Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The concepts we covered were: linear, polynomial, square root, reciprocal, absolute value, greatest integer parent functions, vertical and horizontal translations, reflections in the coordinate axes, vertical and horizontal dilations, transformations with absolute value, operations with functions, composition of functions, finding a composite function with a restricted domain, decomposing a composite function, and the horizontal line test."
"The purpose of this session is to review the student's class material for a quiz on Friday. We reviewed topics on exponentiation: fractional exponents and radicals, rules of the exponents, and solving equations involving radicals. We also did a lot of practice. I checked his understanding; he understood everything. "
"The session this past Thursday went well. The student and I went over flashcards for the majority of the time, and the focus was primarily on multiplication with numbers 2-5. She has a good grasp on the rules of 0 and 1. I wanted to try to get a good foundation of memorizing these, and take it a chunk at a time. She will improve with regular flash card practice over the course of the week, and I will assess her on this upcoming Wednesday. She also brought her book home, which was very helpful. It can help us go over things she is currently learning using examples from the book. Wednesday I plan on doing more flashcards, seeing if she is ready for more numbers, and going over any questions she has about current material using her book."
"The session was at student's home with parents. Helped the student with: completing Algebra 2 homework over operations of functions, inverse of functions. Additionally, we discussed symbolic notation of functions and equations, "coached" her on good technique for substitutions, and checked her work on additional practice problems."
"The session was shared between two students. She worked on math mostly---solving inequalities using addition and subtraction, and using multiplication and division. We also started working on science--the chapter was on force (friction, gravity, etc.). She didn't have any math homework, and actually had a paper for her social studies class that she wanted help with revising, so we worked on that."
"The session was spent reviewing the material that would be on her math quiz on Wednesday: square and cube roots, and types of numbers (natural, whole, integer, rational, irrational). We finished by doing two more problems from the order of operations (fractions and decimals) worksheet we started the week prior."
