Session Summaries by Pre-Calculus Tutors

Louisville, KY Pre-Calculus tutoring
We reviewed concepts and problems for the SAT II Math Subject Test Levels 1 and 2. We focused mainly on geometry questions and reviewed different properties of circles, polygons, and inscribed circles. We also did a few problems that required trigonometric identities and polynomial factoring.

We completed several problems involving trigonometric identities. I liken these problems to algebra puzzles in which students have to rewrite the expressions into different forms to reach the stated conclusion. In preparation for her assessment, she needs to remember the Pythagorean identities (or at least be able to derive them). We were able to successfully do this by the end of the session. I strongly feel that she will do well on this quiz.

For our first session, the student and I reviewed her homework over 3-dimensional vectors from her textbook. Before we got started, we identified problem areas and the subjects that her class was going over for this unit. We also talked about her test date and what we needed to do to get her prepared by that time. The first homework was on page 419, #'s 1-16 and 19. We did not, however, go through all of the questions as many of them were simply duplicates of each other with the numbers changed to serve as extra practice. She already had a very good foundation with the concepts involved, and only needed minimal guidance through many of the questions. The few questions that she did need extra help on, we worked through them slowly together, and she understood all concepts and calculations needed to solve the questions very quickly. The section over 3-dimensional vectors was 10.3, and after that homework, we continued on to section 10.4, which was a preview before her class actually got to that section a few days after our tutoring session. 10.4 was over dot products and vector projections. She had never seen these before, and I personally also needed a refresher on many of the topics, so we simply went through the actual lesson in that section together to teach ourselves the concepts. We were also able to check the answers to the homework (page 426, #1-19 odds, 20-25, 27, and 29) to verify we were doing them correctly. Save for one or two questions (which ended up being much simpler than we were both attempting them as), the whole session went very smoothly without major issues, if any. I was very impressed as she consistently understood 2 or 3 concepts from being explained a single general concept. We will have a session directly before her test to go over the entire section as a test review.

The student and I continued to review for his test next week. We reviewed arithmetic and geometric series, sigma notation for summation of sequences, and began our review of mathematical induction. We focused this session primarily on arithmetic sequences, covering the formulas for finding an nth term, finding the sum up to an nth term, sigma notation, and applying these formulas to various types of problems. He responded well to instruction and got better at the book practice problems after repetition. He is adept at remembering formulas. In general, he understood the material (which can get complex in this topic) well and was able to grasp even difficult concepts after listening to explanations and asking questions.

The student needed help on ellipses today. First I reviewed how vertical and horizontal shifts appear in equations so that she could recognize how to find the center. Then I pointed out the difference in the form of equations for circles and ellipses, namely that ellipses will have variables appear in fraction form and will always be set equal to 1. She then did some problems matching equations with graphs, and finding the vertices, foci, and eccentricity of ellipses given their equations. She did well on this, but needs to be careful to subtract the squares of the axes rather than add them to find the square of the distance to the foci. She was in the habit of adding because the formula is very similar to the Pythagorean theorem. She had a hard time dealing with the problem that required her to also complete the square to convert an equation into standard form, so I took some time to review how to complete the square with her. Finally she did some problems in which she was given an axis and a focus and had to find the other axis. She did well with these once she understood that she could just plug in the values into the formula for finding the foci. She probably needs a little more reinforcement on manipulating these equations, especially when they are not in standard form.

The student and I went over a quiz he had completed for his math class. The quiz was covering degree and radian measure, the unit circle, and graphs of trig functions. He already understood most of the material on the quiz, but we looked at some of the problems that gave him trouble. We then talked about how to apply transformations on a given function, both when a function is presented as an equation and when it is a set of data points. This is still something of an area of confusion for the student, and I plan to provide more examples for next week's session.
