Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I went over his Modeling with polynomial functions study guide. We reviewed finding zeroes, using algebra to solve for particular variables, synthetic division and remainder theorem, factoring polynomials, simplifying expressions involving i, and solving polynomial equations of nth degree."
"The student and I went over his practice test. I had to explain why and how I arrived at my answer. I gave him a chance to answer the questions to see when he knew. I had to go over the definition of probability. We used the z-score formula often, looked at graphs to identify what kind of distribution. One of the questions dealt with interquartile range(IQR). We talked about left skewed and right skewed data."
"The student and I went over his quiz and homework from last week. This included concepts such as multiplying fractions, finding like-terms, calculating tax, and absolute value. Overall, he is grasping everything very well in class."
"The student and I went over indefinite integrals through techniques of integration. We also went over the disc, washer and shell method of finding volumes of revolutions about the x and y-axes. We also went over volume, surface area and the arc length of graphs. We reviewed her previous test and plan to study more on Monday for her upcoming test."
"The student and I went over line equations and the many methods to find the equations given different pieces of data. We also went over the method of how to find the inverse function of a given function as well. After he felt more comfortable with these topics, we did a small review on the material we covered over the past few weeks, since he has a test on Thursday. The student seemed to understand the material well and was able to demonstrate to me that he understood."
"The student and I went over linear approximations today. The basic idea, I explained, is that we use the rate of growth of a function at a point as a basis for the functions general growth. This, of course, will only then serve as an approximation. Yet, for sufficiently small changes in x, this approximation may be quite accurate. She was able to solve several problems successfully during our session."
