Anticipatory Study Ideas

Screen Shot 2017-02-17 at 7.10.45 AMJust came across an amazing study skills website that made me excited to read it all. Mostly talking about Anticipatory and Planning. It actually has Workshops for critical Thinking & Sound Moving Images Library. This is to help with the students learning skills & for student success.

This article covers time management, goal setting, breaking down your day so it can all be done, also managing your time and how much time will it take to finish your project as well as how to make a plan to get it all done. There are different strategies for each person to help plan in advance and to make it all come together.

I liked the planning in advance whether it be a day, week or a month. Putting it all together because it’s not all due at the same time. You are just needing to adjust your schedule and make sure you don’t PROCRASTINATE!!!
Motivation is what brings it all together.

Read this article, there is a lot to glean from this one.

Math Tip needed at the beginning of the semester

mburnell

Madeline Burnell says that “Making the most out of Math class was what I needed at the beginning of the term. The style of note taking would have been helpful to learn sooner. The structure of notes makes finding examples easy to find and better organized .

I will from now on use this style when taking notes for math and other similar classes.”

Student adds tips on how to read a Math Textbook

After reading the handout on how to read a Math Textbook http://cc.pima.edu/~carem/Mathtext.html I find the most important steps here to be 4, 5, and 8. Though most of these steps are are fairly self-evident, it is always a good reminder that it is important to slow down, pay attention to diagrams, and write a few things down. I would add a few extra tips:

  • There’s a very useful glossary at the end of every book.
  • Use the table of contents as a checklist of topics you’ve mastered.
  • Make a master list of all the formulas you need for each chapter and stick it in the book like a bookmark so you can glance over it every class (I cannot stress this enough)
  • If you really can’t stand books, look for an online video tutorial and make a Word document where you save your video links.
