Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We went over hypothesis testing, linear regression, and analysis of data sets. The student understood everything significantly better than prior to our first session, and seems in control of the rest of her work."
"We went through many problems in probability and statistics. The problems involved the normal, binomial, uniform, and Poisson distribution as well as the Central Limit Theorem. The student is getting quite adept at solving these problems, and is much better at manipulating the calculator as well."
"We worked on review for the student's class tomorrow and discussed the overall format of the class. They are still working on the introductory information like vocabulary and different graphics that are used in statistics. We went over concepts she was confused about and then worked through a few example problems."
"We worked on reviewing homework from chapter 9, involving test statistics with proportions and two-sample tests. Then we reviewed for the student's test on Monday. We did homework that was due later today involving everything that would be found on the test. We did more practice test statistic problems with both proportions and z-scores, and worked on determining null and alternative hypothesis conclusions. Finally, we talked about interpreting the results correctly using several examples from the book."
"We worked quite a bit with simple random samples, including an appendix named "Table B" composed of random digits. We worked through about 15 problems, trying to figure out how to best answer them using the methodology of statistics."
"We worked through a lesson plan I had prepared for the student on Combination & Permutation problems, and began a chapter on standard deviation, practicing several questions both by hand and with the graphing calculator."
