Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I went over vectors, which included the dot product and cross product. Using these concepts, we found vectors perpendicular and parallel to planes."
"We reviewed the completed assignment for linear and absolute value inequalities. Overall, she did well, but I'm going to give her a few additional problems this weekend because she is still forgetting to first identify the vertex then choose points surrounding that (x,y) coordinate to accurately draw the graph. She also worked on her homework assignment for 6.2 - Properties of Exponential Functions, and we reviewed the 6.1 quiz she took last Thursday. The problem asked the students to calculate the population of replicating bacteria given the replication rate, original population, and observation time. The notable difference between this population change and all the textbook problems are this is asexual reproduction. This changes the format of the equation. She is now clear on how to solve these problems. Her other error was a calculator error, but the set up was correct."
"The student and I discussed her biostatistics homework, which covered linear regression and predictive modeling for serum levels in patients."
"We covered linear approximation and related rates, which is what the student was struggling with. He was eager to figure it out and willing to listen. I helped the student with techniques for interpreting word problems. I emailed him some practice problems afterwards."
"The student and I practiced the fundamental theorem of calculus, the integration of definite integrals, and finding the area between two functions (both horizontally and vertically). We did many practice problems with these - both solving for the integrals with math and sketching out the graphs."
"We worked mostly on different types of problems from a Math site to review for the final exam, which covers problems including derivatives, integration strategies, area under the curve, integration by parts, partial differentiation, double integrals, and improper integrals."
