"For today's session, we focused mainly on the student's algebra 2 material. His class is covering sequences and series, which we touched on during our last session. We had yet to go over series together, so this is where we started today's tutorial. I had him point out the relationship between a series and a sequence, which he understood well, as well as show me how to use series notation. He knew how to write an equation for a series using sigma notation, and he understood what the numbers above and below referred to. We did some practice problems to see where he was in his understanding. I asked him to write out a series given a sequence, and to write out the terms of a series given the sigma notation. He was very good at this, and he went through his homework with no questions whatsoever. Because he understood this material so well, we moved on to his chemistry assignment. In his chemistry class, he is currently going over gas laws. As we went through the assignment, I asked him as many conceptual questions as I could about the relationship between pressure, volume, and temperature, since the rest of this section is just math problems, which I know he can do. He knew all the equations and was even focused on using the proper units so that he would get the correct answers. He finished his assignment in good time, and we went back to his algebra material to move ahead of the class. I showed him Pascal's triangle and how to use it for binomial expansion. I also taught him how to find the series of a specific term for both geometric and arithmetic series. When he learns these concepts in class, he will already have a background on how to do these types of problems, which will help him reinforce what he has learned during our session."
