Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I went over the last of his new functions: Hyperbolas. It will now be his responsibility to memorize these functions, their differences, their relationships, and their main characteristics. We will continue to work to ensure that efficiency and completeness become his goals and have him more eager to problem-solve when he gets stumped."
"The student was studying for a test and he wanted to work through the review. The review included: using the distance formula, using the midpoint formula, determining the equation of perpendicular bisector, using equations of parabolas, ellipses, hyperbolas, and circles to graph them."
"The student began a new concept in math, logarithmic functions, so we had a lot of work to do developing new ideas and equations. But he caught on fairly quickly, and he was able to complete his homework on his own. It will take a little more practice to perfect, but he made great progress."
"Most of the time during this session was dedicated to worksheets involving related rates problems. The most challenging issue with these problems was performing the implicit differentiation on equations derived from the given information. The student was able to complete and understand his graded homework assignment."
"The student and I continued practicing using the derivative and second derivative to find the local and global maxima and minima of functions, as well as their critical values and critical points. We reviewed homework problems and practiced problems from the book. We also worked through optimization problems and previewed material that will be useful for our discussion of integration."
"We covered critical points, inflection points, maxima and minima, specifically, how to determine these from a graph or using first and second derivative tests. We also covered how to draw a derivative graphs using a function graph. Secondly, we covered topics in optimization and worked out few example problems."
