Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The assignment the student wanted to look at today had two equations that were used consistently. Equations: an = a1 + (n-1)d & Sn = (n/2)(a1 + an). Using given information in each problem either one or both of the equations was necessary to solve the problem. Once we reviewed the equations she was able to work out those problems just fine."
"I went over basic hypothesis testing with the student, discussing the p-value, type I and II error, along with the power of a test and how to compute them. He understood the material well, and I will be preparing typed notes for him from the material from today's session."
"We covered functions with exponents and graphing. Overall, the student is doing much better and earned an A on her last test. She seems more confident."
"The student is starting to really enjoy statistics as a subject! Today we went over and reviewed her lab assignment and some small detail questions on confidence level and intervals. We also started looking at hypothesis testing concepts and will continue that this upcoming week."
"The student and I went over continuously compounded exponential growth problems and the properties of logarithms and exponents. We first went over the 6 basic properties of logarithms and exponents as well as the relationship between the two functions. We then worked on solving problems involving manipulation of logarithms and exponents using these properties and walked through how to do each one. Most problems involved applying more than one property and seemed to help a good amount. We then did a review of continuously compounded interest and solved several problems involving it. I also gave examples of non-financial systems that could be modeled with the equation. Finally, we talked about the constant 'e' and where it showed up in the bigger picture."
"The student had a review for an upcoming test on hypothesis testing. She had notes that her teacher provided covering the steps she wanted done for each problem. We had problems for proportions as well as means. I also showed her how to check the answers to the math steps in her calculator. At the end of the session, we did a couple of problems involving types of errors that occur when making a conclusion on a hypothesis test."
