Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Worked with the student on understanding SSS, SAS, AAS, and ASA. Also went ahead in the book and worked with CPCTC. She now has a very good understanding and even understands the extra credit problems."
"We covered angle relationships and the consequences of angle measures when a line crossed two parallel lines. We also covered the different theorems required to justify geometric proofs."
"We reviewed test 2 materials using two study guides. The material covered transformations, angle proofs, and theorems."
"The student and I continued with the material on circles. The main concept in this chapter seemed to be that the angle subtending an arc is half the arc measure. There were lots of translations between arcs and angles that he seemed to understand pretty well. We used the remaining time to review concepts he is likely to see on his upcoming midterm. Specifically, we reviewed the law of sines and cosines, as it has been awhile since he looked at/used that. We briefly touched on the remaining material in between."
"The student and I focused on algebraic practices in geometry and triangle congruence. We discussed the different avenues one can use to ascertain more information about similar or congruent triangle, examining their sides and angles. We also reviewed trig functions and their relationship to the triangle and the unit circle."
"The student told me he is going to have a test on this Tuesday. The purpose of this session was to review his material. It included equation of a circle with center (h, k), and equation of parabolas that use the focal distance as a parameter. We went through the 4 possibilities for those equations and we studied parabolas with vertex (h, k). We solved all the problems he had in his material. He told me he better understood everything and he is more confident solving this kind of problems. Overall the wins from this session is that he had a better understanding of how to write equations of a parabolas given the focal distance and conversely given the equation of a parabola he can find a focal distance, and he is ready for the test on Tuesday."
