Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We reviewed all topics up-to-date: free body diagrams, x and y components of forces, kinematics equations, friction, impulse, and momentum."
"We worked on review problems in preparation for the upcoming final exam. Topics included 1-D and 2-D kinematics of motion."
"We covered conservation of momentum and the impulse-momentum theorem. We also reviewed how kinematics and vector addition relate to solving problems involving impulse and momentum."
"The student was being introduced to forces and Newton's laws in her class. Her class is very idiosyncratic, so we tried to generalize those topics to a larger discussion of mechanics to show better how all the pieces fit."
"The student worked on a recent homework assignment. She made it through a few problems, with some of the difficulty occurring in trying to interpret the problems themselves when they seem a little vague. She is working on using her formula sheet as a go-to for pulling information and setting up calculations, as opposed to pulling formulas from memory."
"The student worked on angular dynamics. I'm going to prepare and bring questions in advance as well as email her some more angular dynamics questions."
