Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student has a quiz on the material in unit one in her statistics course. We spent the majority of our time today reviewing for this quiz, covering about half of the material that will be included in the quiz. Topics we reviewed included statistics versus parameters, population versus sample, proportionality, consistency, variable measurements, and frequency distribution. We looked over her peers' answers to the discussion question and I helped her craft brief responses."
"Reviewed different sets of distribution. The student didn't know how to recognize which scenario called for which distribution. After a small review, we were able to successfully go through multiple problems dealing with all types distributions."
"We worked on a packet provided by the student's teacher. He learned how to discern the elements of a statistical statement, the different between discrete/continuous, and qualitative/quantitative data sets. After practice with each area he got the hang of it and moved faster."
"We reviewed the last two quizzes and discussed the thought process of some of the wrong answers. We also re-worked the problems and reviewed the different ways to solve the problems. We conducted the correlation of box plots and histograms connections and data summary. Within the box plot graphics, we discussed different scenarios of what the data is concluding. We also practices some fundamental review of simplifying radicals to get exact values."
"We covered how to enter data points into a graphing calculator and run a linear regression to determine the best-fit line. We discussed correlation and how to interpret the value. We also discussed what residuals are and how to calculate them."
"We worked through a lot of types of problems, but focused particularly on creating confidence intervals and hypothesis testing. We finished up the student's practice exam."
