Session Summaries by Algebra Tutors

Syracuse University, NY Algebra tutoring
Today we discussed the definition of a function in algebra. The student did very well with this and really didn't need my help much. We also reviewed cell biology, especially matching the names of organelles to their definitions.

Today we focused on a new geometry topic: Polygons. We worked on several hand-outs from class which covered the basic facts about polygons and how to name and identify them. We talked about how polygons can be congruent or parts of polygons can be congruent. For whatever reason, the student had particularly good focus today and he showed me that he knew what he was doing without much hesitation. We also spent about 30 minutes today reviewing older material to reinforce some of the knowledge. He is showing signs of steady improvement, and he is better at recognizing what to do for each type of problem. Overall it was a very productive day.

Today we looked over the syllabus for the classes that the student is aiming to place for. Then, we started to work through a diagnostic for the pre-algebra class so that we could see what areas she would need to improve in the most in order to score well on her placement test. We also talked about a plan that, if we can follow it, could get her placed one class up from Elementary Algebra and into Intermediate Algebra, but our main focus for right now is making sure she understands the concepts from the pre-algebra class that she has to place out of.

Today we mostly worked on the new section the student is beginning on systems of equations. We covered how to solve for systems by eliminating multiple variables down to a single variable, then going back and solving for the other variable. We also covered graphing systems of equations by setting each equation to the straight line formula y=mx+b. In this format the slope of the line can be determined where m=change in y (rise)/change in x (run). Additionally, the lines can be plotted by drawing a table of values and solving for x and y to get coordinates to graph. Ultimately, the solution for the system of equations can be solved by graphing and identifying the point/coordinate (x,y) in which the two lines intercept. The student was just beginning this section, and I think once he goes over this material in his textbook and class lectures it will all come together.

Today we prepared for the student's test by reviewing the concepts that we have been covering. She brought questions to our tutoring session, and I gave her additional problems to work. We covered completing the square, factoring with addition and subtraction, using the quadratic formula and working with fractional exponents.

Today we reviewed algebra, including rules about exponents and equations of a circle. The student found it very simple to think of adding 8% tax to the cost of an item as 1.08(cost), because 8% tax is like paying 108%. Also, her mind was blown when I showed her how the equation of a circle was just the Pythagorean theorem.
