Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We began the session with a basic, comprehensive math review. This included going over exponents and exponent rules, negative numbers, and dividing by fractions. We also reviewed scientific notation. I went over the physics packet I created for this session. It contains info on unit prefixes, physical constants, MKS to British unit conversions, and four energy formulas. We then worked through some conservation of energy problems. This both familiarized her with the energy equations and with the solution processes and got us started on some actual physics. Finally, we figured out how high the nutritional energy contained in a chocolate bar could launch a 100kg person."
"We covered work and energy. We went over the work energy theorem, conserved and non-conserved forces, potential energy, work, and how work relates to force."
"We worked on homework to study for a test including equilibrium problems, fluids, and angular acceleration/torque/angular momentum problems."
