Session Summaries by Pre-Calculus Tutors

Auburn, WA Pre-Calculus tutoring
The student and I worked through a bunch of practice problems she had on graphs and transformations of Trig functions. She largely understood the material but had some weak spots when problems had a lot of transformations going on. We covered a portion of the next section on graphing tangent and she seemed to already be getting it.

Today, the student and I prepared for her pre-calculus "final exam" that she has tomorrow. Her exam will focus on polar coordinates, so we completed a review worksheet and reviewed how to convert between polar and standard coordinates (including imaginary numbers) and graphing polar equations. She at first lacked confidence with the material because her teacher went through the notes quickly. Once she had a chance to absorb the material and understand why certain processes were being done, we worked through examples together until she felt comfortable with the problems. I do not think there is any one concept where she struggled most; I think she just needed to see the material slowed down with more in-depth explanations. She would often have me work through a problem, and then she was able to complete problems on her own. After today's session, I think she will do well on her exam tomorrow. I do not have any concerns from this session.

We worked on graphing trigonometric functions, trig identity, and precalculus wheel problems. He mentioned that he is a visual learner and it helps him when someone solves a problem in front of him. So, I solved few of the problems for him while he watched. Then, I asked him to do the rest on his own and I checked his work. He was smart and he was a fast learner. I just pointed out the steps that he had to follow in solving each problem. This was my first session with him.

My first session with this student went very well. I was immediately struck by her genuine desire not to just find a way to get the answers she's looking for, but to understand why and how it works the way it does. We focused on reviewing a homework assignment regarding transformations of linear functions using vertex form. I tried to emphasize how the basic principles were being reapplied in each question, regardless of how different they seemed at first glance. This seemed to help her confidence in approaching problems, once we were able to put them in terms of the concepts and procedures that she's already familiar with. The last quarter of our session was the student moving on into an assignment on quadratic functions and using the quadratic formula to find the roots of those functions. She is definitely a whiz with the calculations, although she did make a couple costly errors here and there in her haste to find the answer. That is one area we can definitely make a goal to improve upon going forward. All in all, she is definitely good at math; she just needs help connecting some of the dots so that new questions aren't so overwhelming. I'm looking forward to working more with her.

We started the session reviewing the student's current homework, which involved calculating means, variances, standard deviations, medians, and upper and lower quartiles. She already seemed comfortable with the calculations involved, so we took the opportunity to discuss what variance and standard deviation represent and some of their applications, as well as the difference between a mean and a median and why someone might be interested in one over the other. We then moved on to look at some of her upcoming work, which dealt with linear equations. This was still largely review. We worked, in particular, on finding equations of lines given a slope and a point on the line, and with parallel and perpendicular lines.

The student and I went over topics recently covered in class and in her homework. The first topic we discussed was polynomial long division and synthetic division. She was very adept at applying the synthetic division algorithm but was a little unsure regarding what the method was doing so consequently her understanding of polynomial long division suffered. I highlighted the fact that the two methods produce the same results in that given a factor they allow one to find the other factors of a polynomial. We practiced a couple of polynomial long divisions and she was able to apply the method independently. We also briefly discussed functions and their inverses. We related the domain and range of the original function to the domain and range of the inverse. We also briefly discussed how to sketch functions based on basic parent functions that had transformations in order to find the domain and range of the given function. Special focus was given to radical functions. We reviewed the remainder/ factor theorem as well as the rational root theorem. The last topic covered was the set of complex numbers. We learned that quadratic equations with negative discriminants, which used to have no solutions, now had complex solutions. I practiced multiplying complex conjugates and also discussed powers of i.
