Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We began by going over the homework assigned to the student. I helped him to see why a strange solution to one assignment (8-ball program) improperly used while loops. We restructured this, however, to meet the original specification using arrays. We then looked at his drawing assignment, showing him how to work through several alterations to the multi-toned color assigned for it. He did do some extra work for the assignment as well (adding a quasi-perspectival / 3D drawing of a prism). Following this, we worked on file input, rewriting part of the 8-ball program based on this. To help him understand file input a bit better, we did a program that averaged scores and likewise one that read in a file of student information with scores. Finally, we touched up program that he attempted on his own, tracing a sin-wave animation."
"Today, the student did coding practice, by going back to the labs, and attempting to code them on his own."
"We reviewed the student's current assignment on programs. It was somewhat of a review session, somewhat an exploration of pointers."
