Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We went through the student's midterm exam, and I explained concepts she was unsure about. Then we went through one of her quizzes. She is doing well."
"The student and I reviewed her problem sheet on binomial statistics. There were several of the questions that she had initially answered one way that we found had different answers. We worked through the details of the solutions, and the student understood these solutions and their methods, including looking up values in the normal table. We also started working on the next Excel assignment and completed the binomial portion of the work. We started the first few exercises of the standard normal portion."
"We reviewed the student's homework assignment for chapter 8 (binomial distribution and probabilities). We covered mean, std dev and single and cumulative probabilities. The student spent the whole time on completing the homework assignment. I will send her a summary sheet of the things we covered, how to use the graphing calculator for pdf and cdf calculations, calculation of mean and std dev and examples of solved problems."
"We worked on logs, ln, exponents, bases, and solving equations. The student made progress on the unit. Additional repetition will cement the rules and strategies better. She works with more speed than she used to. We discussed musical pitch (frequency of middle C and the frequencies of other C notes) as a way to introduce logarithms. She reported that her last test was a 93 (not a 91 as previously reported)."
"We covered graphing exponential functions and reviewed previous problems for a math project. The student was struggling with negative exponents and graphing numbers smaller than 1. We covered each variation of the equation and general forms to help the student understand how the function works."
"Confidence intervals and hypothesis test for the difference of two proportions. Attitude was positive. For interpretation, just look at the questions and use the problem's language and definition of the parameter to write your conclusion."
