Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We worked on properties of triangles regarding proofs of congruence (SSS, SAS, ASA, SSA, AAS, and AAA) and using flow chart proofs. The student is making progress getting the conjectures down and is certainly showing improvement with his proofs."
"We worked on the solutions of 3 equations with 3 unknowns. The first few were solved by substitution. The last problems were more difficult since they had to be solved in pairs, eliminating one of the variables. We then had a pair of equations with two variables which we could solve. The remaining variables were solved by substitution. Since the student will be doing matrices in the next section, I showed him how to solve these equations on the calculator using matrices. This can be done very quickly, and hopefully, his teacher will utilize the calculator."
"We worked on triangle postulates material that I found online. This is what the student is currently learning in class."
"We worked on triangle test review. The student had trouble from time to time, but we are slowing down to try to fill gaps when they are identified. We also work at the pace that he dictates by his understanding of the concepts. We are also working to make sure that he says when he doesn't understand something."
"We worked through a review of some past math assignments, which involved reviewing (or relearning!) the different forms of the equation of a line, and how to graph lines using all combinations of point, slope, intercepts, and horizontal/vertical."
"We worked through constructions of circumcenter and incenter problems for the student's homework. He did well and was able to complete the problems on his own. We will start working on the review for the final exam. He does not have his test grade back yet. I will find out from his teacher what concepts will be covered in the next few weeks."
