Recent IB Further Mathematics HL Tutoring Session Notes

We spent a lot of time working on the student's study guide for Algebra 1. He seemed confident with some of the concepts until I asked him to do a few practice problems. However, after we worked through and practiced, he was able to understand and make connections with other topics from the chapters we covered. We worked on factoring three and four term polynomial equations, as well as inequality graphs. We also worked on the formula y=mx+b and how to correctly graph the equation by finding the x-intercept, y-intercept and the slope of the equation. We also clarified his questions with certain methods to use and what would be easier and more understandable.

Today was our last session of the year. He reviewed for his final. As I told his mother, he is very talented in math, but sometimes makes small mistakes, and his anxiety can get in the way. We have worked on the latter issue.

The student reviewed combinations, conversions of volumes and weights, time, temperature, and word problems "backing" into the answer. Evidently, the student did not cover combinations during her normal coursework, but grasped the concept quickly.

We reviewed graphing lines from an equation and table. We began to talk about affine transformations: translations, reflections, and rotations. I described how to carry out each transformation visually and mathematically. We also practiced composing several transformations.

The student successfully completed a worksheet based on calculating areas of various figures. He did well with recognition of the formulas. Overall, a good final session with the student for the academic year!

I started with math, going over the topics that we learned in our last session to make sure that the student remembered the concepts and understood how to apply them to different problems. He was doing very well with volume, area and surface area of two and three-dimensional objects. We went over angles, which have been the toughest concept for him. I was very pleased to see that he was doing very well. It seemed as though something finally clicked for him and he was able to recognize angles and answer all the questions I had for him. When I was satisfied that he had mastered this concept we ended our session by reviewing parts of speech and diagramming some sentences.
