Session Summaries by SAT Math Tutors

Akron, OH SAT Math tutoring
Today the student and I reviewed the problems on the calculator section of the Practice SAT he took yesterday. Concepts that we reviewed today included absolute value, y-intercept formula, and equations of a circle. We also ran into several problems that involved setting up a system of equations from a word problem, and the solving that system of equations. Because of this, I decided to have him use the last 20 minutes of our session doing extra practice problems of that nature. He has made vast improvements so far, and continues to be optimistic about the exam.

We continued reviewing for the exam. The student knows all the material. Thoroughly double checking answers will help a lot on the exam. We went over ways to double check her work using different methods to ensure she does not make the same mistake twice (for example, if she solves a problem using SOHCAHTOA, then check the answers using the Pythagorean theorem; on a parabola, the vertex is halfway between the roots/ zeros of the function). In preparation for the test, she should go over her review packet again, doing the problems without looking at prior work or the answers. I expect she will do well on the final.

In our last session before the SAT, we jumped around in the SAT math workbook, tackling a variety of different question types that the student thought needed practice. These included simplifying complex rational expressions (fractions containing fractions), converting angle measures from degrees to radians, exponential equations, the quadratic formula applied to an equation initially containing fractions, and finding the dimensions of a fence around a pool given its area and a certain relationship between its length and width (which turns into a factored quadratic equation). We also briefly discussed overall exam strategy.

We started the session by going over several problems selected by both students (they chose problems from their SAT practice book that they found particularly challenging); these included percent increase and decrease (and tax rate), proportions, word problems about fractions. I emphasized the strategy of using direct translation from English to math. We also went over concepts and diagrams involving similar triangles; we looked at problems involving special triangles. I went over basics of right triangle trigonometry and showed them how to use the TI-84 to do trig calculations. We spent a few minutes going over the process of drawing and labeling reference right triangles in circular trig problems.

The student took a grammar section and math-no calc section back to back. We shall work on math for the rest of our duration and build up his skills when under pressure.

We reviewed one of the two SAT preparation exams that the student previously took. There were 14 multiple choice questions missed that we reviewed. The student had not finished the grid-in problems for either section (3 or 4), so we worked through the 5 grid-in questions for section 3. I asked the student to work on the grid-in problems for section 4 for review tomorrow. I showed the student some test-taking techniques such as how to check his work and how to eliminate incorrect answers from the multiple choice sections. I also showed him how to use numbers in algebraic functions where there are predominately letters. My only concern is the student's dependence on his calculator. There were several basic math problems that should be answered more quickly (example - 7 x 8). I encouraged him to make flash-cards to help him go a bit more quickly on his SAT.
