Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We reviewed Chapter 3, sections 1-7, on solving linear systems graphically, alphabetically and with matrices."
"Today the student and I worked on: estimating square roots, rational (whole, natural, integer) and irrational numbers, two-step equations, the distributive property, combining like terms, and multi-step problems using distribution and term combination."
"Topics covered include the u-substitution technique, rational functions, trigonometric integrals, and area under the curve."
"Today we reviewed areas between two curves, the trapezoidal rule, Simpson's rule, and general integration for the student's upcoming exam. I gave him some tips on how to combat the trapezoidal and Simpson's rule problems so that on the exam he shouldn't get stuck on the basic steps of these problems."
"We covered more about basic integration and also covered limits of trig functions and the best methods to use to solve those. I'm emailing the student a practice worksheet for the limits, but I think she fully understands the integral concepts for her test on Thursday. She also is going to email me the information for our session on Monday afternoon."
"The student decided he wanted help with physics for the foreseeable future, so we reviewed his homework regarding angular problems. We discussed how to change revolutions into radians and dealt with moments of inertia, torque, acceleration, kinetic energy, velocity, and momentum. I emphasized the need for writing down all givens, things needed, and any equations necessary before trying to begin the problem."
