the fact that caution should be taken when a quadratic is present because losing solutions is very easy if not careful. The hardest equation required the use of trigonometric identities to turn all the present trig functions into a common one. She did really well in understanding the topics."
We went over what parametric equations are and some real applications of them, so the student could have a better understanding of this concept.
The student seemed to be confused with the concept overall, but mostly connecting it to other mathematical concepts that are crucial to solve these problems.
She has been assigned to convert parametric equations into rectangular form. We focused the session on understanding the goal of these problems and devising a general strategy to approach them. The student responded well to this. It seemed to be that she has a much better understanding of the concept AND what steps she needs to take to solve these problems.
We also talked about how to efficiently manipulate expressions. We focused on an example that required some creative use of trigonometric identities. The student hadn't previously realized that using trigonometric identities was the most efficient way (and probably the only way) to solve such problems. Once she realized this and we identified what she should be looking for to simplify the mathematical expressions, the student seemed much more confident in tackling her assignments. Throughout the session we discussed some problem solving strategies as well.
Overall, the student responded very well to the session. She followed well and asked questions when something was unclear. By the end of the session she said she understood much better and we agreed on her working on her homework applying the strategies she learned. We will discuss any problems she is struggling with in tomorrow's session. We will also set up a regular schedule."
