3 Put variable on one side Put numbers on other side Simplify equation Solve equation Some useful tips on taking notes in a math class. 1. Every symbol in a formula has a specific meaning. Special care is needed to be sure to copy accurately. 2. Review class notes daily as soon after class as possible. a. Rewrite the material you cannot read or will not be able to understand in two weeks. b. Fill in the gaps where the information is incomplete c. Add additional key words and ideas in the left-hand column that will improve your understanding of mathematics. d. After going over your notes, spend five minutes reviewing the most important parts of the lecture. Try to summarize these major parts in your mind, as well as putting them together with concepts learned in the past lectures. 3. Use class notes as a supplement to text. Try to find the relationship between them. 4. Periodically, briefly outline what has been studied, in order to highlight progression and relationships from topic to topic. 5. Keep a list or set of index cards of key terms, formulas, important principles, symbols, etc. 5. Know when to take notes in class. Pay attention to cues indicating important material if the instructor is: a. presenting contradictory or unrelated facts of ideas b. writing on the board c. indicating that certain types of problems will be on the test d. summarizing e. pausing f. repeating statements g. enumerating items (1, 2, 3, or a, b, c) h. working on several examples of the same type i. indicating that the problem is tricky

4 j. indicating that a certain procedure is difficult General Tips for Studying Math 1. Math is not a spectator sport. Active participation by doing is essential. 2. Daily practice speeds up learning math regardless of how often the class meets. 3. Keep an organized notebook for a math class keeping class notes, homework, other problems, and graded quizzes on each topic together. 4. Always redo problems and exercises from homework, quizzes, or exams done incorrectly. It is essential to erase wrong information from your memory. 5. Each day, copy some sample problems from class notes or text and their solutions on index cards problem on one side and solution on the other side. Front Side Reverse Side Find 6% of \$8.750 Solution: 6% =.06 \$8.750 x.06 \$ An excellent, handy supply of practice exercises for reviewing for exam will result. By shuffling the index cards, problems appear in random order to provide a true test of how well material is known, since there will be no hints of chapter, section titles, etc. to remind your of solution methods. At least twice a week, shuffle the deck of index cards and deal yourself the number of problems you can complete in one hour. Work the problems and grade yourself by comparing your solutions with the ones found on the reverse side of the index cards. For each problem you cannot work without looking at the solution, find at least two similar problems in your index cards, notes, or book. Work those problems also until you understand and remember the procedure. 6. Math requires cumulative learning what you learn today, you use tomorrow to learning something else. Therefore never skip topics and try to never miss

5 a class since there will be a missing link in your development of the concepts. 7. Remembering to work math problems in an orderly manner speeds up the learning process. Even when working on scrap paper, label problems and work with problems or equations aligned in columns or other appropriate formats. Using lined paper helps. 8. Use a calculator for speed and to check accuracy only after you understand the particular procedure, method, or function. Be sure to study the manual for your model. How to Review Math Quizzes or Exams 1. Spread review out over more than one study session. Short, repeated study sessions are recommended. 2. Prepare a list of specific objectives you expect to be on the test. 3. Locate and work examples and problems related to each of the objectives you have listed. 4. Learn definitions of new words. Being able to repeat these definitions orally is a good check to see if you really can recall the appropriate definition. When learning a definition, note any specific limitations. 5. Look for and try to recall general patterns in the problems. Study previous quizzes, and in particular, problems you worked incorrectly. 6. Reword problems from past homework assignments. Compare your answers with your original results. 7. Never just look over homework or previous tests; instead, rework the problems completely. 8. Two nights before a test, work the sample tests at the end of each chapter which the test will cover. 9. Be sure to ask the instructor about anything you don t understand. 10. If the instructor offers a review session, pay especially close attention as he or she may have just have finished writing the test and may be creating review problems that are similar to those that will be on the test.
