We focused on circles today. We talked about how to draw them, and how to identify diameter and radius on graph paper. I talked about pi, and how to use it to calculate circumference and area. We also built on these topics by calculating the perimeter and area of composite figures.

The student worked on simplifying fractions. He also worked on his assigned worksheet covering numbers and operations, and on singular and plural verbs in Language Arts.

The student and I reviewed the last chapter of his book(for his final test in school). He is a very bright young man and only had a few minor questions about the material covered. We covered permutations, combinations, mean/median and quartiles.

The student and I reviewed for his Math final. We went through the study guide his teacher provided and covered some topics in Chapter 1. I asked him to complete the rest of the chapter review and circled additional topics for him to review.

The student was notably sharp in this session. We started by doing some math dice of arithmetic of whole numbers and greater/less than fraction comparisons. He did really well. We worked on his time skills, first drawing hours and minutes on clocks separately, then writing the digital time from various clock examples. From these we worked on adding 30 minutes. The student stills confuses hours and minutes when adding time, but he did much better. We then worked on word problems, something he tends to get wrong on his school work. I left him with a couple to do on the topics he is interested in. The last few minutes we did a speed round of geometry flash cards and he got them all right.

For our last session today the student and I completed some practice worksheets in addition to some math games on her tablet (very educational games!) We also talked a little about her summer plans and how to study weekly in the little bits to keep her math skills sharp for the next school year.
