Session Summaries by SAT Math Tutors

Cincinnati, OH SAT Math tutoring
We started with a review of coordinate geometry, making sure to solidify the student's understanding of perpendicular/parallel lines. We also reviewed simplification of square roots and how to perform simple operations on squared values. Most of the time was spent on drilling her factoring skills and on her understanding of the characteristics of polynomials (where are the "zeros," where is the function undefined?). We also touched on geometry, making sure that she knew how to write formulas that depict the geometric object that is asked for. I will soon email her with a practice test that she should use to simulate the test-taking environment. There are no longer any general subjects that require review; She seems to have done well in retaining understanding from her earlier math classes. From this point, she just needs to practice the test as much as she can while accumulating additional test-taking tricks. Time will be spent on teaching her these, while also going over specific questions/question patterns that she needs to focus on.

The student and I did the SAT Math exam 1. She is very proficient and efficient at math. We reviewed select topics: domain and range, intersection and union, and strategies for factoring. We did several geometry and conversion problems. We will pick up with SAT Math 2 next time.

Today we worked on math, specifically arithmetic and algebra. Throughout the lesson I gave her tips on tackling the math section and the SAT as a whole (she hasn't taken the SAT yet and didn't know much of what to expect). One of the problem areas was paying careful attention to the details in the problem -- we worked on figuring out what the information was and how we were going to use it to solve it. She has a good grasp of graphs and I showed her how more complex-looking functions are related to graphs. I assigned math sections for review and practice with the follow-up questions. In addition, I gave her vocabulary work and encouraged her to tackle that as well.

Today we went over more sample problems that the student had missed on her practice tests. A few dealt with considering the properties of different shapes in a figure, another with the distance equation, and a few involved writing equations based on the information in a word problem. We ended by going over the concept of permutations and combinations, which was new to her, but got the hang of very quickly. She seemed very confident about the test by the end of the session.

For this lesson, after going over the homework from last class, the student and I continued to work on approaches to different kinds of SAT problems, went over how the grid-in questions work, and did a lot of practice problems. The student did well and mostly made minor mistakes that can easily be fixed with more careful attention. For next time, the student will be completing actual timed math sections.

The student and I covered more advanced algebra type questions, such as algebra II questions involving zero, negative, and fractional exponents, equations involving radicals and exponents, absolute value equations and inequalities, functions, special functions, and reflecting and translating function graphs. I suggested to the student that she should treat algebra II questions like she normally would with "easier" algebra I questions: 1) move all like elements to one side of the equation - variables with variables and numbers with numbers via multiplication, division, etc. 2) isolate the variable in question by undoing PEMDAS - to undo a fractional exponent, raise it by its reciprocal power; to undo a negative fractional exponent, first get rid of the negative by flipping your numerator and denominator and then deal with the remaining fraction exponent, etc. 3) whatever you do on one side, do the same for the other. The student was very comfortable working with absolute value questions and with functions. For function related questions, I did show the student how to solve problems that asks her how many x values satisfy a given y condition (g(x) = 2 for example). For these types of problems, she can draw a line y = 2 through the graph and just check how many times that line intersects the graph of the function. Other tips I've suggested is to always consider things like g(x), f(x), z(x), etc., as "y" values and whatever in the parenthesis itself as x. For special functions, such as quadratic functions, I taught the student that the vertex will always be equidistant between two points on the opposite sides of the line of symmetry. The student did not have any issues with translating and reflecting graphs.
