Session Summaries by Pre-Calculus Tutors

Meriden, CT Pre-Calculus tutoring
Today we mainly talked about transformations, asymptotes, scale factors, and graphing from using parent functions. Tables were used to plot the graphs to show how every graph was properly plotted.

The student and I had a great session. Our last time meeting, I had left her with quite a bit of work to do on her own. I was a little worried because it was stuff we hadn't necessarily covered or worked that much on, but she was able to get through the rest of them without any issues. After we talked a little bit about what she went over on her own, we moved on to the new material. There were several new topics we covered. This included imaginary numbers and x (or y) substitution. She seemed to catch on fairly quickly to the imaginary numbers concept and was able to prove several situations involving them. The x-substitution was a little bit more difficult. It is a bit of a harder thing to teach because there's so many ways you can go about solving these types of problems. It's all about finding the one that works for you. We did find one that worked for the student and over time I feel like she will get a better handle on some of the other ways that also work. I plan on reviewing this with her because I feel it is an important tool to learn as it has use in many math settings, not just pre-calc. Imaginary numbers are one of those things that you kind of use in pre-calc, but not much after (in my experience).

In today's session we reviewed for the student's upcoming pre-calc test. Our focus was specifically on Descartes' rule of signs and finding roots of polynomial functions higher than power three. After some practice he really started to get the concept and did very well completing the problems. I think he will do very well on this test. He is going to review more for the next two days and we will touch base again if he feels any further review is necessary.

We worked on estimating the area under a curve using rectangles. The student struggled with the components of this process at first, but after going through it a few times she was able to work it out on her own.

We went over Descartes' Rule of Signs, and used it to find possible roots to a polynomial of higher power. She was unsure about how many positive, negative, and complex zeroes there could be, but I think she understands now. We also went over how to do synthetic division again, as well as how to roughly make a PNI chart using Descartes' Rule of Signs. She understood the concept much better by the end than at the beginning. We also cleared up some questions about the positive and negative cases, and how the negative case for it is made. We also went over how to sketch a graph if we are not given a graphing calculator but are given the factored form of the polynomial. Overall, she's very intelligent and perceptive and the session went very well.

This week, the student and I worked on quadratic functions, going over the notes and problems that her class had covered. We reviewed the basic terms and concepts of quadratics: degree 2 polynomial, maximum of 3 terms, standard form, vertex form, parabolic shape, axis of symmetry, and vertex. Her professor focused on the application of quadratic functions in class, so after covering the basics, we spent the rest of our time going over the two practice problems from class slower and in more detail. We covered regression, and how to not only apply it to a set of data in Excel, but also what it means in terms of the data, and how its equation can be applied to the original problem/ data set. She talked about how her professor tends to move at a very fast pace in class, and sometimes, even though she does her best to write down everything from the board, it can be difficult to understand where the numbers and/or equations are coming from, or what the professor means. By the end of the session, she showed greater confidence in her notes, and what the class had covered. I told her that she should check with her professor to get an a-okay, but once she does, she can probably take pictures of the board or record the lectures in order to catch the things that pass by too quickly. That way she can either write it down later, or I can see exactly what was covered in class to help her during our tutoring sessions.
