Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today we continued discussing correlation and reliability, including how they work and how to interpret them. We also discussed the student's research questions, including how to answer them using her measure and other related questions she can explore. She felt much more confident with the statistical concepts after this session and made great progress thinking about how she can use statistics to answer her research questions."
"Tonight we went over material for the student's exam. I think that the repetition is really helping him because he is learning to recognize problem types and how to solve certain problems. We covered finding z-scores, finding probabilities associated with z-scores, and using the empirical formula. We went over probabilities again, including regular probabilities and binomial probabilities, both of which the student has become much more comfortable with. We also talked about more general statistical concepts, including sampling and error."
" I worked with the student for an hour and a half last Tuesday at the library. We covered the first couple of chapters in his statistics textbook. We covered the basics like mean, median and mode, variance and standard deviation. We also covered frequency distributions, uniform, normal, bimodal, u-shaped."
"We reviewed prior material including limits, continuity, and differentiability. Then we worked on polar coordinate graphing and finding area using integration of polar coordinate equations."
"Today we continued to work on measuring. We used a balance and measured weight with kilograms and grams. We measured the temperature with a thermometer using both Celsius and Fahrenheit."
"The student redid a homework assignment from last week. We went over number lines and addition with negative integers."
