Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The purpose of this session was to review the material prior to the student's AP statistics exam on Tuesday. We began our session by reviewing his previous quizzes and identify the mistakes as well as what he could have done differently. We then went over chapters 18 and 19 in his textbook. Chapter 18 covered the basics of a sampling distribution while chapter 19 discussed how to calculate the confidence interval for a sample proportion. We discussed these calculations as well as what the confidence interval means in regards to its interpretation. I left the session feeling confident that he understood the material and would do well on his exam on Tuesday."
"We covered a lot of material this session and went over the solutions for both HW #6 and the practice quiz problems. The topics included confidence intervals, expected value and variance of geometric series, binomial/Bernoulli, and the Poisson distribution. The student did well following along and was able to answer questions when asked. I think we had a really productive session, and she understands the concepts much better now!"
"We covered paired t-tests and ANOVA. We walked through the ANOVA calculations for total sum of squares, between sum of squares, and within sum of squares. We then worked on some problems using STATA. The student was able to follow the material and do the problems."
"Tonight we went over the review document for the student's exam. We discussed how to use both the ANOVA and t tables to fill out tables on the exam as well as how to answer many of the more conceptual questions pertaining to concepts like multicollinearity, binary variables, and VIF."
"Today, the student and I worked on continuous random variables, introduction to integrals with respect to probability distributions, histograms, binomial distribution, conditional probability, sample points, mutual exclusivity with respect to random variables, and the additive rule with respect to random variable unions. She's doing especially well with mutual exclusivity with respect to random variables. She reviewed concepts she had questions about in preparation of her midterm. She also completed several practice problems to apply confirmed concepts."
"We worked on problems for chapters 16 and 17. Chapter 16 covered sample distributions, and 17 covered confidence intervals. Chapter 16 involved finding probabilities based on a given sample mean and sample size, and 17 involved creating and interpreting confidence intervals."
