"We reviewed physics in preparation for his upcoming physics midterm, and we focused primarily on free body diagrams, solving for the various required forces, equation set-up, and graphing. We practiced how to draw an accurate free body diagram, which forces will always be present, and how to use equal and opposite forces to solve for values that you are interested in. He followed the process well and was able to manipulate the equations for what was needed. We went over a detailed problem set-up for any physics equations involving writing out the necessary equations, identifying the given information, the unknown values, the required values, a diagram of the motion, and a free body diagram if necessary. We went over the review and solved many of the problems involving vector addition, summation of forces, parabolic motion, frictional forces, centripetal acceleration, period of revolution, circular/rotational motion, momentum, work, and energy. We practiced using geometry and trigonometry to solve incline problems as well.
There were many areas of prior material where he did not feel confident, and when reviewing the lecture notes and materials provided, we found that he has missed quite a bit in explanations. I filled in any major gaps as much as I could within the time that we had, but I feel he needs more time reviewing the prior material covered. He has said he will continue studying and let me know if he needs anymore help in review, and I am going to email him some materials that will help him review. He said he will continue to use the memorization application and flash cards that cover his material. "
