"We covered springs and pendulums and wave behavior. He was struggling the most with pendulums, but not very much. He seemed to understand the material once it was explained to him. I told him to make sure that he always includes units while doing calculations, since they can help reduce mistakes. He still has some more of his review packet that we skipped over."
"We went over new material on momentum, impulse and conservation of momentum. She needed some help solving problems that involved material from previous chapters (energy and acceleration due to gravity), and some help with understanding the difference between impulse and force. We went through the three types of collision problems - elastic, inelastic and explosions. I showed her how to draw a picture before using the equations, and that seemed to help her. She seems prepared for her quiz."
"The student worked on the force diagrams and sum of forces for three labs her instructor performed in class. We looked at the forces acting on a object rolling up an incline and down an incline, with and without friction as well as another look at a cart pulley system to find the tension in the cord and the acceleration of the system."
