Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We covered the lecture slides on national, public, and private savings, and budget surplus vs. deficit. We covered the loanable funds market and what will cause a shift in the supply or demand of loanable funds. We also discussed the crowding out effect that occurs when there is a budget deficit. We worked on problems dealing with future and present value, the interest rate, and whether a present investment is worthwhile given the future value. We also covered risk aversion, moral hazard vs. adverse selection, valuation of stocks, and the rule of 70, along with growth rate, GDP per capita, and how those vary throughout the world."
"We research the internet to find raw data for the student's paper. We identified variables, and started to enter them into Excel to analyze."
"We reviewed chapter 10 and went over many problems from the homework due that day. We reviewed test statistics and how to calculate them using z-scores and t-tests. We also reviewed how to plot the data in a normal curve and how to decide whether the null hypothesis was rejected or not. We went over converting z-scores to p values and how to interpret the data from there. We will go over chapter 11 next time as well as more homework."
"We reviewed confidence intervals for the student's test on Thursday. He didn't appear to be struggling; he just needed a little "confidence" boost, so to speak. I think he is definitely understanding the material better than he ever has."
"We reviewed for the final going over hypothesis testing, p-values, standard deviation of sample formula, confidence intervals, standard errors, and z-scores."
"We reviewed for the student's exam this evening. I wish we had more time to review old material. We also covered Chs. 9 and 10 of her textbook, which was more hypothesis testing (of variance) and simple linear regression."
