Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We went over problems involving radicals, expressions, and equations. The student knew how to approach the majority of the problems but forgot to check her results with some of the more complicated problems. We also went over simplifying radical expression of higher degree than two. She does a good job applying the power rules to simple problems but needs practice for the one that require more than one rule to simplify."
"We reviewed combinations and permutations to make sure that was mastered. We then went onto probability and focused on multiple event probability covering: overlapping, disjoint, independent, and dependent events. The student did well with the material."
"- The student and I prepared for his unit test tomorrow. - The unit covered rules of exponents, simplification of complex fractions, and graphing rational functions. - The student earned an A on his last quiz and a B+ on his last unit test."
"Went over regression analysis. The student already had an understanding of how to alter data to create new regressions, but forgot to use r to find the best fitting regression. After the reminder, he was able to breeze through all questions concerning that version of analysis. We then went over linear regression analysis and how to perform the proper tests and confidence intervals. I broke down the components to the formula that confused him (mostly the standard error). After the short review, he seemed to master all aspects of regression analysis. Takes a test on the material on Thursday."
"Completed 2 worksheets. One on evaluating x^2 equations, the other on labeling parabolas. With solving ax^2+bx+c type equations, one can directly take the square root, factor it, or use the quadratic formula. It's important to remember that after taking the square root, there are two solutions - +/-. Also, when working with radicals, the basic rules are that they can be split or combined, and when there's a radical in the denominator, it should be rationalized by multiplying top and bottom by the magic 1/1."
"We worked on math problems involving multiplying fractions, putting data in tables, and computing the mean, median, mode, and range."
