"We did more word problems and practiced setting them up. He is getting better at this. We worked on mixtures and rate/distance type problems."
"Reviewed Chapter 6 & 7 - Word Problems including Ratios, Proportions, and Mixtures. Completed Homework. Prepared for Quiz."
"The student and I went over the basic concepts of algebra and practiced applying them to different types of problems. She did extremely well applying the processes to problems she wasn't familiar with."
"The student and I reviewed the concepts for linear equations in preparation for her exam, we covered finding slope using the formula and identifying the slope on the graph/from equations. We also worked on point slope formula and converting to slope intercept form."
"We went over the student's homework and practiced solving systems of equations. In doing this, we also covered applications of solving systems of equations, such as figuring out distances two people would run in a race at different speeds and at what point they would be at the same distance. We also discussed her future projects and made sure the essential concepts were understood."
"We went over exponential functions and quadratic functions. At the beginning, we briefly overviewed linear functions. The student has good focus (a great plus) and quick comprehension skills. Her primary challenge seems to be minor mistakes. She was very goal oriented with the session and wished to master the concepts that she already understood on a basic level. I encouraged her to do practice problems for mastery. I sent her a website with practice problems. I was very happy that she had prepared for the session, maintained focus beautifully, and had a goal for what she wanted from the session."
