Understanding how quickly students learn, what types of strengths they have, and their motivations for...

Recent Competition Math Tutoring Session Notes

The student checked with his teacher and was right about everything they had skipped. We spent the session in much the same way as the last -- working problems together from each major section of the latest math chapters. If he can do them on his own when I'm in the room, he should be able to do them on the test :)

Today the student learned about how to solve systems of equations by graphing. The student learned to shade areas of the graph for functions that are inequalities and then determine the answer by shading overlapping areas. The student also learned to solve systems of inequalities by substitution and elimination.

Today we reviewed the areas the student felt she needed to further review. We worked on inequalities and solving for a variable. We also discussed percents and calculating tax. She did well calculating the percentages, and finding the final cost. We worked in her book through various review sections and problems.

The student and I split our session between math and reading. The first half was spent to understanding basic (really basic) number theory and combining like terms. We talked about the difference between an integer and an integer multiplied by a variable, including how they cannot be combined and why. Then, we read some articles in the newspaper. We read one about the NBA playoffs with the Spurs and the Heat in which we talked about how to outline a paper/article. Then, we read a very inspiring story in which a student overcame difficult obstacles to obtain a 3.9 GPA and a valedictorian status. I can tell that he is really eager to learn. He really has a lot of potential.

We continued preparing for the student's math test by reviewing the rest of her old tests. I worked through the problems with her, and I told her to review that section on her online program after I left. I gave her the following rules for her test tomorrow:
1) Write "Area of a triangle= .5bh" at the top of your test.
2) Check your easy math (to guard against silly mistakes like 4x5=21).
3) Make sure your answer makes sense. (Such as, you can't buy 4.2 pickles. Or, if you're converting meters to kilometers, your answer has to be smaller than the number you started with.)
4) Do the whole test over again on a new sheet of paper. And again. And again.

The student and I reviewed topics and he worked on completing his assigned online homework. He made it through 3 of 10 online question sets. He plans to continue reviewing/working on homework at our next meeting, as well as starting on his first project for the class.
