Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We went over fluid mechanics as the last chapter that she is learning this quarter. We did the practice homework questions to improve her skills on this chapter. We then started to review her old quizzes from the quarter to help her prepare for her final on Tuesday."
"This session went very smoothly. Last session we had discussed rotational kinematics and it seemed like this was an area we should focus on. We went through a series of rotational problems and addressed concepts of static equilibrium, torque, moment of inertia, and angular acceleration and velocity. We had a very productive discussion about how all of these quantities were analogous to translational quantities like force and mass. We talked briefly on what we were covering for Sunday and plan to meet again at 3 then."
"We went over work, energy the work-kinetic energy theorem, and power. We did a roller coaster problem demonstrating conservation of energy, and we also looked at examples from the textbook on the other topics. We talked specifically about finding the components of force in the direction of motion, and we looked at how you can use newton's laws and kinematics to find the answers (to check your work using work/energy, or if you get stuck). He did very well with the new material."
