Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We reviewed for the student's exam on continuity, limits and trig functions. We went through practice problems, and reviewed the graphs of the six main trig functions"
"The student reviewed fractions and negative numbers today. She was able to calculate the height, given the dimensions of materials and objects. She reviewed her previous work on negative numbers as well. She has a good grasp on the concepts, so we are working on remembering a double negative number such as -(-10) is a positive number, and should be added instead of subtracted."
"Now that the student has a good grasp of multiplication, I decided to give her some area problems that make use of multiplication skills. I taught her the formulas for how to find the areas of rectangles and triangles. In addition to numerical area problems, I also gave her problems that involved basic algebra. I only gave her numerical problems this time; At our next session I would like to try some word problems. I then explained the definitions of circumference, diameter, and radius, and I taught her how to find the circumference and area of a circle. She is reading the first assigned book, and I emphasized the importance of reading for pleasure at our session last time, and I am glad to see that she has found a book she enjoys. We read a page of the book together and I asked her a few questions on it."
"We continued to go over multiplication, and I also introduced the student to division. He did well with both, but we are continuing to work towards him doing it without my help."
"We worked through a 2-proportion confidence interval problem and a 2-sample t-test (with unequal variances)."
"We worked on conic equations. We also worked on identifying the vertex and standard form. We then worked on using these forms to identify max and mins for the equations."
