Session Summaries by Physics Tutors

Tacoma, WA Physics tutoring
In this first session, we covered vector mathematics, including definition, addition, subtraction, multiplication, and cross products. This equates to roughly Chapter 1 of their Physics class. Students requested additional homework to gauge process in meantime, and I will be assigning them a few. I will continue with a focus on equation application.

We spent the majority of time working on problems involving gravitational force. We worked through a couple of problems and defined the values in the equations. The student seems to be okay with the math involved. She told me that they don't use a textbook and rely mostly on practice packets assigned by her teacher. Her mother and I have decided that going forward, we will spend some more time working through concepts, and a little less focus on the problems themselves in order to help round out the knowledge base.

Today, we covered more review questions for her exam this week. Particularly we reviewed sum of torque = I alpha, and conservation of energy, including rotational energy. The student understands the basic physics, now it is the challenge of the hardest problems that she is trying to work out. I am very proud of her achievement!

Yesterday we met for 1.5 hours to prepare for her Physics exam this week. We covered the rule of opposing forces and whether or not they are equal in varying situations. I saw that she did well on her previous Pre-Calc exam and we were hoping to also do well on the upcoming Physics exam.

We went over examples of projectile motion - horizontally launched objects and objects launched at an angle. She said at the beginning that she didn't understand it at all, but she picked it up very quickly after asking a few questions. She was able to go through at least 5 different variations of similar problems. We spent a lot of time talking conceptually about the problems. She received a 24/25 on her last quiz on finding vector components, which she was very happy about.

The student and I covered kinematic equations again. We really broke down the word problems that seemed to be difficult for her. She understands the equations themselves, but was having a tough time figuring out what they represented. I gave her some rules for knowing what givens are present in a word problem and that seemed to help. I was really happy the way the session ended. Something seemed to click for her and she got a little excited about understanding the concepts - she even took the initiative on her own to work through a bunch of problems with me there to guide her. I thought that was a great sign and hopefully it carries over to Tuesday.
