Session Summaries by Computer Science Tutors

Chicago, IL Computer Science tutoring
We reviewed percentages - percent increase/decrease. The student does very well when calculating a percent, but gets confused with the wording of a problem so we worked a few problems that asked her to find the percentage in different ways. We also continued working on graphing. She is doing better graphing points and no longer gets confused with which axis or which way on the axis to go.

We spent the session today learning about how Java Applets work and how they are used in web browsers. I explained to him how the paint function draws images to an Applet. We covered the fillRectangle, fillOval, drawRectangle, drawOval and changeColor functions. After learning these functions we spent the rest of the session completing a lab which required us to draw on an Applet.

The student continued working on the final level of the game. The student is pretty excited about getting my vector graphics into the game. (He doesn't know what vector graphics are, but he knows that they'll look better in the game than scanned paper drawings do.)

The student requested that we work on Data Structures. The session began with a discussion of algorithm evaluation ("Big-O" notation basics). This was followed by a review of concepts from this summer, particularly those pertaining to abstract classes. Also, some introductory work was done regarding template types. Then we worked through the general class structure requested by her teacher for an upcoming assignment. Finally, we reviewed the logic of creating and searching binary trees.
