Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We reviewed even and odd functions, graphing of piecewise functions, and determining the domain and range of graphed functions. We also reviewed average rate of change for quadratic functions, and explored graphical transformations of functions (i.e. shifting, reflections, stretching). The student was very engaged with the exercises that were discussed, and he participated actively in solving the questions."
"We reviewed for a test tomorrow. A few tips: Always graph absolute value inequalities first. Review writing the equation for an arbitrary parabola given the graph. Be wary of squaring square roots when compositing functions (and in general)."
"We reviewed for both of the students' make up tests, reviewing all of the material they would have learned over the past couple of weeks. They both did well on their practice tests, and we made sure to go over the questions and topics that they had some questions and difficulties with. Student one had some questions with even and odd functions, and student two had some questions with equations and functions of lines, but by the end of the lesson they understood the topics a lot better."
"We reviewed for his test which was this morning by going over linear cost functions, fixed, variable and marginal cost. We also went over quadratic equations, their zeros, and their vertex. We also reviewed the difference quotients of a function."
"We reviewed for the student's exam today. In particular, we spent time working with finding the sum of various series, and how we can use sigma notation to determine terms of the sequence."
"We reviewed for the student's pre-calc exam tomorrow. She should be in pretty good shape. The most difficult part will be finding real zeros of polynomials using the rational zero test and other methods. We created a process of how she can best approach these types of questions depending on what information is presented. She should look over her notes and do some practice problems on finding the zeroes and graphing horizontal, vertical, and slant asymptotes and check her answers to make sure she understands how to get the right answer and how to know that the answer she gets is right. We also went over some strategies on how she can check her work and how to avoid making sign errors in calculations."
