Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
Today we focused on plant anatomy and physiology, specifically focusing on nutrient transport. We looked at the xylem, phloem, and actual physiological mechanisms (water adhesion, cohesion, tension) for movement of water and nutrients.
We studied for the student's test tomorrow. The concepts we really worked on were using trig identities, ellipse equation writing, and clock problems. For ellipses and clock problems we came up with clearer strategies so that she can quickly get through those questions on the test.
We were going to do order of operations, but after a review of addition, I noticed the student having difficulty with place value. He expressed that it wasn't his favorite, but he was willing to work on it. We did a few problems and he began to become more confident with each answer. It was a great feeling to see him become just as excited as me when he got the correct answer. It was a great session! As requested by his mom, I left some work for him to do. When we meet Sunday, he should be a pro at place value!
This was the first session with the student in her new class on mathematical modeling. We covered matrix equations, which is going to be a key topic on her upcoming exam. For the next session on Sunday we will work on the other topics for her exam on Monday that we didn't get through today.
The student and I continued to review two multiple step problems related to fixed asset disposal and additional adjustments made to these types of accounts. Both problems involved journal entries, and included the recognition of building demolition, the sale of machinery and transport costs, replacement resulting in efficiency (and no extension of useful life) vs. a replacement with the carrying value "known", a general "repair expense", and various disposal scenarios related to fire, sale, and donation (and he had an excellent understanding of these transactions and obtained a better understanding of the additional scenarios under the first question as well).
The student and I planned out his second class 10 minute class presentation covering process elimination. We created the problems he will be using in class. He learned to use common multiples when solving equations that variables do no eliminate initially.
