TIPS FOR STUDYING MATH


 

Go to class.  When you are absent, make up your work immediately.

 

Ask questions and listen when others ask questions.  This is VERY important.

 

Review regularly.  10-20 minutes a day, before a quiz & test. Do this in addition to the assigned homework.

 

Review your notes before beginning your homework.

 

Show ALL of your work and check your work.  Developing good habits during practice will help you during tests and quizzes.

 

Practice, practice, practice.  This is the most important part. Rework homework problems and rework problems from your notes.  Cover the answers and quiz yourself.


Make a list of important concepts and formulas.   Explain the concepts in your own words, and review the list so that you can memorize what’s really important.

Homework Policy & Philosophy

Students are to be actively working for 240 minutes a day. This includes the class time. 

 

Objectives of Independent Practice:

  • To provide practice and review of what was previously taught
  • To strengthen understanding of the new concept
  • To extend learning beyond the classroom

Types of Homework Assigned:

  • Practice; help students master skills taught in class
  • Preparation; help students benefit from subsequent lessons
  • Extension: requires students to use a new skill in combination with other known concepts
  • Creative; requires students to integrate many skills and concepts

NOTETAKING

Mathematicians use notebooks to record data, make drawings, ask questions, and much more.

Your notebook is a mathematical tool that will represent you and your experiences in mathematics this school year.  Your math notebook will be used daily, so be responsible and make sure that you bring it to class every single day. If you are absent, make sure you complete any pages in the notebook you missed.

 

Rules:                                                    Reason:

1.) Write neatly and legibly

To be able to go back and read past examples and activities.

2.) Create a cover page for each Chapter (include name and per. #)

It’s your notebook, make it yours!

3.) Number the pages

Organization!

4.)Title and Date each page

Organization!

5.) Copy everything Mrs. Dahl writes

Mrs. Dahl would not write anything that is not valuable to your learning.

6.) Use color for your notes, but do all math work in pencil.

Colors are great, but using pencil for all work lets you erase any mistakes.

Grading

Please Note: Students who have a "D" average in homework have earned an "N" in effort. Students who have an "F" in homework have earned a "U" in effort.
