Session Summaries by Geometry Tutors

Hartford, CT Geometry tutoring
The student and I reviewed the chapter on quadrilaterals. She began by working on the textbook homework which covered parallelograms, identifying whether a shape is a parallelogram and also several proves of the theorems. The student and I then briefly reviewed how rectangles, rhombuses and squares are different/similar to parallelograms and each other. She again worked on textbook problems involving proofs as well as applications of the theorems.

Today's session went very well. The student and I went over all of the subjects her current chapter (Special Right Triangles, SOHCAHTOA, Law of Sines) covered to prepare for her upcoming test. With consistent work, we have continued to notice improvement in her overall understanding. I look forward to our next session.

During this session, we went over some basic geometry concepts by drawing a geometry concept map. We started with points and lines and ended with planes since the student hasn't learnt solids in space. We recalled some theorems and formulas regarding triangles, rectangles, and circles. It was quite a long time since the student learned those concepts. Therefore, he did remember them very well. However, after reviewing, he was able to pick up those memories and applied them into problem solving. In the later part of our session, we went over the student's homework packets. We looked at each geometry problem and practiced them one by one. He did well on most part of the assignments, yet still missed some answers. He was confused with some questions and lacked the methods and strategies to solve some problems. I helped him understand and solve the problem by first reviewing the concepts and modeling the solution for him. In general, the student seemed to be more confident about geometry after reviewing concepts and formulas. In the next session, we will continue reviewing concepts and theorems the student learned and discuss questions the student may have about his homework packets. He may practice some of his homework at home by himself before we meet next time.

The student and I worked on surface area and volumes of complex shapes. Our first example was a cone on top of a cylinder, then a pyramid on top of a rectangular prism, then two cones joining at the tip. First, she was worried about memorizing the formula, so we concentrated on understanding how the formula came to be, and by the end she was getting the hang of it.

The student and I began the session discussing her general comfort level with mathematics, specifically her strength in algebra compared to geometry. We worked on her understanding of the basic trig functions as well as how to use the inverse trig functions to solve for distances. This included some review of properties of operations, in order to manipulate complex fractions. Her conceptual understanding is very strong. Her calculation is also very strong, but deliberate. I will try, in future sessions, to find whether her calculation speed is an optimal strategy for her. After reviewing and working some trig problems, the student worked on classification of quadrilaterals. I discouraged the student from viewing the vertices as fixed, in order to more quickly and easily classify. We also discussed her prior knowledge of transversals, especially in the use of formal and informal proofs. I like to end every math session with a brief discussion of some practical area of overlap. We discussed how to use modular arithmetic as a high-efficiency method for error-checking work. She and I ended the session with an open-ended question: what are the possible causes of the edge effect in biology?

The student and I prepared for his upcoming quiz on volume. We mostly worked on problems involving composite 3-dimensional shapes and learned how to find their volumes by dividing them into separate parts. We briefly looked at surface area and learned how to find volume with only surface area provided. Lastly, we worked on some word problems to understand the "real-life" application of volume, as well as additional problems where we used volume equations in various ways (e.g. to solve for height if only volume is given). The student was very quick to pick up on the concepts and mindful of the tips I provided.
