|How To Be Successful In Math|
1. Attend nearly every class session and when absent, seek ways to learn the material covered in class.
2. Conscientiously prepare work assigned for class.
3. Learn from mistakes made on assignments. Seek help from the teacher, peers, and/or the math lab.
4. Set aside time necessary to be successful.
5. Study for exams by reviewing notes and assignments. Do extra problems in the book for concepts you feel you need more practice with.
6. Pay attention to detail. Showing all steps vertically will help you avoid notational errors, e.g., accidentally changing digits, dropping or altering algebra symbols, leaving off negative signs, etc.
7. Create a peer support network. Exchange phone numbers so that you can call each other to discuss any problems you are having with an assignment.
8. Bring your materials to class. This includes your notebook, paper, assignments, textbook, a pencil, and a calculator - preferably a graphing calculator.
