Session Summaries by Biology Tutors

Michigan City, IN Biology tutoring
We continued on from where we had left off on the previous week, concerning the practice final exam from a previous year. The student was having difficulty with calculating the fixation index (Fst) using the expected and observed heterozygosity values. He had gone to his teaching assistant for further help with the concept and we were able to make further progress with the issue using the practice problems. Next, I provided him with the working definition of linkage disequilibrium (LD) in order to complement his knowledge of the formula. He used a genetic alignment and different haplotype frequencies per deme to calculate LD using a small subset of sites and then he performed a Fst calculation using the same sites. He seemed more comfortable with the material after going through the example together. We spent the remainder of the session looking at the example of positive selection across different primate groups. We calculated the synonymous and non-synonymous rates of mutation across each lineage and within each internal branch, and I provided more thorough interpretation of the different types of ratios. The student indicated that he could make the calculations on the exam and determine which taxa underwent selection depending on if the ratio was greater than one. He made good progress and we agreed to meet one final time.

We went through 12 problems, which were from previous final paper. We applied all theories to the comprehensive problems. The contents we covered were root mean square value, dc value, their difference, frequency response, half power frequency calculation, magnetic circuit, Ohm's law, reluctance, magnetomotive force, flux, permeability, reflected impedance in transformer circuit, turns ratio calculation, features of voltage follower, the relationship between non-inverting amplifier and voltage follower, time domain transient response, and Thevenin's equivalent and maximum power transform in frequency domain.

We went through a dynamics problem related to friction and Newton's laws of motion. I used a clear free body diagram to explain to the student how to solve the problem and broke it down to simpler form. I solved different examples related to his homework. He seemed to have understood by the end of the session.

We went through a full practice exam for the upcoming test the student has. This included stoichiometry, percent mass, acid-base titration, redox reactions, and empirical formulas. He did well with most problems, but a few things were challenging. However, with practice, he understood everything.
