Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We covered concepts such as mean, median, mode, and range. The student already had a great grasp on that material, so we moved right along. We began to cover the normal distribution and t-distribution and how to use each. We ended the session talking about confidence intervals. He had a great attitude towards the material and responded well to the exercises we did. I left him with a few more problems to finish on one of his handouts. We plan to review those problems the next time we meet."
"We worked through an activity created by the student's teacher to explore how mean, median, and standard deviation change as the values in a data set change. This included trying to create a data set (of n=8) that had a certain mean and standard deviation. She seemed to feel far more comfortable with the material after our session."
"We went over the student's homework assignment on basic probabilities. We discussed how to do permutations and combinations on the calculator and how to differentiate between the two (order matters with permutations, but with combinations it does not). We also discussed how to draw a tree diagram and how to use the fundamental counting principle. She did very well with the permutations and combinations, and we will continue to review these for her exam."
"Concepts covered: probability, permutations, combinations, unions, intersections, additive rule, and counting methods. The student reviewed the probability notes provided by his teacher and completed several review problems associated with the material."
"The student had a worksheet covering probability distributions and calculating the mean and standard deviation of the distribution. We first went through one entire problem by hand. Then, I showed her how the calculator could do multiple calculations at once to speed up the process. Finally, I showed her a calculator shortcut to check the answers. The last part of the worksheet had combining different random variables together."
"We covered independent and conditional probabilities using data in a two-way table. We also used Venn diagrams and discussed events and their complements and the intersection and union of sets. We reviewed a HW assignment and worked through some problems together."
