Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"During this session, the assignment we covered involved working on a data set. We analyzed this data set using STATA. We covered the types of analysis we would do and how we would enter the data into the program."
"The student had a sub today so the lecture was extra confusing. The homework was on the Law of total probability and Bayes Theorem. I helped guide her through those formulas as they were needed in the homework. She does well once a few things are set up and explained, so I just have to help find how she can find those initial things on her own."
"We covered a number of different topics. First answering specific questions regarding terminology and how different variables are used. Then we went over a few different concepts together, in which I would create a simple problem to solve, such as: "There is a bag with 3 red marbles and 2 blue marbles. What is the probability that you will reach in and grab a red marble, and then reach in and grab a blue marble". We also discussed how a question like this changes depending on if you replace the marble after taking it out of the bag, or if you leave it out. We also covered standard deviation, looking at both how to understand it conceptually, and how to calculate it."
"Cumulative review in preparation for a quarter test on Monday. We discussed vocabulary relating to variable types and experiment design, quickly reviewed measures of center and spread since that was done in depth last week, discussed how to calculate Z scores and what they mean in the context of the area under the normal distribution curve."
"In our session, the student and I continued to progress through material that will be covered on her elementary statistics exam that is to take place on Wednesday. Specifically, we focused on population statistics and distributions in addition to binomial probabilities."
"The student and I used her TI-84 to answer questions about the normal distribution and expedite the process of finding z-scores and p-values."
