Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I continued to review for her final, reviewing area of polygons, surface area of polyhedron, cones, cylinders, pyramids, and volumes of polyhedrons, cylinders, and prisms."
"We reviewed circle and triangle geometry for the student's exam, including algebraic solving for unknowns."
"We were practicing problems from all the topics covered this semester. He has to practice some problems on his own."
"The student and I spent this session going over focus questions. He did a lot of them without any help, and though he didn't get them all right, he says he is satisfied with his score. I encouraged him to prepare for upcoming tests. Hopefully he stays motivated until the month is out."
"The student has a test tomorrow. We therefore worked on a review of the entire chapter's material. We covered the equations for area of a variety of shapes (circle, triangle, trapezoid, parallelogram, kite, & regular polyhedrons). The student had some trouble with the regular polyhedrons when both apothem and side were not both given. We also reviewed radian to degree calculations, perimeter & area ratios of similar shapes, and arc length & arc measure calculations. The student is now working on probability. This includes normal distributions and sample population proportion. She was unclear about confidence intervals and margin of error calculations. We reviewed both of these and the associated z-scores for 90% and 95% confidence intervals."
"The student and I continued the review sessions. We answered problems and made sure he encountered at least one problem on the list."
