Studying 101: How to Study and Pass

There are many ways to help yourself learn the material you need to know to pass any class…including science classes!

In this Lesson you will learn some techniques and skills that will help you to pass my class.

Some of the techniques will work for you and some may not. Each of you is unique. Different techniques work better with different personalities. You must determine which techniques work best for you. However, to do this you must TRY each technique and see if it works.

The Cornell Method

The most important thing about studying notes using the Cornell

Method is what you place in the margins. After you have taken notes in class and are ready to study them, go through your notes and separate them with lines into ideas. For example, put a line between the definition of a word, it’s examples, and other comments and the definition of another word and it’s examples and comments.

The next step is to place a “cue” word in the margin at the left hand side. The cue word is a single word to cue you to recall the information in the notes. For example, if you were studying the definitions mentioned above, you would write the word being defined.

The last step is to cover the notes and, looking only at the cue words, try to say what is in the notes. If you can say it, you know it.

slide3

The ReWrite Method

As you rewrite your notes, leave out definitions or important information and then try to say them without looking before you rewrite them. If you get it right then you can rewrite it.

Biology = study of life

Characteristics of life

Made of cells unicellular = one celled

multicellular = many celled

specialized = many celled with cells having special jobs

Reproduce

asexual = one gene donor

sexual = two gene donors

Universal genetic code

all animals have same stuff making up genes

Grow and Develop

Get Food and Use Energy

metabolism = rate at which organism uses energy

The Code Method

1. Transform your notes into codes.

2. Rewrite your codes on scrap paper trying to say what they mean each time you write them. Repeat until you can write your codes without looking and say what they mean without looking.

If you memorize your code, you can then write it on your test sheet or a blank piece of paper given to you for your test and refer to it during your test.

THIS IS NOT CHEATING!

The Flash Card Method

Make a set of index cards with the cue word on the front and the answer on the back.

(This is time intensive – takes a lot of time.)

slide6

The Study Buddy Method

First, write all of your notes as questions with answers.

Next, find a study buddy and take turns asking your questions to each other.

4. ………… (continue)

Made of cellsDefine unicellular = one celled

Define multicellular= many celled

specialized = Cells in a many celled organism that have special jobs are termed ___________ cells.

Reproduce What is the difference between asexual and sexual reproduction?

asexual = one gene donor

sexual = two gene donors

Universal genetic code

CAUTION! Be sure not to waste your study time chatting, giggling and not studying.

…Or as a group.

You can study with one buddy…

The Rhyme/Association Method

Rhymes don’t need to “rhyme,” they just need to help you remember.

Some definitions lend themselves to making rhymes and sayings to help you remember them.

Biomagnification, it increases concentration. (rhyme)

DNA has C and G and T and A. RNA fills with uracils. (rhyme)

The cell’s nucleus is like a command center. (association)

Operant conditioning is trial and error operating. (association)

The chick said “I’mimprinting” on my mother hen! (association)

Insight Learning is using previous knowledge on anything in sight even if it’s a different problem. (rhyme)

Operons turn a gene on. (rhyme)

Humans are eukaryotes (you-(can)-carry-oats because you are human). (rhyme)

Photosynthesis, CO2 gets into this. (rhyme)

My toes do mitosis to fill in lost skin. (rhyme)

My ovaries do mi-osiswhen they make eggs. (rhyme)
