Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today we focused mainly on pre-calculus to prepare the student for her pre-calculus exam. We devised methods to remember trigonometric functions and identities. In physics, we focused on using acceleration to solve vector equations."
"The student and I read through the Chapter 3 learning objectives and worked example problems on any he was unfamiliar with. I also kept a formula sheet as we went and left it for him as a reference."
"We covered z score, sums of arithmetic and geometric sequences, as well as finding the nth term."
"We went over how to substitute polynomials to work with expressions we are familiar with factoring. Then we went over how to turn that into a quadratic times a linear equation. After a few times, the student was able to do the problem a lot easier."
"The student started a new unit on trigonometric functions. Today we worked on angles in a unit circle and how to convert between degrees and radians. We also reviewed how to find complementary and supplementary angles. She remembers this well from Algebra 2, so she did not have a problem. I moved forward and reviewed with her all the angles of the unit circle, how to construct them, and how to find the points of the unit circle using trigonometric functions."
"We started working on material for Trig functions. We worked on some material on converting between radians and degrees, and the ratio definition of sine, cosine, and tangent. We did a little work on the idea of the unit circle."
