Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today the student and I talked about solving linear equations and linear inequalities. We discussed the different symbols used in these problems, and we covered interval notation, set notation, and graphing on a number line. We did a few problems together, and then she did more problems on her own with guidance from me. We will be meeting again this Wednesday to prepare for an upcoming exam."
"We covered finding maxima/minima in quadratic functions (in word problems) and finding a quadratic function given three points."
"The student needed some extra help before his exam. We went through all of the unit homework (mostly equations, inequalities, and absolute values) due the next day and, to be honest, he knew most of it. There were just a few crucial details that had slipped by him or hadn't quite clicked yet, but he seemed much more confident in his calculations by the time I left. We both went back and really focused on the definition of absolute value and why that impacted the equations he was doing. I think breaking it down helped the most here."
"We discussed how to find horizontal asymptotes, vertical asymptotes, and holes in algebraic graphs. We also talked about how to find or isolate an unknown variable. We did lots of factoring and also talked about how to find restrictions to equations. The student did really well today and he should practice a lot more to master the concepts."
"The student and I worked on review problems for his quadratics test, focusing on graphing quadratic equations, finding the axis of symmetry, finding the vertex of the quadratic, determining if the vertex is a maximum or minimum, and plotting coordinates on the graph. We also focused on some general review problems focusing on factoring, and using factoring to solve quadratic equations. We also went through a refresher on how to use the quadratic formula."
"The student and I reviewed for his test which covered solving quadratic equations. The first method for solving quadratic equations we covered was the graphing method. He understood how to find the solutions of a function given its graph but was unsure of how to produce a graph given an equation. We focused on the steps needed to produce a graph from equations in both vertex and standard form. The steps used were borrowed from the reflection method of graphing quadratics. We then covered solving quadratics by factoring. We discussed three different methods of graphing. The student was comfortable with using the AC method to factor quadratic trinomials so we just did a couple of practice problems to reinforce the notions. A lot of attention was paid to the grouping method. We went over general skills and steps involved to use grouping to factor. He became comfortable with the method after a few practice problems but could use some more practice. We skimmed over the zero product property because he was very familiar with it. We saw how it would be used to find solutions of a quadratic after factoring.
We also covered solving quadratics using square roots. To be completely comfortable with this method, he needed to be comfortable with completing the square and recognizing trinomial squares. We spent a lot of time going over this topic. We saw how the terms are related in the trinomial squares and learned what to do (complete the square) if trinomials were not square. We looked at the big picture and discovered that CAtS allowed us to make a trinomial square with which we could solve with square roots. Lastly, we went over the quadratic formula. We mostly worked on memorizing the formula. We saw how it was less elegant to use (relative to the other methods) but recognized its power in solving all quadratics. We learned what the discriminant is and explored its relationship to the quadratic formula. We discovered that it could be used to determine the existence of solutions to a quadratic equation.
To wrap it up, I showed the student an easy way to look at radicals (specifically square roots) and we worked on getting comfortable with simplifying radicals. He should do well on the test with more practice regarding the grouping method of factoring and completing the square."
