Continuing our review for the student's finals, we worked on calculating distance and midpoint between two points. After he did really well on that, we returned to areas and circumferences of circles. I also showed him how to find the volume of a cylinder. A common theme in his homework was comparing the areas of different shapes, and he successfully calculated and chose the biggest area. We will meet one more time before his final, but so far, he seems like he understands the material well.

This sessions occurred on Thur. 5/9. We worked on solving inequalities involving one variable to review for a test. We worked on two out of three textbook assignments that the student needed to complete.

The student practiced various questions found on a previous integrated algebra achievement exam in which she had to show the work and solve using algebraic equations.
She practice answering questions for comprehension for her living science class, focused on differences between cellular respiration and photosynthesis. She was able to complete all the problems when provided modeling and examples.

Today, the student started learning about combinations and permutations. He is very bright and was able to grasp high-school level concepts quite well. We also spent some time reviewing his 12x tables briefly.

The student and I finished up material that he needed to cover for his math final. We worked on proportions and working with decimals, fractions, and percents. I reminded him to really think through the decimals, fractions, and percents. Sometimes they can be tricky. He has all skills necessary to complete the problems, and he just needs to make sure he avoids simple errors. We then did a brief wrap-up of the other material we had gone over to this point. I made sure he was comfortable working with negative and positive numbers in addition and subtraction, as well as multiplication/division. I also reviewed ordering fractions and adding/subtracting mixed numbers. I believe he is ready for his math final, and he should do just fine!

I worked with the two students today. One student and I worked on his math homework and started memorizing multiplication facts. I was very surprised that he has almost all of them memorized.
The other student and I worked on long division, and I also did a couple of critical thinking problems with him. The last problem was a critical thinking problem for a 5th grader and he completed it with only a little help from me.
