  • Be specific.

MATH

PERIMETER

GEOMETRY

important stuff only

IMPORTANT STUFF ONLY!

  • Keywords
  • Main Ideas
  • Important Concepts
  • New Vocabulary

If you are writing every word

the instructor is saying,

you’re writing way too much!

look for cues

LOOK FOR CUES

  • Repeats
  • Writes on board
  • Changes voice
  • Emphasizes in any way

If that little voice in your head

thinks it is important, then

write it down!

be quick

BE QUICK

  • Use symbols and abbreviations.
  • Don’t worry about mechanics.
  • Write in phrases.
  • Leave space to add more detail later.

If you fall behind the speaker,

you’re writing too much.

question

QUESTION

  • Always be thinking of questions.
  • If you don’t understand, ask.
  • Write questions when you review.
  • Make them hard.

The only stupid question

is the one you don’t attempt

to answer.

review

REVIEW

  • ASAP!
  • Check accuracy of notes.
  • Write Questions & Summary.
  • Underline/Highlight important stuff.

Most forgetting happens

in the first 24 hours.

summarize

SUMMARIZE

  • Tell what you learned.
  • Main ideas, not details.
  • Don’t give a class play-by-play.

If you can’t explain what you

learned, did you learn anything?

study

STUDY

  • Read over notes.
  • Recite aloud.
  • Self-Test.
  • Compare with other students.

Waiting until the night before

the test to study is a sure way

to lower your grade.
