Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
Yesterday we covered fractions and ratios. She had a few worksheets and practically flew through the first three which dealt with dividing fractions by whole numbers and ratio recognition. One thing I picked up right away is that she can visualize and calculate solutions in her head, a talent that many students do not have.
Her pace slowed down with the worksheets that covered the comparison of two fractions(i.e. 3/4 and 6/8) , or two ratios (i.e. 3:4 and 6:8) , or a fraction to a ratio (i.e. 3/4 and 6:8). The questions first provided 3 numbers and 1 unknown number which she had to calculate. She did well on these problems also.
I noticed when it came to calculating bigger numbers, she would be initially calculating in her head. For those few problems, I would have her write it out on paper to help her when she was stuck. As we broke these problems down, she understood where she went wrong and was able to make corrections.
The student is good at math, but second-guesses herself. To work on that, as she would answer the questions or look to me for approval, I would ask her, "Is that your final answer?" like in the game show. At first she hesitated, and then would review the problem before confirming her final answer. As we progressed, she became more confident in her answers, showing that she knew what she was doing.
We will, moving forward, work on her being confident in her skills. I also want to make sure in the future sessions that she knows how to review her answers to catch the calculation errors. Yesterday I pointed out to her how to anticipate solutions. For example, an odd number multiplied by an odd number will always be odd, and even multiplied by an even is even, and an odd multiplied by an even is always even. The same rules apply to division. This knowledge can help her recognize a possible answer so as not to make a mistake like 7*8=49, because the solution must be even.
She seemed receptive to the information. Looking forward to seeing her progress next week."
