Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Completed test review and aspects of calculations for a unit circle diagram re-write. Added a formula breakdown and concepts of vertical and horizontal stretch or shrink based on parts of the standard sinusitis equation."
"For this lesson, the student and I worked through content regarding rational zeroes, number of zeroes of a function, the rational zero theorem, creating equations with certain roots, and then worked on inverse and direct variation."
"Today we reviewed sections 3.1 and 3.2 before drilling problems from section 3.3 to prepare for the upcoming quiz. The students report that they have been doing better in the class."
"Today the student and I worked through application problems for exponential functions, i.e. A=Pe^(rt). When given a point, we practiced using logs to solve for r and t. She seemed to understand this topic well!"
"Covered chapter 2 test review for extra credit. Went over list worksheet in preparation for next exam. The student is improving and did well on her last exam. Next meeting will be scheduled for Sunday."
"Imaginary numbers and solving for roots. I told him to email me any questions he still had and I would email back more explanations. The student understands the concept, and just needs more practice solving these problems."
"The student and I continued to discuss and work out problems involving exponents, logarithms, rules of exponents/logarithms, power of power rule, solving for variables in the exponential position, and applications of exponents."
"We covered standard form for parabolas as well as circles. The student was initially confused about how to derive these from graphs and equations, but she picked it up easily when she realized her mistakes. She will finish the rest of her homework on her own."
"In this session the student and I reviewed arc lengths, vectors, and angles. She understands the material, and should review the formulas and the unit circle."
"We went over three sections from Ch. 6 to review for the test on Monday: identifying features of graphs of trig functions, using trig identities to rewrite expressions, and solving equation with trig functions. The focus was on using the trig identities."
"We did two sections of the student's Math book: 3.4 Properties of Logarithms and 3.5 Equation Solving & Modeling. She showed a strong understanding of the material."
"We worked on properties of linear functions, and how to use these to graph them. Then we did the same for quadratic functions. I also briefly helped Cristian with a couple of questions dealing with systems of equations"
