Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We finished the Unit 2 review problems and started Unit 3. We mostly reviewed all the questions listed and distinguished the difference between rate of change, average rate of change, and percentage rate of change. I think the student is more confident for the final exam now. I hope everything goes well tomorrow!"
"We practiced using u-substitution to evaluate definite and indefinite integrals. We talked about how to decide what to let u equal based on what functions we are able to integrate using antiderivatives and on what we can use to cancel out any other variables that won't be directly changed to u's. We practiced taking the derivative of our chosen function of u to find the substitution to change dx into du in the integral. Lastly, we practiced using the fundamental theorem of calculus to evaluate definite integrals, and we talked about some of the theorems that will be on the upcoming test. The student is doing better using antiderivatives to solve and evaluate integrals. She is also doing better choosing the function for u and substituting in for dx. I left her some additional u-substitution practice problems for indefinite integrals."
"We prepped for her final with an outline on limits, derivatives, functions, and optimization problems. She knows what areas she needs to practice before Tuesday."
"We primarily covered the use of spherical coordinates for the evaluation of triple integrals. I thought we made good progress in visualizing the regions of integration, and switching to the other coordinate systems we already know."
"We reviewed a couple of questions on infinite limits, optimization, linearization, IVT, and integrals. The student has a good idea of the concepts and retains new information well, so we went over how to solve particular problems."
"We reviewed a past quiz the student took that covered related rates and integrating functions. I helped her work through the problems. We also reviewed how to find the antiderivative of different kinds of functions and how to integrate using the u substitution method."
